Our Church

Our Church

We gather together as a family of believers every Saturday morning to study the Bible, worship God, support each other and strengthen friendships. We want to experience God, and be renewed in His presence. Our desire is that people encounter God through our time of worship, hearing His word and being encouraged in our fellowship.
We want to be different, to become more like Jesus, and see our families and communities transformed through the love and power of God.

What's it like?

We like to keep things friendly and casual. We're a mixed group, with young and old, different nationalities, professions and walks of life.

What happens?

We meet together to support each other and join together in worship of our creator God. You will be greeted at the door by one of our friendly members who would be only too happy to show you where everything is situated. We start with a few songs, a mix of contemporary and traditional and follow on with news of what is happening in the mission field or the part of the world that we are supporting with our Sabbath School offering. We divide into small groups for our studies.

Small Group Bible Study

9.30am – 10.45am
Join us as we study the Bible together in small groups and share the experiences of the week with each other.  There are usually about 7 adult groups covering different topics - so whether you're after a basic discussion about God, or an in depth Bible study, you're sure to find something of interest.

There are programs for all age groups from infants to teenagers, and youth with creche style groups for the younger kids with songs, activities, Bible stories and crafts. Feel free to stay with your kids, or leave them with the qualified carers and pick them up just before church.

Main Worship Service

11.00am – 12.15pm

Church is always different from one week to the next. We often have some special features during the service - video clips, guest artist or testimony.  The program includes opportunities to worship God through singing, giving (free-will offering) and prayer.

Generally there is also a 25-30 minute message from the Bible, offering practical insight into how to experience the abundant life Jesus promised. One of the primary purposes of this weekly worship service is simply to inspire people trust God more.  

A special communion service is orchestrated once a quarter (roughly every three months) whereby attenders (members or not) can participate in the Lord's supper.

After Church

Join us after church for fellowship and light meal - a great opportunity to get to know others and build friendships.
