We are in the process of learning new modes of ministry to meet changing health requirements

  • Jesus at the centre – learning to live the life, walk the walk in everything we do.
  • Gathering together for Worship – in person and online, church together anchors our life.  Sermons are biblically based with a focus on life application. Music is led by a worship band.
  • Discipleship through Faith Beginnings – For people exploring Christian Faith and how to connect with God.
  • Discipleship through Growing in Faith – Through Ministry Teams and small groups.
  • Expressing the love of God in the community – We are a welcoming and diverse community who are loving inclusive through personal relationships. We actively support an end to food scarcity in our community.
  • Expressing the love of God beyond our borders – which has been expressed through the sponsorship of 3 families of refugees in recent years and Mikanduri Village of Hope in Kenya.
  • Children and Youth – Children and Youth are also worshippers, learners and followers of Jesus.
