What to expect
The only thing we ask you to do is to relax. You are with people just like you. Whether you have been here many times or never been to Church before, you can anticipate an encouraging and enlightening experience.

A bit about us
Our style of worship includes both contemporary and traditional hymns and songs. Words are projected on the big screen so you won’t need any hymn books.

Feel free to sit anywhere within the congregation as there are no personalised seats.

Toilets are located in the vestibule at the back of the church and also just through the door on the pulpit side of the church.

Children at the service
Children and babies are more than welcome to stay with their parents throughout the service. Parents are also welcome to use the sofas in the coffee area during the service.

No strings attached
If you are a guest with us today, please don’t feel you need to give any money in the offering. This service is our gift to you.

In every journey of faith there are seasons of doubt, time when we are not sure what is true and who we can believe. But God is still with us even in those times. In times of uncertainty sometimes a simple prayer like this one can help carry us through.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

Amen
