Church services in action

Church services

We have two Sunday gatherings on-site at 9am and 10.30 am (also live streamed on Facebook and YouTube). For children there is a parent led creche and junior church available during the 10:30 am morning gathering. You are very welcome to join us.

The church is not so much a particular place or building, but rather a family of believers who are committed to God, to one another and to the service of God in the world.
