A Brief Intro.

Sunday Service

We meet every Sunday at 10:30am for about an hour and a half. We have a time of worship followed by a Bible based message whilst also making space for people to share their stories, receive prayer and share communion together. Our services are relaxed and informal.

I'm New Here

On Your First Visit - Relax. We’re not scary. There’s no dress code. Please come as you are. Jeans and t-shirts are awesome. Be open to God. Participate as much or as little as you want. When you’re ready, our pastors would like to say hello after the service. We love kids...

Life Groups

We have various Life Groups that meet together throughout the month. They have varied flavours but focus around three key elements: 'UP' [worship and prayer], 'IN' [Bible study, discipleship and community] and 'OUT' [mission and outreach]. Please speak to the Pastors for more information.

House of Prayer

Jesus is a prime example of a life lived by prayer that offers relevance, purpose, answers, and most of all, a relationship with God the Father. He prayed prayers of thanks, prayers for healing, prayers for His disciples, and prayers for society as a whole.

The word Christian was given to the early followers of Jesus, and the name has contiued to be used to this day. Being a Christian is not about keeping rules and regulations, performing rituals or doing good works. It's about a friendship - a friendship with Jesus Christ. Jesus said that knowing him is the doorway to a special relationship with God.

"Anyone who belongs to Jesus Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten and everything is new".
  2 Corinthians 5:17

Jesus says that we can begin such a special relationship with God by committing ourselves to follow him. Millions of people today have discovered a relationship with God in this way.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
  Jeremiah 29:11
