Our 10am Sunday morning services are relaxed, family friendly times of praise and worship.
Casual dress, kids, and questions are welcomed. You will be greeted at the door upon arrival and our team are happy to point you in the right direction of our facilities, programmes, and people - especially if you are visiting with us for the first time.
Our services start at 10am and generally run for about an hour and a half. During the service you can expect a time of worship, prayer, a sermon, scripture reading, and the occasional notice. The first Sunday of each month we have a shared lunch after the service, and once a month we share communion. Children's programmes run during the service, during the school term
