The church started meeting on January 1st 2012, with a desire to offer a relevant experience of walking with and worshipping our great God in this, our generation. We believe church is much more than just a Sunday morning service, and we seek to encourage the idea of bringing faith and worship into all aspects of life.
The reading of God's word, the Bible is considered the most important part of the service, although we also enjoy times of public prayer and praise, and share in communion (the Lord's supper) approximately once a month. We aim to have a wide variety of praise items during the services, using Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs as advocated in Eph. 5:19 & Col. 3:16.
The singing is led by musical instruments, backing tracks or video presentations. We project the words onto a screen for all to see, although books are available for any who prefer that option.
During the service, there is an all age talk aimed towards the younger people attending, but hopefully appropriate for all. The younger people may then leave for Sunday school or crèche while the main sermon is shared. The pastor's preaching style is mainly expository Bible teaching: a book, chapter or verse is considered and applied to our lives today.
An opportunity for fellowship is offered after every service with tea or coffee, and on the last Sunday of the month, everyone is welcome to stay for a fellowship lunch and an afternoon service when people join together from various churches in the area.
We have a weekly prayer meeting on a Thursday night (except July / August) when we gather in congregational homes. We also have occassional series' of Bible studies during the winter when we make use of selected material from DVDs & the Internet.
Once a month we host a preschool play and activity time known as Jelly Tots, with various activities followed by a lunch provided for all who attend.
As well as the crèche and Sunday school, we also have a youth fellowship when possible on the second and fourth Friday nights of the month in the pastor's home.
