DOING CHURCH WITH US
10.30am – MAIN SERVICE
We meet Sunday by Sunday in the main building to worship together from 10:30am. A crying room is also available in the main sanctuary where the service is broadcasted on speakers. Services are warm, and friendly with an open time of prayer each week and have a mixture of modern and traditional hymns and songs led by one of several music teams.
On the 2nd Sunday of the month we have a morning tea at 10:15am prior to the main service. It is a great opportunity to get to know people more as you connect with the church.
We share in Communion every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month. If you wish to attend this service but do not want to take part in communion, feel free to simply let the bread and cup pass you by.
On the last Sunday of the month we celebrate together with an informal meal in the church hall at the back of the main building. Everyone brings something to share and we all have a great time. All new people and visiting people are welcome to join in this lunch.
There are a number of groups that meet to study the bible throughout the week.
The main times are:
Ladies Bible Study Monday 9am
General Bible Study Tuesday 6:30pm
General Bible Study 2 Thursday 7:15pm
We meet together to pray on a Wednesday evening in the church. A light meal (usually soup - vegetarians are catered for) is served at 6:30pm for those wishing to attend, otherwise come along at 7pm and join together in prayer. Each week a short word is prepared and given followed by prayer for the work of the Gospel in our city to produce fruit for the kingdom; for the ongoing needs of our own church body; for people we know and love outside of the church; and for what we have heard in the recent sermon.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
The Good News
Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.
