We offer a variety of ways to connect with one another as a community, and we invite you to participate in any of these as a way to get to know us, yourself and God better. We also have a number of community services that you may wish to be a part of.
Sunday Youth Groups are held during the 9am Sunday morning service for Year 7–13.
Two Ignition Youth Groups run on Friday nights during the school term at the church: Year 7 & 8 from 6 - 7:30pm, and Year 9 - 13 from 7:30 - 9:30pm.
For more information, please contact our Youth Pastor.
JAM (Jesus and Me) is our programme for children (preschoolers to Year 6). JAM occurs during the Sunday morning worship services at 9am and 11am. JAM aims to encourage children to develop their faith and knowledge of Jesus through a time of fun teaching using Bible stories, drama, craft, games and song.
These groups are designed to be a more intimate setting than our Sunday services, and are a great way for you and others to get to know each other better while sharing, caring and growing together in your faith. They are often hosted in the home of one of our church members. Please contact Val Brim via the church office (ph 832 5998) if you are interested in joining a group.
We believe that God is interested in our daily lives as individuals and as a community. God answers our prayers and wants us to be free to bring all our needs and concerns to him. We therefore provide an opportunity for prayer both as a community and for the individual.
We have regular prayer meetings throughout the week:
Before the Sunday services, a prayer meeting is held in the church at 8.30am. This is a time of seeking God in prayer and being led by the Holy Spirit.
The prayer chain is requests for prayer, communicated by telephone, resulting in a chain of people praying for various need. Prayer, particularly urgent needs, can be requested. Our prayer chain is coordinated by Beryl Baldock.
This is a practical course that gives married couples the tools to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime. Over eight evenings spent together, couples talk about important issues that can get swept under the carpet in the rush of everyday life. Topics covered include recognising each others needs, learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurts, knowing how to make each other feel loved, relating to parents and in-laws, good sex, making time for each other and having fun together. Contact the church office for information on the next course.
