We consider the worship of God to be our greatest privilege and joy. On Sundays (which the New Testament calls ‘the Lord’s Day’) we meet together for worship at 11:30am and 7:00pm. Prayer is central to the life of the congregation. We often meet after the evening service for a time of praise and friendship.
We are always glad to welcome visitors, and we don’t have a dress code!
The Bible is at the centre of what we do as a church. The main part of our Sunday services is listening to God speak to us through a message from the Bible. We also sing to the Lord using psalms. The Psalms are praises that were sung by Christ and His Apostles, and have been used in worship by large sections of His flock down through the history of the Church. They are source of great joy, strength, comfort, help, nourishment and instruction for the Christian. They touch and relate to all parts of the human soul. You can hear what they sound like here:
We believe that children are part of the church, and so we encourage parents to keep their children with them in the worship service as much as possible. However there is a children’s room attached to the main building for young children if you feel you have to take them out during the service. Toys and play sets are available.
Although most people today think of church as a building, church is actually the people. The idea of the church only meeting together for an hour a week is foreign to the Bible.
We meet for Bible study and Prayer on Wednesday at 7:30 pm above the bookshop. Our Young People meet on Saturday evening from 7:00-8:30pm. We also encourage our young people to meet other young people in the area at monthly joint events. The Mums and Tots meet on Wednesday morning from 10.00-11.30am.
