"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone." Ephesians 2:19-20

What to Expect from our Services
A welcoming smile on arrival.
We always have someone at the entrance to make you feel at home and help you with anything you may be unsure of.
Prayer, Praise, & Worship
Through the month our services vary in some respects. The music, for example, includes both traditional hymns and newer songs. But other things always remain the same. Together, we will be called to worship, to confess our sins, invited to respond in faith and obedience, and commissioned to follow Christ in our lives. You can find out more on our Services page.
Refreshment & Chat
There's always an opportunity to meet and catch up with others after a Sunday service, with refreshments provided. At our Breakfast Church and Tea Time services, there's also a meal to share in together.
