SUNDAY SERVICES

Every Sunday offers five worship choices. Each has a distinct identity and style. They range from ‘traditional’ to ‘contemporary’ – mainly based on whether they have hymns and an organ or worships songs with a band.

Time it right and you’ll find refreshments being served either before or afterwards.

All our services include a Bible-based talk focused on applying its teaching to our daily lives. We are usually working our way through one of the books of the Bible.

The current list of sermon topics, who is speaking, and when can be found on our Term Card. And there’s an easy way to catch up with past sermons here.
