Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings we meet at 9:30am for worship. All ages join together for the start, and then we divide into two: Godly Play for kids aged around 3-11, and a more traditional worship service for the adults. Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of the month, and everyone, of all ages, is welcomed. After the service each Sunday we invite everyone to join us for morning tea and a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones.

Everyone is welcome at all of our services. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to contact our minister, Chris, on 0402 012 418 or

And as a result of their foolish failiure to prepare, they end up excluded, left out of the wedding banquet.…

Matthew 23:1-12 | 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13
You’ve probably gathered by now, as we’ve read through Matthew’s gospel over the course of the year, that Jesus wasn’t the biggest of the Jewish religious authorities of his day. But just in case there was any doubt left in anyone’s mind, today’s reading ought to put an end to it.…

Ranking laws

Matthew 22:15-40
So, as promised, this week we return to the passage to which we were only able to give a little time last week – and added to it the two vignettes that follow on.
The setting is Jerusalem; the time is the last week of Jesus’ life. The triumphal entry and the clearing of the temple lie behind us; the last supper and the crucifixion are just ahead of us.…
