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

The last enemy

1 Corinthians 15:1-26, 51-57
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been looking at this letter written by Paul to the Church in Corinth; a Church divided, that he called to unity in the foolishness of the way: the foolishness of the cross. Then last week, we read his amazing, beautiful poem to love; his description of a love which goes far beyond the sort of love we find easy or automatic, which transcends the barriers and divisions that we so easily place between ourselves.…

mark 12:28-31 | 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
The Corinthian Church was divided.
We heard about this last week, about people forming into camps, parties, within the Church, arguing amongst themselves about which group had the truest understanding, the most faithful interpretation of the message of Jesus.
They boasted, about their spirituality, about their understanding and ability to teach, about their miraculous acts, about their generosity, about their own physical suffering for the faith.…
