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

Sheep or Goat

Ephesians 1:15-23 | Matthew 25:31-46
The thing about the parable of the sheep and the goats is that there is so much in it, so many way of approaching it, so many little observations that might change the whole way you read it, that it’s very hard to know where to start; or, for that matter, where to go, and where to end.…

Wise or Foolish

Matthew 25:1-13 | Psalm 78:1-7
Here’s a story that we all know well; and for once, a story that makes perfect sense. Wise and foolish bridesmaids; the wise, prepared for all eventualities; the foolish, not thinking ahead.
And as a result of their foolish failiure to prepare, they end up excluded, left out of the wedding banquet.…
