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

Genesis 37:3-8, 26-34; 50:15-21
Let’s face it, the story of Joseph is one that presents us with a couple of problems. Blatant parental favouritism, God sending visions to a man with an arrogant disregard for the feelings of his brothers or parents; brothers selling their brother into slavery, as a more profitable option than simple patricide.…

Faded Promise

Genesis 15:1-6
After all of these things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision.
The nature of reading the great stories of the scriptures, especially the big, epic tales of the Old Testament, in public worship is that we inevitably telescope them; we omit big chunks, and focus in on some of the vignettes.…
