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

Bread of Heaven
share food

Proverbs 9:1-6 | John 6:51-58
There is something about food.
In particular, there seems to be something about sharing a meal together that has been valued by cultures across the world and throughout history.
Sharing of food seems to be almost synonymous with sharing of life: we eat together with the people that we live together with – our families, our friends, our communities, our colleagues.…

Right Living

Ephesians 4:25-5:2 | John 6:41-51
It’s not often that I choose one of the readings for Sunday to be from the Epistles, the letters in the New Testament. That’s partly because I’m really keen on not excluding the Old Testament from our tradition, and feel it’s almost always appropriate to include a gospel reading; but there’s also a sense that the Epistles are generally so context specific – written to a particular people at a particular place facing particular problems – that they are better studied in depth, systematically, than picked at in a sermon.…
