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

Not an argument about whether or not God is good: that much was assumed by all involved.…

Introducing Job
Grieving Job and his friends.

Job 3:1-10, 4:1-9
Because the narrative lectionary, that we’ve been following this year, was developed in the northern hemisphere, we’re currently in the sort of ‘summer holiday’ season in which, instead of following the broad sweep of the Old Testament (as we will in our spring) or a gospel (as we did in our autumn), we get a number of short themed series, often exploring parts of the Bible that aren’t found in the more traditional revised common lectionary.…

Generous Love

John 13:31-35 | 2 Corinthians 8:1-15
We ended last week with Paul’s amazing claim that we have been called to share in God’s ministry of reconciliation; as ambassadors, making known the amazing grace, the incredible good fortune that we have experienced – finding ourselves reconciled with God in the person of Jesus Christ.…
