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

They’d been a nation that worshipped God, a nation that identified with God, a nation in which each generation taught the things of God to the next generation, in which children grew up practicing the faith of their parents, and grandchildren the faith of their grandparents.…

Broken Stories

(Due to technical failure, this sermon wasn’t recorded….)
1 Samuel 16:1-7 | John 9:13-17, 35-41
On the surface, 1 Samuel chapter 16 tells a simple story. King Saul, the first King of Israel, has gone bad; and while he still rules, God has rejected him. Samuel, God’s prophet, is commanded by God to go to Bethlehem, to the house of Jesse – for Jesse was an honourable man, obedient to the law of God – and secretly anoint a new king.…

Two Encounters

strongExodus 17:1-7 | John 4:5-30
As we travel through the weeks of Lent, the lectionary is offering us a series of vignettes onto Jesus’ life and ministry, a series of conversations between Jesus and different people who came across his path.
Last week we had the story of Jesus and Nicodemus; today, the Samaritan woman at the well.…
