What to Expect

What are services like?

The services are a mix of traditional worship style and informal. We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month in with a lovely, sung setting.

What is the community like?

We have families of 4 generations in the church - members vary from 102 years old to 2 months old. Friendly, faithful, loving, and inclusive - that's who we strive to be.

What if I'm not a Christian?

We hope that through our service: its readings, hymns, the sermon and liturgy (which means: the work of the people) you might experience the Good News of Jesus Christ to all. We welcome all - and we mean it!
