Our Services

What are services like?
They are a blended service with a liturgy that changes somewhat and we add drama and other things to mix things up.

What is the community like?
We are friendly and caring but nor over-bearingly so. Good mix of ages with the wisdom of the elders and the energy of the middle group and the enthusiasm of the youth and young adults and the joy of the children.

What if I'm not a Christian?
No worries. There is room for all to bring their doubts, their questions, their seeking. No one will tell you what or how or even if to believe - we will share our faith and thoughts and it is up to you to take what you will from them
