We sincerely welcome everyone who is searching for truth from God and meaning in life. We are a church that enjoys taking God and His Word seriously, a church that strives to be loving and encouraging. We have found the Bible, God's timeless and relevant Word, not only helpful but essential in getting to know Him. May you discover the reality of the living God, and the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.
New Songs (September 2014)
A couple of times a year we spend an afternoon teaching some new songs to our congregation. These are "new" to our church but may have been written several (sometimes more!) years before. But they're still new to us and it's a great way of getting together and introducing songs that perhaps some of us have known for a while.
We'd like to introduce our our new sermon series, One Another. The church body is a family and as in any family we need to know how to relate to one another in every walk of life and in every situation. The Bible is far from silent on the matter and throughout the New Testament Jesus' followers are exhorted with many "one another" sayings such as "love one another", "serve one another", "encourage one another", "build one another up".
It's our hope that over the coming months the church will become completely soaked in these truths because it's so important for us to understand how we should function together as a church. So these will be our focus between now and Easter, not just as they are preached through on Sunday mornings but also as we look at their practical application together in our fortnightly Home Groups. We pray this series will help us to "build one another up" to the glory of God.
Knowing why you believe what you believe is critical if you are going to be effective in your Christian life. For this reason we're running a series called "Faith Foundations" where we will look at the basics of the faith and an overview of the Bible. For some this will be completely new territory, for others perhaps a useful reminder, but everyone is welcome to attend.
These classes will run on the 3rd Sunday each month, after the morning service. We'll provide a soup lunch and then aim to start at 1pm, with each session lasting no more than an hour. Children at primary school should have no problem joining in but there is a creche available for the very young.

Why should I read the Bible?
It's become traditional for people to begin each new year by resolving to do things differently. Whether it's to stop smoking, to lose weight, to get fit or something else, every resolution is made with a goal in mind.
With this in mind, it's good for the Christian to make resolutions too. Lets face it, not one of us is sinless: that's why we followed Christ in the first place. While we are no longer mastered by sin we are still prone to getting ourselves tangled up in it. Knowing God's word - the Bible - can help us avoid getting into sin in the first place. But if you're already in a mess it can also help you get untangled.
In his sermon entitled, Breaking Free from Sin, John McArthur challenges us that knowing and memorising scripture is vital in the fight against sin in our lives.
