We can’t wait to see you!

We’ve relaunched a face-to-face family worship service at 8.30am on Sunday mornings, but COVID-19 guidelines will make things a little different for now. 

Please note that our services are limited to 85 people (including kids), and each week you will need to book in advance for seats.

On booking you will receive guidelines about attending (which you can also read here). Please arrive early (we suggest between 8.00am and 8.20am) to check in and find seats. We use the main auditorium first, and then the back hall with a video feed as overflow. You will be directed where to go. Please follow the ushers’ directions for seating.

If you are unwell, please don’t attend right now and join us on Facebook or here on the website instead.

Also, if you feel uncertain about gathering or your are considered vulnerable (as per the health department’s definition below), please don’t feel under any pressure to attend. Thanks for your patience, we look forward to gathering with you in-person or online.

'And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”' 
(Mark 12:30–31 ESV)
