We aim to cater for the needs of the whole spectrum of ages and stages of life through our various ministries in the church – all of them are geared to understanding more of how the gospel makes a difference to all of life.
Adult Bible Classes
In the New Testament preaching and teaching play a vital part in not only bringing people to faith in Jesus Christ, but helping them to grow in that faith as well. We hold classes for adults on Sunday mornings that are designed to explore books of the Bible and key aspects of the Bible’s teaching to see how they relate to what it means to be a Christian.
Church Fellowship Evenings
There is an opportunity for people in the church to meet informally on alternate Sunday evenings to get to know each other better around a buffet supper. It also provides a forum for short special presentations, interviewing visiting speakers, or discussing aspects of the church’s work and vision.
Home Groups are an important way by which we can get together for Bible Study, fellowship and prayer in the different areas from which the congregation is drawn. We generally work through different Bible books or topics with the help of a Study Guide, with each study being led by one of the elders. Different families host these groups on the last Wednesday of each month.
