Services often go for just over an hour and afterwards we hang around for conversations or a game of table tennis and pool which is set up each week in the church hall.
On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month there is a board games night which commences at 7.30pm in church hall and includes a short ‘bible time’. Other nights we also might go out for a meal together or see a movie.
All ages and stages of life are welcome at this service, however we do not have a creche or children’s program available on a Saturday night.
During our service we normally sing some songs, pray together, listen to a Bible talk, share how God’s word is playing out in our lives and end with conversations over morning tea together.
If you have kids, they stay with you for the first 10 minutes, then head off to a creche (preschoolers), Elevate kids’ church (Kindy to Yr 3) and ‘Fortify’ (Years 4-6). There is also a cry room with baby change facilities available for those with very little ones.
All the men and women who lead the children’s programs have a verified Working with Children Check and completed Safe Ministry Training. If you have any queries or concerns, please speak to any of our staff.
Tenebrae: 8pm Thursday 29th March
“Tenebrae” is Latin for “shadows,” and in this service, as we gradually extinguish candles, there is increasing darknes, to help us feel the sadness and pain of the lead up to Good Friday. It will be short but powerful time to reflect on the lead up to Jesus’ death. At the conclusion we leave in silence.
