There's always plenty going on! Below you'll find some of the things we are involved with. Our aim is that through these programmes we would equip children, young people and adults for a lifetime of following Jesus.
Please get in touch if you'd like to get involved.
At Sunday School our aim is to introduce and develop children's understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Activities are used to help reflect on the lessons taught. Sunday school is held for all children aged 3-5 during the church service on Sunday morning.
CADETS & GEMS
Cadets and Gems teaches Christian living to children in Years 5 – 10. The groups meet at the church every second Monday evening for hands-on activities such as crafts, scouting and group sports/games, as well as bible study.
Youth groups are a place where young people can meet together to grow and encourage each other as disciples of Christ. This group is for people aged 15 years and over, who meets fortnightly on Thursday nights.
Catechism is a Bible class for young adults. Younger groups spend a year in each of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Older groups progress into tackling questions about the doctrine, how we can better know God and how we can follow Christ in a rapidly changing society. Classes meet on Tuesday evenings.
LADIES @ EIGHT
Ladies @ Eight is a gathering of ladies of all ages that meet for a time of singing, devotion, craft, activities, encouragement and fellowship. The group meets about eight times a year on Monday nights.
BIBLE STUDY GROUPS
Small group Bible studies are held with the desire to grow people in their understanding of the gospel through the Scriptures, and to deepen relationships with each other. Groups include a mid-week ladies bible study as well as fortnighly and monthly studies where people meet at various church members’ homes.
