We gather at 4.00pm and 6.00pm on Sundays to pray, listen to a sermon, sing Christian songs and spend informal time together. Our sermons tend to be exegetical. This means the content comes from a careful, week-by-week study of whole books of the Bible. Occasionally sermons are structured to respond to a topic.
4.00pm Sunday meeting
We've been meeting at 4.00 for many years. This is our largest service and it has a family focus as most of the people coming along are young families. Creche and Crossroads kids programs run during the meeting. This caters for kids from infants to age 7 and is run by screened volunteers. We sing around 5 songs a mix of classic hymns and modern songs and listen to a Bible-based sermon. The formal meeting finishes around 5.30pm with drinks and snacks afterwards.
6.00pm Sunday meeting
Our evening service launched in 2017. As a newer service, it's smaller than 4.00pm but is growing. This meeting has a different feel to 4pm, without the large group of kids (although we have some!). Our people are mainly youth, single people, and couples. People love smaller church services because of the intimacy and the ability to maintain close relationships with most people. So do we! But our vision for this is for it to grow big – because this means more people have access to the life-saving gospel message. The formal meeting ends around 7.30pm. For every month that has 5 Sundays, the last Sunday is set aside for a community meal for all at 4pm and 6pm and anyone else who wants to come.
Christians grow as they hear the Bible taught and apply it to their lives in practical ways – this happens through the main meeting but also as we live our everyday lives alongside each other. The aim for our small groups is that they be a space where we can be real, get involved and help each other grow in understanding and faith.
Small groups meet at a range of times and locations during the week. The program changes from group to group but there's Bible study, reading of Christian books, prayer for each other's friends / family, and social stuff. You're welcome to come whether you're a church partner or not. Check in with the welcoming team in the church foyer, or send us an email.
We run a regular meeting which works through the essentials of the Christian faith and explains what it means to live as a believer. These groups meet informally and provide an opportunity to ask questions, unpack concerns and hear other Christians explain their own journeys to faith. Here there are no dumb questions or off-limit topics. Also, food and coffee! See the welcoming team in the church foyer, or send us an email.
