Latest Update – 26 March – We continue to reassess our ministries in accordance with Federal and State Government updates. To ensure that we keep to the social distancing restrictions, face to face ministries and meetings cannot continue. But just because we are isolated, does not mean we have to be disconnected. Prayer remains essential. We’d love to continue to encourage prayer so please, at the times you would normally gather to pray for regular prayer meetings. Please continue to do so but in your home. Our services will continue to be livestreamed and homegroups are encouraged to use social media options to keep meeting.

The Livestream will only start at 9am and not before. The replay will only start at 5.30pm and not before. In order to view the service, please wait until that time to click on the link. Thank you

 

(24/03/2020): In light of recent government updates, all face to face prayer meetings have been called off. We’d love to continue to encourage prayer so please, at the times you would normally gather to pray, please continue to do so but in your home. Our services will continue to be livestreamed to your lounge room and homegroups may continue to meet as they’re able, provided they adhere to the 4m2/person rule, people are seated 1.5m apart and outdoors where possible.

Livestream – Each Sunday a service will be live streamed at 9am and repeated at 5.30pm.

  • “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its water roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.” (Psalm 46:1-3)
