Come, Worship With Us 

We have returned to worship as a community in our church, and would be pleased to welcome you. If you would like to join us on zoom, please contact us through email address below. Alternatively, you can worship at your own time on Sunday, using the provided Order of Service and Sermon.

Worship is at the heart of Christian community; worship in contemporary language that is joyful, relevant and reflects the long traditions of the church. We embrace both traditional and new ways and times of worship.

Please be aware that our worship service is a fully vaccinated event.  Anyone 12 years, or older, will be asked to show their COVID-19 vaccination certificate prior to participation.  (click here to view our COVID-19 policy)

Sunday School- 9:30am

Sunday worship includes time for children, sometimes with ‘Godly Play’, then the children move to Sunday School. The program uses the UCA’s ‘Seasons of the Spirit’. As our young folk mature and grow in faith their discussions become more discerning and enriching.
