Frequently Asked Questions

What do you believe? What's the vision of the Church?
Visit the “Vision” section for our church vision and “Beliefs” section for our doctrinal beliefs.

What can I expect at the Church?
We are a church dedicated to providing you with an meaningful worship service where you will learn how the Bible and God directly apply to your life and the circumstances you are dealing with today.

You can come as you are, and dress however you want; from shirt and tie to sandals and shorts, everyone is welcome here. Whether you are single, married, a parent, teen or child, we strive to make church creative, relevant and excellent for you each week. Come and sing to the top of your lungs, share your faith, make some new long-lasting friends and be prepared for a life-changing experience.

What do I wear?
Clothes. But seriously. we want people to feel at home and “come as you are”. However our only direction is please make an effort to be modest with what you wear.

How do I become a member of the Church?
To find out more about getting plugged in and becoming part of our Church family, please speak to one of our Leadership Team. We can then organize to meet with you and explain what the Church is all about, its history and Leadership, and answer any questions you may have directly. Then, after that meeting you will have the opportunity to join the church and become part of the family!

What activities are there for children at the Church?
We conduct a weekly appropriate aged program for our children run by approved volunteers. Each volunteer has undergone the approved “Working with Children” Police Check and has an appropriate card. The program includes multimedia presentations together with Bible stories and other relevant material. There is also a crèche that is manned by volunteer parents during the second part of our weekly gathering on a Sunday.

Why do you have a break in the middle of the Sunday meeting?
We see that “relationships” are the most vital part of our Sunday gathering. Firstly we meet with our Lord through our worship and communion, then we meet together over a cup of tea or coffee (or water if you prefer). For the majority of the people associated with the Church, Sunday is the only time we regularly get to meet with one another. This 20 minute break gives us all opportunity to catch up, share our lives and faith and encourage each other.

Friendship is what Christianity is all about – Jesus is our friend (John 15:12-15) and He expects us love each other – that means relating to each other. We do that as part of our weekly gathering… and it works really well!

What about prayer?
Our Church is committed to praying for your needs and concerns. But it is up to you to let us know your prayer requests. Please speak to one of the Leadership Team. Please know that the Leadership Team is dedicated to praying for your request.

What if I need a pastoral visit?
We are all part of the pastoral team here at the Church. Anyone at anytime can visit and encourage another member of the Church. However if you need one of the Leadership Team to visit and assist you please do not hesitate to contact us.

What about the kids?
Along with our children and youth ministry which operates on a Sunday morning for ages 2 - 18, we have a weekly youth group that meets on a Friday evening for young people attending a minimum of semester two of grade six. There is a varied program with the prime objectives of building friendships and helping our youth understand what their relationship with Jesus can be. If you are interested in coming along please pick up a copy of our Monthly Newsletter or contact one of our Leadership Team.

Why Do We Give To The Local Church?
"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..." (Psalm 24:1)

We give opportunity each week for people who attend the Church to give towards the operational costs of running the Church and supporting its ministries and mission activities.

As Christ Followers, we believe that we are stewards of God's resources because He is the owner of all that we have. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving. Consequently we believe each person should be generous and make up their own minds as to what percentage of their income they are going to give away – to the church and to other charities and needs they come across. (See 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.)

How do we give?
We have several ways that you can give to God's work through your percentage giving and offerings. You can give cash or by cheque on Sundays, you can mail a cheque to our offices or you can have an automatic debit payment made through your bank to the Church’s account:
