Sunday Mornings @ 10:30 am
We gather every Sunday for a time of learning and community. Our worship time includes traditional and contemporary music, praying together for each other and the world, scripture and a message. Children are welcome to participate in worship and encouraged to bring their energy and enthusiasm with them and there is a space with activities for children in the sanctuary. We hope that worship nourishes and encourages us to live God’s love in our community and the world. Following worship you are invited to join us in the upper hall for refreshments.
We begin most services by lighting the Christ Candle and Peace Candle to centre and ground ourselves. This reminds us of God’s love for the world and our own commitment to pray and work for peace in the world. During the service there is often a time when people can make prayer requests. You may also speak to the minister ahead of time if you would like particular prayers but don’t want to speak publicly. We use powerpoint in worship with visual images. Sometimes there are videos, particularly Minute for Mission which connects us to God’s work in our community and around the world. The choir and musicians lead a variety of contemporary and traditional music and offer an anthem most Sundays. We celebrate communion and baptism throughout the year. Anyone who wishes is welcome to participate in communion. If you would like baptism for yourself or your child please speak to the minister.
Prayers through the Week
Prayer companions pray for those identified in our worship prayers throughout the week.
Consider becoming a prayer companion and praying in your own way and time for people and the life and work of the congregation. If you would like to commit to praying for a week please speak to Jen.
Children and Worship
Children are always welcome in worship. There is a space at the front of the sanctuary with tables and children’s activities. There is also a toddler room located by the Upper Hall where you can watch the service.
