WHO WE ARE
Our aim is to worship God with our voices, our hearts and our minds. At the centre of our worship is Jesus Christ, who enables us to have a proper relationship with God. We believe the Bible is the word of God, therefore it has an important place in our lives. At each service the bible is read and explained. We praise God by singing Psalms, scriptural paraphrases and hymns. We seek to share the message of Jesus with everyone and to show his care and compassion in practical ways in our community.
