I am new.
You are so welcome! If there is anything we can do to serve you we'd love to help, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
One place some find it helpful to start is by attending a service, here's what to expect...
Each Sunday we host a short gathering using Zoom. Our time together includes sung worship, prayer, news, communion and a recent story of what God has been doing. These meetings are open to those who register here.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs
- Psalm 100: 1-2
In every culture, music and singing is used to celebrate and express happiness and jubilation. As we learn to meet online we may try various ways of doing this but often it is as simple as being lead in a few songs by someone with a guitar or piano sitting at home.
We are committed to reading and understanding the Bible together. We listen to a talk that unpacks the words of the Bible in order to help us follow Jesus and apply his message to our lives. In order to make our time together 'live' as accessible to younger children as possible, this section is often a stand-alone download which you can watch or listen to at your convenience.
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
- Luke 22:19-20
Jesus taught us to remember his death by eating bread and drinking wine, representing his body and blood. We call this simple meal communion. Every Sunday we eat this meal as we remember Jesus’ death and resurrection and look forward to the day he returns. You can participate in this by having some bread and a drink (wine or juice) ready before you join the call.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…
- 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Please don’t feel the need to rush off at the end - we would like to get to know you.
At the end of each service in the building, we drink tea or coffee and eat biscuits. This is an important part of belonging to a church community. We look out for each other and make new friends. While we're meeting together on Zoom, we do this by creating break-out rooms in Zoom where you can talk to others.
