Current Series: Why Am I Here? – Sundays @ 8:30am & 10:30am
What am I supposed to do with my life? What is my purpose on earth? Why am I even here? In this series we will answer some of humanity’smost common questions and talk about our God-given purpose. We allhave a call to be salt and light in the Kingdom of Christ, but we can’t glow if we don’t grow and that happens when we spend time with Jesus. We are all called to ministry. We have all been given different gifts, and we all have something God is calling us to do in His kingdom. How do we find out what our ministry calling is and minister in that calling no matter what our vocation is? In this series we will discover how to draw near to God and in doing so, find out the awesome calling God has for us.
New Series: Spirit – Starts Sun 10 June @ 8:30am & 10:30am
This series provides a timeless message to all believers who live in times of insecurity in a localised and global sense. Sometimes our lives appear to be out of control and our destinies seem to be determined by others but the message of Acts is that the Spirit is in charge and His chief desire is for relationship – to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. Join us for this 5 part series where we will delve into the Book of Acts and gain an appreciation of the Spirit as a complex, wise, creative, powerful, and personal member of the Godhead who is sent to equip, empower, affirm, inspire, gift, and ultimately transform us.

This winter, do not stay out in the “cold”, but find a group in which you can forge friendships and experience authentic Christian community!
