We’re a friendly, welcoming church with a heart for the local community and an atmosphere that’s open and inviting.

There’s plenty of parking.

Feel free to arrive a little early to have time to say ‘Hello!’ and become familiar with the facilities.

And make sure you stay around after the service for a delicious country style morning tea.

Services last around an hour and a half and are followed by morning tea.

If you have children in primary school or younger, they are welcome to join in with:

  • Junior Sunday School

Older children are invited to be involved i:

  • Senior Sunday School

Both Junior and Senior Sunday Schools run at the same time as our church service.

There’s a Parent room as well for parents with children aged 0–4 years.

As our guest we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed – there’s no dress code and we welcome you just as you are, regardless of your age, stage or situation.

Alpha Planning

Alpha is an informal time where you can ask your questions about life and faith in a safe, friendly environment.

It begins with an introductory dinner where you can find out more with no pressure and no commitment. Throughout the series of weekly gatherings, you’ll have lots of opportunities to explore life’s big questions, including:

  • What is the point of life?
  • What evidence is there for life after death?
  • What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today?
  • How do we deal with guilt?

Alpha is free to attend; opportunity is available to donate towards the cost of meals.
