Church in the Community

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. (John 15:12)

Children & Young People

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. (3 John 1 v4)


The overall vision of the Pastoral mission of the church is to be a caring, sharing family that supports each other at all times, especially in times of need; a family that holds each other up in prayer and has fellowship together through Jesus Christ.


Worship is about God, not us, but it is a pleasure and privilege. God doesn’t need our worship, he doesn’t wait for His worshippers to remind Him how awesome He is and how desperately they need Him. It’s us who need worship. Although God never changes, when we worship he blesses us and we change.
