Sunday Morning Service

Link here to read about the Sunday Morning Service.

Sunday Night 5:30pm

Each Sunday night during school terms, an informal meeting is held at the church at 5:30pm.
At this gathering, we may discuss the morning sermon, sing songs, learn new songs, watch Bible teaching material from DVDs, and pray. It is a time when questions about the Bible or about Christianity can be raised in an informal and non-threatening way.
Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting which lasts for one hour. We encourage young people and back-packers to attend.

Bible Study

This church ‘small group’ consists of people interested in studying the Bible. This Bible study is open to all, and more are most welcome to attend.
The usual program is to watch a 20-25 minute video lecture, discuss its content, and follow with a relevant study directly from the Scriptures. The video and study together take about 90 minutes to complete.
The Bible Study is held in the Church Hall at 1:00pm on most Tuesdays, unless circumstances require a change.
For further information, or to confirm meeting date/s, please phone Peter or Carol on 0412 900 451, or call 07 4683 6349 and leave a message. We will return your call as soon as possible.
