Communion: We currently do not hand out elements during the service; on Communion Sundays, a two-in-one pack is available at or near the front door, or on a table between the auditorium entrances.

Morning Tea: After the morning service, tea, coffee and biscuits are available. Feel free to stay and have a hot drink and chat with some of our members.
If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, we respectfully ask that you refrain from attending our services; live-streaming is available if you are unable to join us in person.

Children and Youth Programs
Our morning service has a creche available for those that need this, which can be found by going past the toilets, walking straight to the door ahead of you. If it is locked, please let one of the sound/data crew know.
A stream of the audio is fed into this room, adjustible by the knob near the light switch.
Both kids programs start a little while into the service, after the first bracket of songs; with the worship MC usually praying for the children before they leave.
School Grades 1-6
Our Kids Church runs every Sunday morning during school terms, and consist of fun-based learning with a message, craft and games. Children will need to be signed in by a parent or guardian on the form provided, and signed out once the service is over.
This program is currently not running.
School Years 7-12
Our Re-WYRED programs run every Sunday morning during school, and usually consist of more in-depth learning, coupled with some fun and other discussions.
This program is currently not running.
During school holidays children are encouraged to join in the service with their families; our kids and youth programs do not run in the holidays.
If you are unable to join us in-person, or would like to check out our services from home, live-streaming is available each Sunday.
All Morning Services are livestreamed via our website here. Streams start five minutes before the service starts, and sermons are available later.
Evening Services are streamed on request due to lesser demand, and will require a password. Sermons are available afterwards. Communion services, on the third Sunday of the month, due to the nature of being a dinner and shorter-style message, are not livestreamed or recorded.
Am I Welcome?
Of course! Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us, and we encourage and welcome visitors to all of our services.
There is no dress code, so wear what you are comfortable in.
There is no expectation to participate in aspects of the service if you feel uncomfortable doing so.
During the Service
You may wonder what you can expect from a typical service. Our morning service tends to be a more "traditional" service, while our evening service is led more by our young adults and families with pastoral oversight.
AM Service - 9:30am
Countdown to service start will be displayed on the projector; this is more for those streaming at home.
The Service MC will usually give a short introduction, then invite the congregation to stand if able, followed by 2-3 songs.
The Service MC will share relevant announcements, then a time of prayer will be led by the Service MC or another member.
Another song or two will be sung.
A Bible reading will be shared, then one of the pastors or guest speakers will speak for around 25-30 minutes. These are usually part of a series. Past Sermons can be found here.
On the first Sunday of the month, we share in communion. This is a special practice for followers of Jesus, involving a small piece of cracker and juice as symbols of acknowledgement of his death for us. We currently use disposable communion packs, available as you enter the main worship area. You are most welcome to not partake, and we encourage this if you do not share faith in Jesus.
The music team will then close the service with a song.
Morning tea or coffee is usually available after the service.
PM Service - 7:00 pm (Third Sunday of the month, 6:30 pm)
Services follow a similar format to the morning service, but the order of things are more subject to change on a weekly basis. Evening services tend to see more speakers from the membership rather than the pastors.
On the third Sunday of the month, we share in communion. We meet at 6:30pm instead of the usual time, in order to share a dinner together. We currently have members bring food for collective sharing, so don't feel obliged to bring food along. Food intolerances and allergies are catered for and food will be labelled with ingredients.
Our current weekly format sees:
First and second Sundays focused on teaching (Currently from the Gospel of Mark);
The third Sunday is our communion dinner and sharing;
Fourth and fifth Sundays focus on outreach and missions.
