We hope you enjoyed celebrating Easter this year as much as we did! As the Easter festivities subside (and with it the associated public holiday season), we are reminded that we constantly live our lives in proximity to the empty cross. Which is just another way of saying ‘Gospel Culture’!

One Year On

This weekend we mark the one-year anniversary of the Covid-19 disruption on our Church. It was on 15 March 2020 that we had our last full, unrestricted gathering on a Sunday! In the providence of God we were allowed a significant moment to meet, ‘Lift the Sail’, and head into the uncharted waters of a pandemic.

We are up and running for the year, and excited about our plans as a Church over the next few months, despite being restricted in terms of gatherings. We are very excited about our first sermon series for the year. It’s called Rule of Life: Habits to fortify and form your faith
