Weekly Services‎ > ‎

Sunday Morning

Every Sunday we have two services in the morning. The first is at 8:45 and the second is at 10:30.  Both services have the same format and the same message. By offering two service we enable people to take part in the small groups that run concurrent with our services. There is also a full children's program that runs at the same time as our services.  Between the services there is a social time in our "Abundant Loaf" cafe located in the fellowship hall where a free continental breakfast is served. Each service lasts between 60-70 minutes and you will find that we offer a blended-style worship incorporating both contemporary praise/worship songs as well as the old hymns of faith.
