Welcome to our Online Service

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to follow social distancing practices, as laid out by the government and epidemiologists. Due to current Level 3 lockdown restrictions we are unable to meet physically at the church. Therefore, we will continue with our online services. We will update you via WhatsApp if and when anything changes. 

We will keep you informed via the WhatsApp group and other communications. Please ensure that you are a part of this communication through the “Get in touch” button below.

We want you to feel a part of our community so please feel free to contact the pastors directly, or the office email below:

How the service will look:

If you simply follow the flow of this page, you and your family can join in our service. Click on each video to participate in the service. We pray that as you worship together as a family, God will meet with you and make this a special time.

If you have missed previous sermons, they are now at the bottom of the page or available via our youtube page.

Scripture Reading

John 5:19-27(NIV)

19Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.20For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.21For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.22Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son,23that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.25Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.26For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.27And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.
