We would love you to join us for our Sunday morning service starting at 9:30AM.
You will be welcomed at the door and guided to join our congregation in the main auditorium, with special seating reserved for families in our Children’s Corner. In our morning service we will share in prayer, worship and reading the bible together. During the teaching portion of our service, pre-primary aged children are welcome to join our Creche, and primary aged children can join Children’s Church for games, craft and interactive teaching. After the service, we encourage you to share in a free morning tea and fellowship in our hall.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Our Sunday 9:30am and 7:00pm services are held in our Church Auditorium. This is a space for our congregation to join together in communal worship, prayer and bible teaching. We have a Children’s Corner reserved in the Church Auditorium for families, and our Parents Retreat room also adjoins our Auditorium with a window and speaker system to allow families to listen to our services with greater privacy.
Our children enjoy a custom-built Children’s Space for their Sunday morning Children’s Church, and Wednesday PlayTime sessions. This space includes an area for games, craft, a kitchenette and a quiet babies’ room. The Children’s Space also opens onto a playground and large grassed area for outdoor games.
Our Parents Retreat is a sanctuary available on Sundays for families to utilise. This space includes comfortable couches, a range of toys, and an area for parents to feed and change their children. Our Creche is also held in the Parents Retreat during our Sunday Morning service for pre-primary aged children. Parents are able to see into the Church Auditorium from the Parents Retreat through a tinted window, and can choose to listen to the service in the Auditorium through a speaker system. We value our families and prioritise a space reserved for them to care for their children while still feeling part of the service.
Our Church Hall is a wonderful meeting area, where we host Sunday Morning Tea. This space is also utilised for our Youth Group, Messy Church, Craft Group, and other community activities. Our Church Hall and adjoining commercial Kitchen have recently been renovated to allow for sound-proofing, which means there is plenty of space for our young people to play active games in this area!
Adjoining our Children’s Space is a large playgound with swings, a sandpit and a fully enclosed grass area. Children are welcome to use this space, and particularly love to stretch their legs on a Sunday morning after our church service.
Our Ministry Centre is located next to our main church building. This Centre contains our church offices, and a room available for ministry meetings and bible studies.
