John & Alaine McElroy, Senior Ministers

Welcome to our church! It’s great to have you with us. We are excited to help you discover and strengthen your relationship with God and others.

We’d love to connect with you at our services.  Sunday Mornings at 9.30am in the Sanctuary – we invite you to join us after the service for refreshments and fellowship; and Sunday Nights from 5.00pm in the Cafe for a light meal, worship and equipping in breakout groups. Children are welcome and provided for in both services.

We also have Café Church on Wednesdays, at 11.30am where a free meal is served followed by a foodline.

Our Friday Youth Programme is at 6.30pm in the Upper Room for high schoolers.
