Church

Sunday Meeting times

9:30am meetings are a relaxed and informal time of worship featuring contemporary music. Concludes at 10:30am followed by a cuppa and an opportunity to mix and meet new friends.

11:00am meetings feature all the Army is known for…Brass Bands, Songsters and an enthusiastic joy for worshipping the Lord.


Children and Youth

Commencing at 9:30am Sunday Noise! (Kids Church) is for children between the ages of 5 – 12 and includes singing, activities, stories and games designed to help children learn about God and the Bible. For smaller children (0 - 5 years), mainly music takes place at the same time.

Also at 9:30am the Tribe discussion group is for youth between the ages 13 and 17 and operates each Sunday. It explores issues of Christian lifestyle, Salvation Army history and Christian faith.


Small Groups

Meeting together in small groups to discuss and study the Bible, to share with and encourage each other, is an important part of our lives as a Church Community.

There are a number of groups that meet on a regular basis and new members are always welcome. Groups range from six to fifteen in size and suit a range of ages.

If you would like more information on being part of a small group, please contact us.


Prayer

Prayer not only establishes a relationship with God, it is vital to maintaining our relationship with Him. Corporate prayer (times when God's people meet with the intent to pray) is the coming together as the family of God to learn about each other, do things together and share problems with each other. Why Pray? James 5:16 provides an answer. "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results." Why Pray? God says it makes quite an impact. You're welcome to join us.

Each month, we offer an opportunity to meet with friends to pray in a variety of ways, alternating between a Saturday Prayer Breakfast and a Sunday Afternoon Prayer Fellowship Afternoon. For a full list of 2015 dates click here. This page will also be updated throughout the year with suggestions and resources to encourage our prayer life. 


Alpha

The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a non-threatening manner. It consists of a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith. Alpha is open to everyone.

Each evening commences with a meal where participants join in fellowship with each other. After the meal we sit down to watch a video that presents the key concepts of the Christian faith in an engaging manner. After the video we grab a coffee and chat about any questions the video has raised. You can ask anything. Alpha is a place where no questions will be ignored, but openly discussed.

If you would like more information on ALPHA or when the next course will be commencing please contact us.



 

View more on our Beliefs and Doctrine

Doctrine   What this means
     
That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.   God helped good men to speak and write what is in the Bible, so that from it we may learn the way God means us to live.
     
That there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.   There is only one God, and that he is altogether perfect in every way. He is the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things. We should not worship anyone or anything else.
     
That there are three persons in the Godhead - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.   God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one God.
     
That in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.   Jesus is both truly God and truly human: he has both God's nature and our nature
     
That our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.   Our first parents, by their disobedience, lost their sense of God's favour, and came under the power of sin; and because of this we are all inclined to do wrong.
     
That the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death, made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
  On the cross Jesus suffered and died for the sins of everyone, so that whoever wants to may be saved.
     
That repentance towards God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and renewal by the Holy Spirit, are necessary to salvation.   To be saved we must truly be sorry for doing wrong and trust in Jesus; then the Holy Spirit will make us new people.
     
That we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.   Salvation is a free gift from God. It is received when we believe in Jesus; and when we are saved we know it.
     
That continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.   To keep good we trust in Jesus to help us, and we must go on doing as he wants us to do
     
That it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit, soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Saved people are given the chance to be used by God to help him. When they have given themselves to him fully, then can be given power to serve him, and be kept from sinning.
     
In the immortality of the soul; in the resurrection of the body; in the general judgment at the end of the world; in the eternal happiness of the righteous; and in the endless punishment of the wicked.  

When our bodies die we ourselves will go on living in a new and different way. At the end of time Jesus will judge all people. Those who have chosen him to be their Saviour will be happy to live with him as their King, for ever. Those who have not done so will always be unhappy because they chose what separates them from all that is good and lovely
