Worship Services

We believe God is present in our worship services as we listen to the Bible, pray and engage in dialogue with all the issues of life.  Worship is joyous, sad, solemn, glad, full of life and tells the stories of God’s presence in the midst of people’s lives. Our worship services are diverse in style, catering for all ages.

The Christian seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost are each celebrated. Thanksgiving for the bounty of harvest is given every year. We believe God is active in our lives in numerous ways and we share these wide-ranging involvements on Sunday mornings.

Special Events

Events in people’s lives are rightly great opportunities for sharing in worship together with God.  The three main ones are:

  • Baptism is a celebration of a child’s or adult’s life in the light of God’s gifts to that person and a committed acceptance to lead a Christian life.   Sometimes when a baby is born a service of thanksgiving to God is more appropriate, without the stronger commitment of baptism.
  • Marriage is a Christian service of love.  Wedding services can be conducted by our minister in the church or another venue by agreement. With planning we ensure that the day is an enjoyable and special occasion.
  • Funerals are a time of sadness and hope.  Often they feature a thanksgiving for the person’s life. A Christian funeral is full of the hope given by God who lives forever, as shown by the rising of Jesus Christ. Services can be in the church, the Funeral Director’s Chapel or elsewhere.
We also like to share in other significant events in people’s lives – recommittal of wedding vows, interment of ashes, confirmation, and many more.

Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals by arrangement  – please contact the church office.

Aged Care Worship

We lead worship services at Wharparilla (Cunningham Downs), and BUPA aged care homes for elderly people who are unable to attend regular worship. Currently, services are held once a month in some locations, and we look forward to resuming with others when restrictions are lifted.

For Children

‘Trailblazers’ is our children’s ‘Sunday School’ program. They are led in various activities (crafts, cooking, singing, etc.) that help them learn and understand about God and His love for them
