what's happening

baptism course // 18 & 25 august

Our baptism courses run over two Sunday afternoons, and are designed for those considering baptism, or anyone wanting to know more about what baptism is. There will be absolutely no pressure for you to be baptised following the course, so just come along for a relaxed afternoon of discussion around the Bible!

explaining christianity // begins 26 august

We would love to introduce you to the one person who has changed our lives forever. His name is Jesus and he has promised to give you life to the full. He has transformed the lives of millions of people over the last 2000 years. If you would like to investigate the claim that Jesus is Lord then we would love you to attend a 4 week course called Explaining Christianity.

The dates for the course are as follows:
Week 1: Monday night, 26 August
Week 2: Monday night, 2 September
Week 3: Monday night, 9 September
Week 4: Monday night, 16 September

Each night will will commence at 7:00pm with a dinner. The night will then finish with supper at 8:30pm.

There is plenty of time to ask questions and hear what answers the bible gives us. We believe there is no such thing as a dumb question! Everyone is welcome, no matter what age, or background or religion.

growth night #2 // 29 august

In the last 10-20 years our culture has changed rapidly. We are now post-Christian, post-church and post-reached. And whether we like it or not, we sit on the wrong side of the so-called ‘culture wars.’ We know that we should share Jesus, but the truth is that many of us don’t know where to start.

This is why we are hosting Sam for a free evening of training. He is a husband, father, part-time doctor & evangelist with the City Bible Forum. Last year his book Evangelism In A Skeptical World was released, and it is now Christianity Today’s number 1 book on evangelism.
