9:30am [email protected] congregation
[email protected] is a contemporary service meeting at the Parish Centre. The relaxed style creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all ages. It’s a place where you can belong, and grow in your faith in Jesus. Everyone is welcome!
Church begins at 9:30am with an inclusive time for children and adults, before the children leave for Kids Church.
Kids Church caters for toddlers to year 6, with a program especially designed for each age group, and run by trained and experienced leaders. At the end of the service the children return to the hall for morning tea together, around 10:45am. We also have a space in the hall set apart for the youngest ones if they’d prefer to stay with mum and dad.
[email protected] also has a program called VIVA for youth in school years 7 to 9. It’s a time for them to hang out, read God’s word, pray and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus.
We’d love to welcome you to [email protected]! If you have any questions, or if you’d like to be connected with one of our ministries, please contact Ian Batey or the church office (02 9479 3700 or email).
