When you arrive, you will be greeted by friendly people who are happy that you chose to visit. Our service normally begins with a word of encouragement or a reading of passage of the Bible. A music team leads the congregation in song both at the beginning and end of the gathering. The sermon, or teaching, is based on the Bible and is designed to help us understand God, who we are, and the world we live in. After the sermon we enter into a time of communion to thank God and remind ourselves of our love and need for Jesus Christ. The gathering usually concludes with a few announcements and a benediction to send people off with a ‘good word’ of encouragement. After the gathering, people often spend time enjoying one another’s company, then frequently go in groups to lunch.
