It's exciting to see how fast our church is growing!  Due to this, we are now in the process of purchasing 250 new chairs for our auditorium.  To help with the cost of this, we will be taking up a special offering next Sunday 11th.  We encourage you all to consider what your contribution will be.

Family Camp at Bethany Park

New Foundations and Discipleship Courses Starting Soon
The next intake for our very successful Foundations and Discipleship courses will be coming soon.
The Foundations Course is a great 8 week course for new believers and those who would like a refresher on the foundations of their Christian faith.
The Discipleship Training Course is an 18 week course focused on learning and living a Spirit-filled Christian walk.
If you are interested in attending either of these courses or would just like to find out more about them, please see Pastor Shane Murray.
