Breaking of Bread and Workship Service
Our Worship Service is held every Sunday from 9:30 am to 10:30 am in an unstructured manner. During this time we seek to remember the saving work the Lord Jesus accomplished on the Cross by celebrating the Lord’s Supper – the breaking of bread and sharing of wine – as he instructed [1 CR 11:24-26].
The service is also spent in personal reflection, prayer and the sharing of hymns and thoughts from the Word of God. Any brother, particularly those who are spiritually gifted in public ministry of the Word, are encouraged to take part inaudible worship. We seek to afford those brothers who are gifted in this way the opportunity to exercise this talent for public speaking.
Family Service and Sunday School
After a morning tea break, we come together again from 11:00 am in a more family-friendly format to sing hymns and choruses and provide an opportunity for our younger members to participate. Our Sunday School programme is an integral part of this service, catering for primary to high school-aged youth. Each class is fully supervised and lessons are grounded in Biblical principles.While the children are enjoying their classes, parents and adults are welcome to stay to hear the Word preached by each week’s speaker. See the calendar for details on upcoming sermon topics, or visit our library to download past sermons.
Starting at 6:00 pm, and run in a similar format to our Family Service (but without Sunday School), our Evening Service is perfect for those who can’t make the earlier meetings, or who just want to continue worshipping and hearing the Word preached in the company of other believers. We’re often privileged to host a range of guest speakers, topics, DVD screenings and activities such as sausage sizzles unique to this time slot, so don’t miss out – we’d love to see you!
Prayer and Bible Study
Prayer is a relationship, wherein we humbly communicate, worship, and sincerely seek God’s face. we know that in prayer, God hears us, loves us and will respond, though not always in a manner we may expect or desire. Prayer can encompass confession, praise, adoration, supplication, intercession and more. Our prayers must come often and regularly, not from legalistic duty, but from a humble heart, realising our dependence on God in every aspect of our lives.
Prayer is pivotal and essential. It is meant to line us up in His will and with His empowerment. Being faithful in prayer is the essential mechanism for reaching others with the faith. Nothing of value can accrue in you or through you without prayer.
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us” – 1 John 5:14
The Bible is the only source of knowledge of how to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the only source of divine revelation and power that can sustain you as a Christian in your walk with God. We should read and study the Bible because it is God’s Word to us. The Bible is literally “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God’s very words to us.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loves me not keeps not my sayings; and the word which you hear is not mine, but the Father which sent me” – John 14:23
Know Your Bible (KYB)
KYB is our women’s study group that meets on Thursdays. KYB studies are used in over 2,000 groups across Australia and are provided by CWCI Australia.
Studies look at a different theme or Biblical book each Term, with breaks over the school holidays. The aim is to deepen and enrich the spiritual lives of women and to build them up in their Christian faith through Bible-based teaching.
Contact us for more information about meeting times and studies, or visit the KYB website for more on the program.

Jesus set the supreme example of surrender and submission to the Father’s will when he prayed for God to spare him from dying on the cross. Because he was fully human, he was fearful and reluctant to experience the agony of the crucifixion. Because he was fully God, he could have refused to die, but instead, in humble trust and submission, he prayed, “may your will be done.”
On the surface, death by crucifixion seemed to end Christ’s ministry. In reality, his death on the cross paved the way for countless believers to receive eternal life by believing in his death and resurrection.
