What will you experience if you visit us on Sundays?
We love praising God together in song – this is a great way to start your day so be sure to arrive on time so you don’t miss out. After the singing, our children go to Sunday School or Crèche if they’re still a toddler.
During this time one or two members of our church fellowship will share a short story about how Jesus came into their lives, and how that experience has changed and healed them. People don’t rehearse what they will say – it is simply their story, told from their heart.
Living our lives according to God’s word is a fundamental part of our life, and we enjoy hearing sound Bible-based ministry from one of our pastors or leaders.
Taking communion together is the highlight of our week, as we remember the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. We sing a hymn while the communion ‘elements’ are distributed, which are a piece of biscuit – representing the broken body of Jesus Christ – and a small cup of grape juice, symbolising the blood that He shed for us on the cross.
At this time we remember that because of His sacrifice, we are able to forgive and be forgiven.
‘…If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from sin.’ 1 John 1 v 7
We are also reminded that He will come again.
‘For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death til He comes.’ 1 Corinthians 11 v 26
If you are uncomfortable or unsure about taking the communion elements, just let them pass by; it is perfectly okay to just observe what is happening.
Spiritual Voice Gifts
The next part of our meeting was a normal part of proceedings in the early Christian church but is not commonly experienced today. The spiritual voice gifts of the Holy Spirit are operated in an orderly way as directed in 1 Corinthians 14: 26 – 40; speaking in tongues, interpretation and prophecy; which are inspired words of encouragement and direction to the church and a sign that God is present among the people to those who know nothing about these things.
If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret… Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. 1 Corinthians 14:27-29
Following this we have a prayer line where people are encouraged to come forward and pray with our pastors and leaders about any difficulties or needs they may have; for healing, to ask for the Holy Spirit, or to pray for others. Visitors are very welcome and encouraged to come forward for prayer.
Those who indicate that they want to commit their lives to Jesus are able to be baptised in our baptism tank (by full immersion) and are encouraged to seek to be filled with God’s Holy Spirit. This is a wonderful and powerful experience and the start of a brand new overcoming life as a child of God.
