One Service Next Sunday 10 am
Next Sunday is a fifth Sunday and we will be celebrating together at 10 am.  After the service we encourage you to invite someone to your home for a meal or afternoon tea and practise generous hospitality together.  So who will you invite?

Cursillo Weekends

Cursillo is a movement of the Church, with its own method that helps Christians learn and live what is fundamental to being a Christian. And having done that, to help these same Christians discover and live out a personal vocation.  

The three day weekends are an opportunity to live for a short time in Christian community, distancing yourself from the pressures of the outside world.
