Map it

Parking is available in MacAlister Street, and at the rear of the building off Bond St.

The front entrance and toilets are wheelchair accessible. You can also use the drop-off area right at the front door for those with mobility challenges, or lots of people to offload!

As you arrive through the glass doors, we meet in the hall on the left. Signage should indicate the way. If you get lost, just ask and we'll be happy to help!

If you cannot join a physical service due to illness, you can join our Zoom live stream. The Live stream is by request, so please contact us.

What happens before the service?

15-20 minutes before the service most people start to arrive, saying g'day to one another and welcoming visitors.

Some people will turn up to church early to spend extra time praying together. Others will be around setting up for the service.

It's best to show up at least a few minutes early to find a seat. You can sit wherever you like!

What happens during the service?

Our service usually goes for about 1.5 hours. It is led by men from the front and includes:

  • Reading from the Bible - we believe it is God's word to us.
  • Singing together to God - It is one way we honour and pray to him.
  • Prayer to God - We believe he wants to hear us and respond to our prayers.
  • Lord's Supper - So we can be reminded, and celebrate, the death of Jesus Christ on our behalf. All Christians are welcome to join in this celebration, even if you're visiting. (A good rule of thumb is if you have been baptised in the name of the Father, Son & Spirit and can confess the Apostles Creed, you're welcome to join!)
  • Preaching/sermon - A teaching time based on a section of the Bible.
  • Baptisms - Sometimes people will undergo a symbolic washing as a sign of belonging to Jesus.
What happens after the service?

People usually stick around and catch-up after the service, have a cup of tea, and generally hang out. Its a time where we can check-in with each other. It's a great opportunity to pray in small groups, have meaningful conversations, and share encouragement.

Sometimes we will organise lunches in the park. But if there's nothing organised, don't let that stop you! Round up a few people and make some lunch plans of your own!
