WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to be welcomed. Some visitors like to engage in conversation, others prefer to just watch and listen. Whatever your preference, we hope you will feel respected and warmly welcomed.
Expect to see people of a variety of ages and backgrounds. The Christian gospel is relevant to all ages and cultures. It is impacting people across a wide variety of cultures today. We welcome both children and adults.
Expect prayer. Most people feel a need to pray at some time in their life. God made us to know him, and prayer is a big part of our relating to God. We usually have one or two people lead us by praying out loud while the rest of us listen and pray silently.
Expect the Bible to be read and explained. Reading from such an old book might seem odd. Yet the Bible claims to be the very word of God. Throughout history, Christians have seen the truth of this claim and today a growing number of people across the world see the Bible’s relevance as their lives are transformed by its message. Feel free to listen, and ask any questions you have afterwards.
Expect singing. Christians tend to sing more than many Australians. We have great news to sing about. We sing a variety of songs. Some may be unfamiliar at first, so feel free to listen or join in as you would like.
Expect NO offering to be collected. There is no offering. We do not ask visitors for money. It may sound unusual, but Christians actually enjoy giving money, so we do provide other ways for regular attenders to give anonymously. This is entirely voluntary. We do not expect visitors to give – we are grateful to have you as our guests.
Expect church to go for around 75 to 90 minutes. Feel free to stay around afterwards for free refreshments, or leave as soon as you would like.
Expect that most people will be dressed fairly casually. You are welcome to wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you have further questions, feel free to contact us. You are welcome to visit us any time.
