Sunday Worship

"And let us consider one another
in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together"

 
Sunday Mornings

Sunday, 10:30am

Clifton Community Centre

We meet at 10.30am every Sunday in Clifton Community Centre for morning worship.

We seek to worship God together by singing, praying, and reading and learning from the Bible. The service usually lasts about 1h15m and we enjoy spending time getting to know each other better over a cup of tea afterwards.

 

There is a creche and Sunday school for younger children provided during the second half of the service.

 

There are occasions throughout the year where the timings and locations differ.
