Youth Alpha is a globally recognized interactive small-group program designed specifically for young people that freely explores what the Christian faith is all about. Alpha runs in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes all around the world. You can check it out for yourself at alpha.org. Typically Alpha consists of seven to ten sessions, and includes food, a short talk, and discussion time where you can share your thoughts.

Throughout term 3 we will be running this exciting series and we would love to have you along for the ride. It will be open to all young people who want to explore the Christian faith and what it means for them. We will be meeting from 5pm to 6.45pm on a Friday night at church before DiG. Call Peter & Carlie Chapman on 4234 1044 if you would like to know more.

Award winning Canadian singer/songwriter, Elizabeth Deveau will be leading us in worship at our 5.30pm Evening Service this Sunday night.

This will be a great opportunity to spend time with God alongside an internationally recognised worship leader. Elizabeth’s ministry is scripturally grounded, and her music speaks intimately into the hearts and souls of those who thirst. Elizabeth’s music is more than a mere collection of songs, rather they are vessels of hope and comfort.

As always, a kids club and creche is provided, and a yummy dinner follows the service.

Celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ with us this Easter at one or more of our creative worship services:

  • Maundy Thursday – 7pm: A candlelit communion service remembering the last supper Jesus had with his disciples. The service concludes with a Tenebrae mediation – a series of seven bible readings during which the sanctuary grows darker reflecting the declining loyalty of the disciples during Jesus’ arrest, cricifixion and death
  • Good Friday – 9am: A sombre yet creative worship experience remembering the death of Christ.
  • Easter Sunday – 9am & 5.30pm: Both services will be joyous times of celebrating Jesus’ resurrection.

Harvest Festival – 9am Sunday 16th March

Harvest Festival - 9am Sunday 16th March

Although most of us no longer live off the land, we can still thank God for his bountiful provision to us via this wonderful long-standing tradition of celebrating the ‘Harvest’.

This year both Sunday services will come together for a combined service at 9am in the stone church (there will be no 5.30pm service that Sunday). Up the front we will create an instillation of canned and other non-perishable food items bought from home. As an act of thanksgiving these items will later be donated to Wollongong Mission’s meals program for the needy. Please come along armed with a contribution from your pantry ready to add to the stockpile.
