We are currently gathering both onsite and online.

Onsite Gatherings
We will be holding onsite gatherings at our Lyttelton St site at 10.00am and 7.00pm.

Helping Keep You Safe
We still want to follow our principle of being protective during this time, doing all we can to protect our vulnerable from this virus. If you feel unwell, including mild cold symptoms, please don’t come onsite. Get in touch with us at and let us know if there’s any way we can support you.

Online Gathering
If you don’t feel ready to return onsite, or you’d prefer to stay online, check out our online gatherings here.

Our key principles at this time are:
Personal | Proactive | Protective | Prayerful
