Sunday Mornings

“Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law”  – Deuteronomy 31:12 – 13

The people of God have been gathering together for thousands of years – from the time of Moses until now! Throughout the Christian Church Sunday mornings are ‘little Easters’ as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Indeed, at Ascension Sundays are ‘prime time’ as we gather from areas throughout the city, worship and fellowship together, and welcome newcomers who join us.

We need a large cohort each Sunday morning to support many different areas of ministry. If you would like to explore any of these ministry teams further, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

  • Ushers: This team distributes bulletins, takes offering and has other logistical duties during worship series.
