Join together for a time of quiet prayer, singing, anointing and individual prayers for our lives, our church and our world.

ALL SAINTS DAY WORSHIP SERVICE ON NOVEMBER 1st Join us at 6:30, on Thursday, November 1st as we remember those we have loved and lost, and rejoice together over the gift of God's resurrection promises. We'll sing, pray and listen to God's word, and have a special opportunity for you to name the loved ones whose death has been a source of grief for you. A simple meal will be offered at 6pm.

“If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.” - Romans 14:8-9
