The Church is a group of friends whose lives have been changed by the love of Jesus
- Come along and make new friends and discover Jesus for yourself. We are not perfect
but Jesus is.
Sunday morning services, which are family services, start at 10:45am.
We are all together in church for the first part of our worship and then, on most
Sundays, any young people go to their room for their own activities. Parents of toddlers
are welcome to go with them if they wish. Tea, coffee and squash are served after
the services. You are welcome.
We seek to offer and extend the love of God in Jesus Christ, spiritually, emotionally,
supportively and caringly to all people and by doing so to make a positive difference
to our neighbourhood and the wider world.
Jesus teaches about inner purity
Some Pharisees and teachers of religious law now arrived from Jerusalem to see Jesus.
They asked him, “Why do your disciples disobey our age-old tradition? For they ignore
our tradition of ceremonial hand washing before they eat.”
Jesus replied, “And why do you, by your traditions, violate the direct commandments
of God? For instance, God says, ‘Honour your father and mother,’ and ‘Anyone who
speaks disrespectfully of father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say it
is all right for people to say to their parents, ‘Sorry, I can’t help you. For I
have vowed to give to God what I would have given to you.’ In this way, you say
they don’t need to honour their parents. And so you cancel the word of God for the
sake of your own tradition. You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied
about you, for he wrote,
‘These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship
is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.’” Matthew
