Our faith is grounded in the historical reality of the man, Jesus of Nazareth. He was a real person who lived 2000 years ago and who stilled a storm with just a word whilst sailing with some other very real people in a boat just like this 1st Century fishing boat. People then started to talk about God being among them and they gave Jesus the name, "Emmanuel". Emmanuel means "God with us" and the people at our church, (real people like teachers, doctors, soldiers, administrators, engineers, shop-keepers, accountants, tradies, students, etc.) chose that name because they have a real, daily experience of Jesus alongside them, helping them do life better. In addition, we believe that he calls all of us to work for transformation in other people's lives helping them do life better and helping our community do better all round. We would love you to come and join us - come and see it work for you!
Alpha Community commences on Tuesday February 6th from 6:30pm. Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet and in our context marks the beginning of things. Alpha Community will be a place where you can begin to belong and especially where you can begin to believe. It will take the shape of and include as its mission the Alpha course. There will be a meal, some worship, a talk, discussion and prayer each week. It’s a great place for you to come and reconnect with God and with His people. It’s also a great place to bring a friend, where all questions are okay.
