We have an informal worship service at 10.00 am.
It begins with prayer, followed by praise and worship, including both modern and traditional music. We announce upcoming activities and have a short children’s message after which the children are supervised with an activity at the back of the church. There is also a crèche facility available.
The members of the congregation are involved with sharing a message or testimony, utilising the variety of gifts God has blessed us with. We are blessed with gifted musicians and singers who lead on a rostered basis.
Our services which include Bible-based preaching, are Spirit-led and we actively encourage freedom of worship through music, words of knowledge and times of quiet reverence to our Lord. We continue to have fellowship over a cup of tea and coffee after the service.
Communion is celebrated on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. In our church, we welcome all who love the Lord to celebrate communion with us. We also have helpers who serve home communion to those who are not able to be at the Sunday gathering.
We believe prayer is a vital and necessary ingredient in our walk with God and we meet on regular occasions to seek God’s will and direction for our lives.
Prayer is one of the wonderful gifts God has given us. It is a way in which God blesses, sustains and enriches us.
Prayer is the means by which we open our hearts to God, deepen our relationship with God and have a better understanding of God’s will.
Prayer changes us as we humble ourselves and prayer moves us to want to listen to what God wants.
Prayer opens us to the spiritual dimension of life.
Prayer can bring peace to the deep places of our lives and strengthen us with the deep assurance of faith.
Prayer is foundational to everything we do.

Home groups are small groups that meet in homes and are a vital part of our Church life here at St. Pauls
This is where a small group of people meet to study the Bible together, to pray, encourage, learn, grow, support, care for each other, and sometimes have a good feed! There are daytime and evening groups meeting weekly. The groups are often helped by the use of resources that are available and which includes people to the Christian faith.
The aim is to grow in being disciples of Jesus, and to encourage one another on the journey together. It is a great way to make new friends. Some of these groups keep going all year round. We also have groups that get together because the members share a common interest – which is a wonderful way to get to meet other like-minded people.
