We do not have “formal” membership at our church. Rather, every person who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, is a member of God’s family, and hence a member of our church family. It is the privilege and responsibility of every member to use the gifts God has given them to build up and reach out, including serving on Sundays and financial giving.
To help us “build up each other and reach out to the world”, we have some ministry staff. They are followers of Jesus who are set-aside from normal secular work to lead our church. If you have any questions about Jesus, our church or just life in general, please say hi after church, or arrange to meet up for a coffee during the week.
