The church building is also closed until further notice and all pastors & staff will be working from home.

Our leadership team is keeping a close eye on the situation as it continues to develop, and will be meeting regularly to reassess the situation and decide how to proceed.

While the church is closed, we will be providing a live video stream of our full morning service on our website and social media channels, as well as a live audio broadcast over the radio.
