About Us

We are a Presbyterian church, which means that we are connected theologically with the Reformation greats like Martin Luther, John Calvin, and John Knox.

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God; that Jesus is the eternal Son of God, the Creator, the Saviour, the coming king, and judge of the world. We believe that there is no other way to have a relationship with God except through Jesus – that he is “the way, the truth and the life.” We believe that this relationship is not based on what we can achieve, but that it is a gift of grace given by God and applied by the Holy Spirit.

Service Style

Our style of service is a mixture of contemporary songs and the classic old hymns. Prayer, reading the Bible and preaching are central elements of our service, and our goal is to make the Good News about Jesus clear and understandable for everyone.


We are a close-knit, family orientated church, with people ranging in age from babies to very senior citizens and all age groups in between. We aim to cater for all age groups as we believe that is what a true, connected family looks like.
