From Southern Cross Community preschool that accommodates children as young as 2 years old to Path to Life a monthly meeting catering for those with special needs or disabilities.

    We are a church with a social awareness and as well as involvement in thecommunity we are very active supporting missions both those ministering here at home and overseas.
    We also have a direct international interest  in supporting a work based in the slum district of Nairobi, Kenya called Dandora.

    Simon Turpin

    On February 7th we celebrated 14 years of ministry from our minister, Pastor Steve.   

     Our preacher for the day was Simon Turpin the  â€‹General Manager of
     Answers in Genesis [UK]  (pictured left) who preached on
    Adam:the first and the Last
    Babel: the origin and redemption of religion

    We are delighted to declare our stand as a church on the literal interpretation of Genesis 1-11, in an age of so much compromise

    Our Pastor, Rev. Stephen Packham [Pastor Steve] has been with us since 2002. During this time the church has steadily grown. Many new departments have been established enabling those with giftings and abilities to develop and take their place in leadership within the church family.

    The central ministry of the church always revolves around God's Word the Bible with expository preaching Sunday morning and evening and Bible studies that both open up the Scriptures and give a colourful look at it's background.

    Pastor Steve paints a picture in words that helps both those new to the faith and those who have been on the road for some while to understand more clearly God's precious Word to us.

    "So they read distinctly from the book, in the law of God; and they gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading."
    Nehemiah 8:8 [NKJV}
