This Sunday 19 April is Cafe Church, our family-friendly service which starts at 9.30 am with a shared breakfast/morning tea, then the service at 10am. This month we’ll be talking about the resurrection. Should be some interesting discussion!

Cafe Church is held on the third Sunday of each month, and has a focus on discussion and interaction. Toast, cereal and drinks are provided, but you are very welcome to bring a plate of something tastier to share if you would like!

Movie Night & Shared Dinner 6pm 17 AprilPaddington Bear Movie (medium)

Don’t forget Movie Night is coming up on Friday 17 April.We’ll be showing ‘Paddington’, a family movie that’s just come out on DVD today! I’m told it’s a movie that all ages enjoy.

We’d love to see you for a shared meal to start the evening, before we settle down to enjoy the movie on our big screen. Please bring enough food for all your family so we have enough to go around. I’m sure we’ll come up with a lovely spread between us!

We’d appreciate a gold coin donation (maximum $5/family) to cover costs, as we have to pay for a copyright license to be allowed to show movies publicly.

Shared dinner starts 6pm, movie at 7pm.
