Morning services

As we spend time in Ephesians this year we will discover not only our place but our purpose in God's plan to transform our lives and our world.

Discovering our place in the world is worthless unless we live out our place with purpose. Eph 3 helps us to discover what it could mean to live out our purpose.

Join us at either 8 am or 10 am at Westville or 10 am at Pinetown.

And if you really can't join us live you can find us live on Facebook at 8 am or 10 am on YouTube Live.

Evening service

Jeremiah 29:11 says:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Schools are back and life is in full swing. Most of us have our own goals and plans that we are striving to work towards in 2023.

Join us for a two-week series as we look at God’s promise of hope in the plans He has for us and the vision set for the future of our evening service.

Join us at 5:30 pm.

From 8 am on Saturday, 28 January to 8 am on Sunday, 29 January we will be having 24 hours of prayer.

An interactive, guided prayer room will be set up at the church. We want to make sure that there are people praying at the church for the whole 24 hours.

We will be praying for the year ahead that we will be transformed individuals in a transformed church living in a transformed community.

Sign up for at least one hour (more if you can manage) so that the prayer room has people praying for 24 hours non-stop.

We will have extra security at the church through the night to help you feel safe.
