There are people from various professions. In general, we are regular everyday people, we don’t claim to be perfect or unique, we just love to be part of our church family.
What should I wear?
…whatever makes you feel comfortable. There is no dress code. You will find many people showing up in Jeans and T-Shirt, others enjoy the opportunity to dress up a little – feel free to choose what’s appropriate for you.
How will I find my way around?
…once you enter the parking lot you can’t miss the main entrance. This leads straight into the main gymnatorium. The bathrooms are located at the back of the building. Feel free to ask our greeters at the door to show you your way around. They will be happy to help you out.
What about my Kids?
…we offer programs for kids ages 0 to 10, run by screened volunteers who are excited to work with children. You can register and sign in your kids at the sign in station on your left where one of our volunteers will be happy to assist you. Your kids will enjoy 75-90 minutes of music, games, activities and interactive lessons. The children are picked up by the parent(s) / guardian after the main service.
Changing tables are located in the bathrooms.
What does the usual Service look like?
…at 10.00 am someone will open up the service, sometimes with a little ice breaker or game. We will then move into a time of praise and worship where a band of 2 to 6 musicians leads us into some songs. Most of the congregation will stand up, some will lift their hands or dance, others will remain seated. There will be announcements and a life-application talk (sermon). Once a month you are welcome to join in a communion meal with us. After the service you can connect with our prayer team if you would like to receive prayer, or stay and meet some nice people over a coffee.
What kind of music is there?
…we sing a blend of contemporary worship songs and always seek to honor God in our music. Depending on the day there will be a band of 2 to 6 musicians, including guitars, base, keys, drums, vocals and more.
Is the venue Wheelchair accessible?
…yes it is. Everything is on ground level without any steps and wide enough for wheelchairs to easily fit through everywhere. You will also find two large bathrooms that are barrier free.
