Jesus is King (the Gospel of Matthew)

As we focus on relentlessly pursuing Jesus this year we want to immerse ourselves in his life,
teaching and miracles. Reading through Matthew’s will help us prepare for Easter and how Jesus’
death and resurrection changes everything.

The Transformation Trek: relentlessly pursue Jesus

Are you ready to join us on an exciting journey of discovery and growth in your faith? The Transformation Trek is a series of practices and rhythms of life that will help you explore, grow, and connect with others on this journey with Jesus. We’ll be looking at Jesus’ character and teachings, aiming for alignment of heart, mind and action with his life.

Our focus for 2024

Our faith isn’t perfect. We haven’t achieved everything. We are still a work in progress. Rather than resting on the past or holding on to what we have, let’s put everything on the line again for Jesus.

This year our focus is on relentlessly pursuing Jesus and making time for friendship.

Will you put everything on the line for Jesus this year?

Kids & youth programs

We have fun, safe and encouraging programs for the young people in your life.
