Contemporary Worship

As an evangelical charismatic church, contemporary worship forms an important part of our Sunday services.  Our worship is band-led, apart from one traditional hymn played on the organ at the start of the service. We expect to hear from God during our worship and prayer times, and regularly share prophetic words of encouragement and testimonies of God at work in people’s lives.
