Worship Gathering

Everything we do when we gather as the body of Christ is worship. A typical Sunday morning service begins with 20-30 minutes of corporate singing. Other worship elements include prayer, the public reading of Scripture, mutual encouragement and fellowship, celebration of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.

When we worship by singing, you will notice that we employ both traditional hymns and more contemporary songs. There is also a great measure of freedom in the way people express their love for God and gratitude for all he has done. Some will sit quietly and meditate. Most will stand and sing every song. Quite a few will raise their hands, while others will keep them at their side. In any and every case, regardless of the mood or atmosphere of the service, our aim is to glorify God by enjoying him and all that he is for us in Jesus. 

Following this time of singing, most of the service is devoted to the preaching and teaching of God’s inspired Word. We believe in the importance of expositional preaching, that is to say, the passionate explanation and relevant application of Holy Scripture, verse by verse, book by book, with a very occasional topical study.
