  DNA

DNA is our quarterly meet-and-greet, where you can come and find out more about who we are as a church. Perhaps you have visited a few time and want to know more, or perhaps you have been attending for years and have decided that now is the right time to take the next step. Whatever your reasons, come and meet with the staff and council, fellow visitors and friends to learn about our  vision and values and what makes us tick as a congregation! There’s no pressure to join and sign membership if you attend the  morning, just to enjoy your coffee!

  The Parenting Children Course

The Parenting Children Course for any parents, step-parents, prospective parents, or carers of children age 0-10 years. Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better.

  The Parenting Teenagers Course

The Parenting Teenagers Course is for any parents, step-parents, prospective parents and carers of teens aged 11-18 years. Parents are the main influence in their teenagers’ future. Discovering we are not alone and picking up ideas from other parents can be a big help. Meeting our teenagers deepest needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping develop their emotional health and teaching them how to make good choices takes skill and dedication. Taking time to reflect  on our end goal can help us to build our relationships with our teenagers now.
