We hold weekly services in the Chapel of the Waves – entrance off Collingwood Street – at 10.00am on most Sundays. Leadership of these services is given by a variety of visiting preachers, as well as our co-ordinating minister. There is a variety of styles from traditional to more experimental and contemporary. Most first Sundays of the month we hold a communion service. On 5th Sundays of the month we combine with other eastern parishes and some of these services are held in other locations. Details on these alternative locations will be posted where needed on this site.
We are called by Jesus to be a community that is a life-giving presence in the community. Jesus’ metaphors of being yeast and salt reflect well this mission. For us this involves offering practical ministry and hospitality that is caring, compassionate and hopeful, and embodies Christ in our neighbourhood. We place great importance on our relationships at street level, and with other community groups and organisations.
