We are a community of Christians who
gather regularly to worship God, to examine the Scriptures from a Lutheran
perspective and to reflect on their significance for our lives.
As human beings, filled with God's Holy Spirit and trusting in Jesus Christ
as our Saviour, We are sent to care for the whole creation and to bear
witness to God's love for the world by serving, supporting and encouraging
all who are in need.
Worship is the heart of our ministry and
mission. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper at every Sunday service which

around 10:20 a.m.
Sunday School (September-June)
