Eternal God,

grant it that unity which only your Spirit can give,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.

You will find with us friendship, acceptance and caring.

Sunday by Sunday we gather as a Church Family of Anglicans to worship God, Father, Son & Holy Spirit, knowing this makes a difference in our lives, and praying that that difference will make a difference in our community. We welcome all who would come to join with us in worship. As well as Sunday worship, we offer the Pastoral Services of Baptism, Marriage, and Funerals. We have regular groups including Bible Study, Mothers' Union and a Friendship Group where anyone is welcome to call in for morning tea and a chat.

Keep us Lord, under the shadow of your mercy.

Be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may all find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
