The 6pm Service will continue to meet in our Cafe for 2023.
At 6pm each Sunday, we hold a contemporary worship service in the cafe, located onsite, the entrance is opposite the main doors to the church. The service aims to have a relaxed atmosphere and we welcome questions and discussion afterwards. This service is designed for young adults and we try to make it accessible to those who are new to or just finding their way into trust in Jesus Christ.
This is a small gathering which we also use as a training ground for formation and discipleship. We will frequently try things that you wouldn't attempt in a larger gathering - like giving up our regular worship format for six weeks to run a course on prayer or spending significant time in prayer during the worship time. We don't want any spiritual gifts left behind!
See the program for this month below:
The Shema - September and October
“Hear O Israel, the LORD is our God, the LORD is one, and as for you, you shall love the LORD your God with all of your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5
As an observant Jew, Jesus recited this sacred Jewish creed, known as the Shema, every day upon waking and retiring. Jesus was clear about spiritual formation and expressed his view by transforming this creed, adding another Old Testament text to extend its meaning to include love for others. If we consider Jesus to be the Master on the spiritual life, we do well to meditate on the prayer he loved and was formed by.
For six weeks we will ruminate on this ancient creed of Judaism, focusing on one key word at a time.
