  • Awesome Sunday praise and worship. Friendly, honest people of all ages. Riveting messages and a building of antique architectural beauty. The church is the people in it and this is a good, joyful crowd. The Sunday School for children and youth is fabulous too. They have a creche for little babies and manned toddlers play area during Sunday services where the little ones are safely cared for. The Church runs lots of other weekday activities, refer their website.
