8.30am – A relaxed, contemporary service, musically led by our worship team, with Sunday School and Youth.

The church has a great team of volunteer teachers who work with our children from age 2 up to grade 7 during the 8.30am service.

“Children of all ages are most welcome in all our services but we also have a parents room available with a sound and video link to the service if you’d like to give very busy kids more space to run.”

Projects and events

The beautiful view from The Upper Room coffee shop.

The Upper Room was launched on October 27, 2013.

The project is multi-faceted:

  • A non-profit coffee shop – cappuccinos and cake. Profits from the coffee shop are given to community empowerment projects
  • A public face for our Khanyisa project, which aims to give poor communities dignity through education, job-creation and empowerment programmes
  • A Christian bookshop with a focus on spirituality books – prayer, formation, etc.

These will be open on Tuesday to Friday from 7.30am to 1pm on the church property.


In a very unsettling passage of Scripture, Jesus separates the sheep from the goats on the basis of the way in which they respond to poor and vulnerable people (Matthew 25:31-46).

“We all want to make a difference and to help where we can, but where to start? Often the well-meaning response of the church is charity – collecting money or goods to help the needy.”

Khanyisa (meaning to bring light) aims to equip and empower through creating jobs, mentoring and developing skills in partnership with local communities.

Contact Rev Kym Bishop through the church office for more about Khanyisa or to get on board with something which the church believes is going to give hope and dignity to many in the local community.
