We are a group of Bible-believing Christians from all sorts of church backgrounds. We are passionate about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus and that is reflected in our style of worship which is modern, lively, and loud, but is also reflective, quiet, meditative and deep. You can expect us to use our voices and contemporary worship music to give praise to the King of Kings – Jesus Christ, by using multimedia to help us. The teaching from the Bible is relevant and powerful as Gods speaks to us. We expect to be changed to be more like Jesus every time we encounter Him in our lives.
