* Holy Communion is a special activity started by Jesus Christ (see Mark 14.22-24), and which involves the symbolic sharing of bread and wine in memory of his body broken and blood shed for us on the cross - here he lovingly offers forgiveness of sins and salvation to all (see 'Confirmation' under 'Church Life')

We have a sermon series in the morning. The same sermon, with usually the same preacher, is given at the two main morning services and forms the basis for the Life Group material used that week.
