Sunday Worship

  • We meet Sunday mornings to worship God and encourage one another in our Christian walk.
  • Our service style is traditional, but not too formal.
  • Our music is a mix of hymns and classic choruses.
  • Our Bible teaching is drawn from a variety of Old and New Testament texts.
  • We celebrate Communion every week. Our table is ‘open’ – if you love Jesus please join with us.

About Us

  • The name, Church of Christ, LIFE AND ADVENT, reflects our belief that eternal life is found only in Jesus Christ, in his death for our sins, in his rising again, and particularly in the hope of his coming again.
