Our Sunday services are at 830am, 945am and 1030.
The 8:30am service is an opportunity to meet God in joyful, reflective worship. It includes times of meditation, and sometimes responsive participation or contribution by people in other creative ways. It is a time of discerning together how we may worship God and deepen our faith.
The 9:45am service is a time for all ages to work together with discussion, craft, eating, and fun. It is pretty "non-churchy" and a great way to encounter the God we meet in everyday life.
The service is definitely a little 'unconventional' but we love the variety. We might work together with rocks and sand, try to keep 120 balloons aloft at once, or send our prayers on aeroplanes. With the creativity of those planning worship - and the whole congregation - almost limitless, the service is almost as unpredictable as one might think possible. All except for the fact that we can predict that God is present, and that we are working together as part of the community of God. And we know that when God is present, the time will be meaningful and we will be changed.
At 10:30, there are a few options we run simultaneously. Children from pre-school to Year 2 may choose to attend the Kippax Kids' Sunday Club.
People may choose to come to the Sunday Cafe, or people may choose to attend our 10:30 worship service.
The 10:30am service focuses quite specifically on deepening our faith in response to God. We look in some detail on the Biblical theme for the week, and how it applies to our lives. During this service we specifically and deliberately offer times of prayer for those attending or those on their hearts.
Sunday Cafe is a relaxed time for discussions over a cup of (nice) coffee or other refreshments. (We think it's probably the best coffee around on a Sunday morning, and certainly the best free coffee). Sunday Cafe gives people the chance to discuss things that are going on in their lives, or continue the experience of the 10:30 worship service, or just get to know each other better. Building relationships within the community is an important part of our life together, and part of our worshipping life.
