Welcome, we are glad you’re here!


To see lives transformed through

Jesus Christ to the Glory of God.


We believe Jesus is the most significant person in history and is vital for our lives today and into eternity.

We believe that Jesus is the only hope for the forgiveness of our sins. He came to bring us life to the full. We enjoy this now as a community of people from all nations. We enjoy relationship with God now and beyond death into the future. As you encounter Jesus we believe that your life will never be the same again.

If you would like to investigate the claim that Jesus is Lord then we would love you to attend a 4 week course called ‘Explaining Christianity’. Everyone is welcome, no matter what age, or background or religion.

A Story of a Prodigal Son

Mike Raiter passed on this story to me a couple of years ago that touches on a key element of the story of the prodigal son. There was a man sitting on the pavement beside the bus stop – he was unshaven his shoes were old and worn his shoulders were slumped 
he looked like what he was: a homeless tramp who spent the last night sleeping under a railway arch. He sat there oblivious to people’s disapproving stares and thought back 20 years to when he lived in the little red-brick house just around the corner. He wasn’t even sure if the house would still be there. Maybe they’d bulldozed it years ago. He remembers riding his bike up the path of the house to the front door and he remembers the bougainvillea climbing up the walls. That was 20 years ago. 10 years later the bike had become a motor cycle and he’d got in with the wrong crowd. The pub had become more of a home than his red-brick house and the debts had piled up. The day he’d gone home to ask his parents for a loan the house had been empty and he knew exactly where Dad kept the money so he just helped himself. That was the last time he’d seen them. He hadn’t wanted to go home after that and they’d lost track of him. They knew nothing of his years of wandering or of the prison sentence. Yet while being locked up in the cell he often thought about them. Once he was free, he would love to see them again... read more

Are You A Prayer Wimp?

I came across this article that I thought you may find helpful. “Hello, my name is Max. I’m a recovering prayer wimp. I doze off when I pray. My thoughts zig, then zag, then zig again. Distractions swarm like gnats on a summer night. If attention deficit disorder applies to prayer, I am afflicted. When I pray, I think of a thousand things I need to do. I forget the one thing I set out to do: pray. Can you relate? It’s not that we don’t pray at all. We all pray some. But wouldn’t we all like to pray … More? Better? Deeper? Stronger? With more fire, faith, or fervency? We aren’t the first to struggle. The sign-up sheet for Prayer 101 contains some familiar names: the apostles John, James, Andrew, and Peter. When one of Jesus’ disciples requested, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1 NIV), none of the others objected. No one walked away saying, “Hey, I have prayer figured out”. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance. In fact, the only tutorial they ever requested was on prayer. They could have asked for instructions on many topics: bread multiplying, speech making, storm stilling. Jesus raised people from the dead. But a “How to Vacate the Cemetery” seminar? His followers never called for one. But they did want him to do this: “Lord, teach us to pray.” When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer (Luke 11:1–4). Could you use... read more

A Transformed Life from “Union With Christ” Series

One sister in Christ from MBM writes how the “Union with Christ” series helped her overcome her suicidal thoughts. “This series has transformed my life in every aspect. I can see so clearly all the steps God has taken to get me here and I am thankful. Part 1: “Before time” was so personal as I never gave this much thought, even though I have always been a believer my choices were never in line with God’s, so to sit and hear that He chose me even before the world was created was completely mind blowing. With being adopted and abused growing up the thought of someone truly loving me and wanting me was never a relief… Part 4: “In the fullness of time” study I was really empowered to do what we as believers are called to do and that is share the gospel, not from my perspective but God’s. Jesus gives us everything we need. He personally intervenes and personally helps us. When doubt or struggle appear we are to take them to Him in prayer and He will help us. Sin, death and the devil have all been conquered and Jesus has saved us once and for all. Part 5: “Now in the last days” has been a favourite one of mine. Learning how sin was a master over me but not anymore is incredible. I never really realised it. As Jesus selflessly sacrificed His life, now we have been adopted by God into His Kingdom where we are blessed with grace and life. My favourite analogy is the father carrying the child, because Jesus carries... read more
