1 Peter 5.7 ‘Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you’.
We have a heart to serve the community with prayers for healing and free refreshments. All are welcome, including locals, holiday makers and members of the Church. Come and enjoy a quiet moment and have a chat with friends.
If you have a need, the Tuesday morning team will pray for you in the privacy of the main Church and be assured that only the Lord hears and remembers what is shared.
We have teamed up with United Christian Broadcasters to have volunteers from Lakes Christian Centre answering the UCB Prayerline phones at church once a week and praying with people across the country. As a church that values prayer, we consider it a real privilege to be part of this wonderful ministry.
