Every Sunday evening various speakers come along to teach the good news that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. We spend time singing and often there will be a soloist or someone sharing their testimony in addition to speaker who comes along. All are welcome to come along. The meeting lasts for 1 hour and starts at 7pm.


God made us in his image, with free will to worship him. Just like Adam we have chosen to sin against God – an act of treason punishable by death (Gen 2:17; Rm 6:23). As a result, we were separated from God, and we try to be our own gods, declaring what is right and wrong, and living life by our own standards.

Despite our rebellion, Jesus, who created the world and is God, lovingly came into human history as a man (John 1:14; Rm 1:3; 8:3; Gal 4:4; Philemon 2:7, 8; Col 1:22; 1 Tim 3:16; Heb 2:14; 1 Jn 4:2; 2 Jn 7). He was born of a virgin, (Mt 1:23; Is 7:14) and he lived a life without sin, (Heb 4:15; 1 Pt 2:22; 1 Jn 3:5) though he was tempted in every way as we are he preached that the good news of God’s kingdom, love, promise, forgiveness, and acceptance was fulfilled in him, in both his life and death.. Because of his great love for us, he went to the cross and took on the punishment of death that we justly deserved (Rm 3:25; 1 Jn 2:2).  
Jesus became our substitution, himself taking the place of sinners (1 Cor 15:45–48). When Jesus went to the cross, he willingly took upon himself the sin of the world (Jn 3:16). That means that if you trust him as your Lord and Saviour He went to the cross and took upon himself all your sin—past, present, and future—and that he died in your place, paying your debt to God and purchasing your salvation (Rm 10:9;Mt 10:32; Lk 12:8), your can know forgiveness.
Jesus not only took the punishment for your sin, but he also lived a perfectly righteous life. When you trust in Christ, your sins are forgiven and you are declared righteous by God, the ultimate judge. The righteousness of Christ is attributed to you as if you lived a perfect life. 2 Cor 5:21 tells us this: “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” We are the villains, turned into the adopted, children of God. Martin Luther called this the Great Exchange.
Jesus’ dead body was then laid in a tomb, where he lay buried for three days. On the third day, Jesus rose in victory over Satan, sin, death, demons, and hell (Lk 42:1; Mt 28:1–8; Mk 16:1–8; Jn 20:1) and he ascended into heaven, and today is alive and well (Acts 1:6–11). He is seated on a throne, and he is ruling and reigning over all nations, cultures, philosophies, races, and periods of time. Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead, and those who trust in him will enjoy eternity in his kingdom of heaven forever. Those who do not trust Him will suffer apart from him in the conscious, eternal torments of hell (Rev 21).

He is King of kings and he is Lord of lords (Rev 17:14), and he is ruling and reigning over all people, commanding everyone everywhere to repent. 

God did not need to do this for us, but He did out of love for us “For God so loved the world that he gave his only beggotten Son, that whosoever believes on him should not perish but have everlasting life” John3;16
