Sundays at 9:30am
Each Sunday the church gathers to participate in the Lord’s Supper. This meeting is a time for believers to remember the Lord Jesus by taking bread and the cup. Bread is a symbol of Jesus’ body that was given (broken) for us. The cup is symbolic of Jesus’ blood that was shed for the remission of our sins and the sealing of the New Testament (Heb 9:14-18.
It is our practice to give time for collective worship where the mean lead in praise and worship by offering a hymn to sing, or sharing a thought from the scriptures to draw hearts to appreciate the lord. Each believer has the honour and privilege to bring their offerings of appreciation and worship before the Lord, (the women doing so in silence (I Cor 14:34, I Tim 2:11). We believe the Holy Spirit guides us in our remembrance and worship and therefore there is no prior arrangement to organize the course of this meeting.
It is important to understand that this meeting is for believers, those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour and are thus born again. It is also important for believers to recognize the solemnity of participating in this meeting. The Bible warns of judgement upon those who participate in an unworthy manner (I Cor 11:27-32). The scriptures ask all believers to examine themselves before they practice in the Lord’s Supper.
Each Sunday an opportunity is given at the Lord’s Supper for each believer in the fellowship to give to the Lord, according as the Lord has prospered (I Cor 16:1-2). This is an expression of worship to the Lord. The collection offerings are handled by the deacons of the assembly under the leadership of the elders. The money is used to support the Lord’s servants at home and abroad, and to maintain the practical expenses of the assembly and its ministries. Financial statements are regularly made available to all who belong to the local fellowship. A financial review is conducted once a year for the entire assembly.
