We hold 2 Sunday worship services - at 9 AM and 11 AM.
Both services have more or less the same content (e.g. the same songs, prayers & sermon).
We enjoy singing both traditional and modern hymns and songs and have some talented musicians.
We place a strong emphasis on the Word of God and our pastor is committed to systematic, biblical (expository) preaching. "Expository" preaching is sometimes topical but more often it is simply seeking to open up a passage in the Bible, explaining the text, seeking to illustrate it & then apply it to our everyday life & context. Most of our Sunday messages are recorded (audio and video) and uploaded to this website.
Our main services are all in English but we have simultaneous translation into Chinese and Japanese via a headset system for those who find this helpful.
Each Sunday we celebrate communion remembering the Lord’s sacrifice on the Cross for us and looking forward to His return in glory. Communion is held alternatively, one week at the 9 AM service & the next week at the 11 AM service.
Once a month (usually on the third Friday evening) we hold a Chinese language worship service. At this service we have translation into English for those needing it.
