In North America, farmers usually build fences around their properties to keep their animals in. In parts of Australia, where land tracts are large, a farmer has no fence but digs a well in the middle of his land, and the animals never stray too far from the precious water, and other animals come there to drink too. Some churches are “fence” churches, with barriers sorting out “who’s in and who’s out”. We want to be a “well” church where anyone who is thirsty is welcome, and we don’t worry much about “who’s in and who’s out”. We think of church membership as being a fence that sorts out who’s in and who’s out, so we intentionally downplay church membership. We have no idea who is a member and who isn’t, and quite frankly don’t care. Anyone who is interested can drink at our well and be part of our family and be involved and take leadership roles in what we do.

Service Times

Our service begins @ 10:30am-ish.  We are primarily a spiritual family. The family is not always on time. There is lots of time to grab a cup of coffee and chat with friends before the service begins.
