Maundy Thursday Musical Devotion

  Miserere Mei Deus Around 1638, Gregorio Allegri composed Miserere Mei Deus (“Have Mercy On Me, God”) specifically for the Maundy Thursday Tenebrae service. The Tenebrae takes place after dark. Over the course of the worship service, the candles are extinguished, leaving the sanctuary in darkness at the very end, symbolising the darkness of the tomb.

Grace Greater Than Sin

  Tower Chimes – April 2024 Recently, considerable effort was put into making sure the church website continues to be safe and secure for making financial donations. Because online threats have only increased over time, safety standards have also evolved.

March 31: His Death Certificate is Our Birth Certificate

  March 31 – Easter Sunday Scripture: Mark 16:1-8 It’s often been said that the Kingdom of God has a way of turning this world on its head; or turning it upside-down. What seems right and appropriate by normal standards is, in the eyes of God, found to be lacking if not outright wrong.
