Ignite Senior Youth will have a Bonfire at the Picnic Area on Saturday 1st September 2018. The theme is “STAND” inspired by the scripture in Ephesians 6 that says “therefore, put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and STAND your ground on the evil day and having done all, to STAND”.
All Youth, eighteen [18] and above, are invited to join us from 5.00pm – 9.00pm. Please encourage your young ones to attend and keep us in your prayers.

Winter is gone, Summer is here! The School of Discipleship is back with a bang and with wonderful tracks on our theme “TIME TO BUILD” to empower all worshippers with essential principles and skills to be effective in our callings as Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the marketplace and in our community.
The Summer SOD will feature two not-to-be-missed tracks. The SOD starts on Sunday 9th September 2018.
In preparation, please read the book of NEHEMIAH before we start. Further details will be shared next week.

Based on Hebrews 12:1-2, we bring you “The RACE” Singles Conference that will set you on a collision course with the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our Faith – JESUS; and spark an awakening among our generation – It’s a FAITH Revolution.
We invite all the singles/unmarried to come and be part of the move.
Date: 15th September 2018 Time: 8:00 am – 6:00pm
