Wondering what to expect at church on Sunday?

A warm welcome before the service, a light morning tea afterwards.
church service that expresses our historic Christian faith in Jesus for ordinary people living in today‘s world.
…we have readings from the Bible, prayers, songs, and a sermon, all grounded in God’s word.
Our Sunday School offers age-appropriate learning for primary-aged children during the service.
Our creche offers parents a space to have their little ones minded during the sermon.
 
Starts 9:30am, corner of Clarence and Berega Streets, Howrah.
 

Wondering what “kind” of church we are?

We are a congregation of the Christian Reformed Churches of Australia–a collection of about 60 churches around the country.
In the Tasmanian scene, we’re also involved in The Vision 100 Network. We also share a particularly close friendship with the Presbyterian churches around Hobart.
 

Wondering what we believe?

As a church it is our aim to give Glory to God, through His eternal Son the Lord Jesus Christ, by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Our message is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ alone saves people from sin and death. By the grace of God, we put our faith in Him alone. We regard the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. We seek to be holistic in our Sunday worship, by giving glory and praise to God in our singing, our prayers of thanks and intercession, in our offering, in fellowship with one another and through the encouragement we receive from the preaching, which is based on the Bible.

We serve God with gladness and joy in hearts as we rejoice in the One who has set us on an eternal journey to be with Him.
 

Wondering who will be there on Sunday?

Short answer: lots of different people, from many walks of life. But you can particularly expect to meet our pastor, and some of our elders, too:

Pastor

Bernard Cane grew up in Tassie, studied in Sydney (Moore Theological College), has four young kids and is married to Katie. He loves swimming, coffee… and talking about the good news of Jesus.

Elders

Our elders are Alex Wanders (a teacher), John VanDerNiet (a surveyor), Pieter Tuit (a now-retired Christian minster), and Gary Peterson (living the retirement dream!).
