What we do at E.C.C. on SundaysWe meet on Sundays to read, hear and discuss the Bible, which is God’s Word through which He speaks to His children. The most vital truth we keep hearing from God's Word is that the only way to be made right with Him, to become His friend instead of His enemy, is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ alone for our salvation. All that we do when we meet as a church family grows out of this reality. Knowing Jesus Christ truly is a life changing relationship. It is a message we long to share with others in our community and in our world.
However, it’s not all listening and discussion. Like any good family with a loving Father, we respond to Him in praise and prayer. We thank Him for everything he does for us and encourage each other to live as He wants us to live. We enjoy singing to the Lord and to one another about His Greatness and Mercy, and we ask Him to bring others into this Family of God as well.
Most of us need and look forward to this weekly time together. That’s why many of us “hang around” after the service, talking together. We hope you will feel welcome to join us. We hold two meetings on Sundays, for Bible teaching, ministry and fellowship. The morning service is at 10:00 a.m. In the evening we meet at 6:00 p.m. The morning meeting is preceded by a regular Sunday School for K - Yr 10 children. During this time there is opportunity for adults to meet separately for prayer. Our Sunday meetings focus on what God says is most important: getting to know Him and make Him known to others.
We try to listen openly, carefully and thoughtfully as the sermon is preached to us. The preaching programme is published at the beginning of each term, so that we have opportunity to read and think about the Bible passage before we attend church. Another help we provide is a printed outline of the message, received as we arrive each Sunday. This can aid concentration as you listen, and is handy for jotting down notes, which may be referred to later.
During our morning services we regularly have a kid’s talk, which usually ties in with the sermon subject. After the kid's talk, there is a preschool crèche where children can be minded during the message.
