What to expect when you visit.
Sunday Morning Worship
We offer a traditional Moravian style service on Sunday mornings at 10am, with hymns and liturgies from the Moravian Book of Worship. Our children have a special teaching time in service before heading off to their classrooms, then a Gospel sermon is preached by the pastor and occasionally a guest speaker.
Communion is offered around eight times during the year, and all professing Christians are welcome to participate.
Several times during the year, a Lovefeast is held. This is when the worshiper is served a mug of coffee and a sweet bun. The lovefeast dates back to 1727 when the early Moravians were befriended by Count Nicholas Von Zinzendorf on his estate in Saxony. At that time, they enjoyed a simple meal, and therefore the tradition has continued for almost 300 years.
