The Bridge

Finding the hope of Jesus in the struggles of our lives

Regular events at the bridge

Sundays

We meet at 4pm every Sunday for an informal service with Sunday school & creche. It lasts about an hour and a half. There's time to chat and pray through what we've heard about Jesus, and the struggles of our lives too. Each week there is hot food provided for all ages after the service.
