Activities

Currently, there are many groups that make use of the church’s building and facilities, and many stem from current outreach efforts made by the church. Those who make use of these groups do not necessarily share faith with the Christian church, or other members have other church affiliations elsewhere, but are still very, very welcome as part of the local community.
