Thank you for dying on the Cross, paying the price for all that I have done wrong.

I am ready to receive your gift of eternal life.

Please come into my heart and into my life. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Saviour. Show me the reality of who You are.

I pray all this in Your name,

Find a Church

The Bible tells us we need people around us to journey with us, comfort us when we’re down, teach us, hold us accountable, and spur us to love others and do good deeds.

A church community provides this fellowship, especially when you join what is known as a life group or cell group – small groups of like-minded believers, usually in the same life stage.

Take time to find a church and small group that you feel comfortable in, and where you feel you can learn and grow in your faith.
