Services at COTS

Usual Sundays

9 am

Communion service with contemporary worship and includes a prayer ministry time.

A children’s programme and youth programme run during the service. Refreshments follow.

Everyone is welcome at our biggest service of the day, you’ll find a friendly welcome and something for everyone. Each 4th week we have an All Together Service which involves everyone from youngest to oldest, (no youth or children’s programme) worshipping God together. This service is live-streamed on FB

Vaccine certificates are required in Red and Orange, Masks and social distancing between bubbles.

11 am

Conversation style, join us at a table for coffee/tea, a short talk, lots of discussions. This is an intentional intergenerational service where all stages and ages are included and welcomed.

You don’t need to know anything about Christianity to come, you can bring your own questions, but if you’ve been a Christian a long time then some of the questions will definitely challenge you.

Join us for a communion service with relevant teaching, hymns, an opportunity for prayer following the service, and then morning tea, with the best cakes in the Bay (when levels COVID-19 Protection Framework allows).

Messy Church

Messy church runs from 4pm til 6pm on selected Saturdays during the year in Green level. We have refreshments and games followed by activities and crafts. We then meet together for some fun songs, short teaching time and creative prayer. We share a meal to finish. It is for all the family – not just the kids.

Will be back in 2022 once the levels allow. We have been doing Messy Church Bags while in higher levels. Contact us to book a bag if we are unable to run messy church in our current level.
