Every year we hold a very special event to bless the single parents in the community. The parent can get a free haircut, manicure, or massage whilst the children enjoy craft activities or various sports. We also give each family a professional family photo to take home. 

Life Recovery Group

Every week we run a group for those who have struggled with addictions and compulsive behaviours and are looking to grow their faith, support their recovery and share in Christian community.
