Gatherings @ The Rock

Church is a community of faith—a spiritual family, not a Sunday service. But our services, programmes and events are environments that enable us to encourage one another in faith and to equip each other to follow God and His plans for us. You’ll find what’s coming up at The Rock here on this page.

Click here to view this year's tentative calendar of gatherings. Or download our App, available from the App store for iOS or Android .

Be sure to check back regularly and join with us to see God’s Kingdom grow in us and in the world. If you would like more information about our services or programmes than is provided here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
