Our Sunday services start with prayer half an hour before each service (9am and 6pm) in which we gather to pray for the service and any matters that the Spirit has placed on the prayer leader’s heart. These meetings are open to all, and they usually happen in the children’s church room just to the right of the entrance.
Services start with half an hour of worship, followed by a short welcome, announcements and taking up of the tithes and offerings before the sermon. If you are new, we would love to give you a welcome brochure that explains more about our church and that asks for your details so that we can send you a follow-up email to see how we can further help you.
On the first Sunday of every month, we pray for different nations for about five minutes just after worship has ended. On the last Sunday of every month, there is a time of communion just after worship has ended. Children are prayed for and released to children’s church after worship, or after these moments of gathering on above-mentioned Sundays. Children are first led outside to the bathrooms by children’s church teachers before being taken to their children’s church classroom, which is off the right of the main hall. All children from age two to thirteen are welcome at children’s church.
Morning sermons are typically 40 minutes, and evening services typically run for about 30 minutes. After the sermon the prayer team will be available to pray for anybody who needs any type of prayer, and there is complimentary tea and coffee as people mingle and get to know one another.
Please feel free to come to church dressed in whatever makes you comfortable. The majority of our family enjoy dressing in smart-casual clothes, but “dressing up” is in no way discouraged.
At Every Nation, we praise and worship God wholeheartedly with an extravagant, spontaneous and prophetic outpouring in our lives. We believe in and desire to worship God just as King David did – unashamedly. Many of our songs are home-grown and reflect our heart for all the nations and their unique flavours.
English lyrics are provided on the overhead projector for non-English songs, and people are encouraged to worship in whatever way they feel comfortable, be it kneeling, standing, raising their hands, dancing, clapping or waving flags. No matter what or how we sing, our heart is to enter into God’s presence, bring Him the worship He deserves as the King of kings and grow in deeper intimacy with Him as we see more of Him in our lives.
Tithes and offerings
As a family, we believe that tithing (giving 10% of our gross income to the church) is another act of worship to God, much like singing to Him is. Tithing is a way to honour God and to declare with action that He is our provider, that He is good and that He has lordship over every area of our lives, including finances.
Visitors are welcome to put money in the tithes baskets as they are passed around the aisles, but there is no obligation for anybody to give.
Some of our members prefer to give tithes via EFT, and the church’s banking details are therefore displayed on the overhead projector as the tithes are being taken up.
Tithes and offerings are all put towards the cost of running the church, and none of the tithes money is put toward building renovations. Should you want to give directly to our building, please click the Give tab on the menu above.
