Welcome To New Covenant Church
Our Sunday services are a powerful mix of ancient and modern worship. Our form of prayer has been used for nearly 2000 years with a contemporary music style connecting you with God and the lives around you.

What To Expect During the Service
Welcome & Singing
After you are greeted you will be lead through an opening prayer, which is followed by music and singing offered as worship.
You will be lead through a prayer for the day, the purpose of which is to provide a focus of worship for the remainder of the service.
We then read passages from the Old Testament, New Testament, and one of the Gospel accounts.
A message is shared from the Bible designed to inspire, challenge, encourage, and help us grow as followers of Jesus Christ.
We read either the Nicene Creed or the Apostle's Creed (a historic statement of the church’s belief) together.
Prayers of the People
This is a responsive prayer time where we read prayers for a variety of people and situations in our world past, present and future.
Together, we repent of our brokenness against God and our neighbor.
This is where we greet our neighbors and “Pass the Peace” to symbolize the healed relationships that we have in Christ.
The children return to their families from Children's Church and we start the Holy Communion (or Lord’s Supper). As Anglicans we do this every week and we use an old form of blessing prayer which has been used (with variations) since the 4th century. Through this we remember the story and meaning of the death of Christ. It links us powerfully with the generations of God’s people. There is some singing as people receive the bread and wine.
Final Blessing and Dismissal
Then we finish with a blessing and the dismissal. Experienced prayer ministers are available to pray with you after the service.
