About

Who are we?

We are a group of people living in and near Midleton who follow Jesus Christ. Out of our love for Jesus, we seek to honour him in our lives by practicing loving kindness to one another, praying for one another, supporting one another, and meeting together to give him worship and thanks for the Good News which he brought to the world.

What is the Good News?

The Good News of Christianity is summed up in John’s Gospel, Chapter 3 and verse 16: “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Find out more…

Jesus says: “Come to me, all you who are tired and weighed down with life, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28
