We believe in a God who hears our prayers and is able to intervene on our behalf. If you need prayer, contact our team with your prayer request.

Discovering Jesus is just the beginning. If you are interested in Christianity or want to take your faith futher, get in touch with us. It would be our honour and privilege to encourage and equip you in your faith journey.
