worship with us
SUNDAYS AT FIRST FREE
We gather for worship on Sundays at 10:45 am in the Park-side Sanctuary. Join us afterwards for coffee and refreshments. Our weekly cafe hour provides space to catch up with friends or connect with new ones.
About Our Worship
Each week we gather as God's people, not for intellectual stimulation or entertainment, but to engage with the living God - mind, body, and soul - and give our lives together to the transforming work of God's Spirit. Our worship (1) calls us together as the community of God's people, (2) sets the pattern for our lives in Christ and the gospel, and (3) propels us through the Spirit's power into mission.
Our hope is that our participation together - through PRAYER, SONG, SILENCE, CONFESSION, GOD'S WORD, and the LORD'S SUPPER - calls us out of passivity and indifference and forms us to live in the world as Christ's body - to embody faith, hope and love.
Because the church today stands in continuity with God's people throughout history, our worship incorporates hymns, songs and prayers from throughout Christianity past and present.
