USE OF CHURCH PREMISES

The Facility Management Committee (FMC) has put in place a new booking request form for the use of church facilities. With immediate effect, please fill in the form if you would like to book rooms for ad-hoc events (i.e. not part of the regular Sunday activities). All rooms that have not been booked will be locked from Mondays to Saturdays. Only rooms which are booked will be unlocked. We appreciate your help in working together to steward our church building. 

SECURITY

For security purposes, entry to the church premises on weekdays is via your finger print. If you would like access, please come to the church office and have your finger print stored in the system. You will then be able to come in without having to press the doorbell on the ground floor.
