About Us

We celebrate that we come from many different ethnic and faith backgrounds and this is reflected in how we do things. We seek God in a variety of ways, and most often this has a personal and informal feel to it.

Also, we are passionate about the Christian Holy Books and interacting over them to connect their insights to the real issues in our lives. Come, taste and see.
