Church Services on Sunday, August 21, 2016

Welcome to the website of the Church of the Holy Spirit, an international group of believers and seekers from many different backgrounds, sharing together the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  Please go to our Visitor's Information page for service details including information about our Sunday School program and Child Protection Policy.


'When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.  Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God'. Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue leader said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”  The Lord answered him, You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”  When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.  Luke 13:12-15
