What is JOY Place?

Prasie at JOY Place

The JOY Place is a church service where we provide loving support and a safe environment, for nurturing a growing knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

It's a fun and informal service followed by tea, coffee, cake and bistcuits!

Sometimes we have a craft session to make reminders of the love of Jesus and how he helps us in our daily lives.

Sometimes we have special guests like the special Salvation Army band Christmas celebration!

Sometimes we have 'bring a friend' events such as the Flag dance workshop where we can bring friends along to have fun and maybe teach them a little about the love Jesus has for them.


What does JOY stand for?

J is for Jesus
O is for Others
Y is for You!
J O Y!
The JOY Place is somewhere Jesus is worshipped by you through Bible teaching, singing, prayer, and fellowship with others.

We believe that the gospel of Christ and the good news should be available freely to all...

At My Own Pace

(Author unknown)

My face may be different
But my feelings are the same.
I laugh and I cry
And I take pride in my gains.

I was sent here among you 
To teach you to love
As God in heaven 
Looks down from above

To Him I am no different.
His love has no bounds.
It's those here among you
In cities and towns

Who judge me by standards
That man has imparted.
But this family I've chosen
Will help me get started.

For I'm one of the children
So special and few
That  came here to learn
The same lessons as you

That love is acceptance
It must come from the heart
We all have the same purpose 
Though not the same start

The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I'll do it as you do
But at my own pace.

1 Samuel 16:7b

“For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
