We’d love to have you join us at our new location this LORD’s Day.
Until then, here’s some photos of the progress, a big thank you to all the amazing people who helped out in the renovations of our new space.
It’s our prayer that this can be a place where our LORD can be honoured, where the saints can be equipped for His work, while we gather together with the aim to worship in accordance with God’s Word, and that the Gospel message can be proclaimed from this church.
CGC Public Worship Commencing

John Knox and the Reformation
If you’re wanting a little peak into the life of Knox and the affect he had on society around him and abroad, this book is a marvellous little introduction.
D.M.Lloyd-Jones kicks off this informative little book with a live presentation that has been transcribed and which makes up the first half of this book. There’s an interesting question to tell what we really feel, about the ministry of John Knox. That question is: how do we feel about people preaching a similar way today? What happened in the Reformation is without a doubt one of the most remarkable events in history. Yes, the Protestant Reformation changed and turned the entire course of history, not only for Christians but for the entire world. Lloyd-Jones states as one example of this that if there were no Reformation there would have been no formation of the United States of America. But our little book isn’t about America it’s more about Scotland. And for Scotland in the reformation “This nation of yours, from being a dissolute, drunken, and illiterate country, became famous throughout the world for her sober, righteous, able, intelligent people”. What brought this all about, The Bible. Going back to God’s Word. This transformation was not just about changing behaviour. It was about converted souls and Gospel truth.
The Westminster Directory of Public Worship – Discussed by Mark Dever and Sinclair Ferguson
This little book is not just about looking into the guidelines of Biblical worship as laid out in the Directory, (although there is much merit in doing this!). These writings are more about Puritanism, their reverent worship of God, and especially when it comes to the preaching of the Word which both Mark and Sinclair have as their main focus in this discussion.(more…)
