What is a typical Sabbath worship service
The Sabbath is our day of rest. It begins on Friday evening and concludes on Saturday evening. It is a weekly time set apart by God for us to rest and focus on what really matters: gratitude for our lives and our communities, and for the growth of the spirit. An important part of that is the opportunity to pray and worship.

Do we play music?
Yes! The Apostolic Music Ministry is committed to leading God's people into worship, fellowship, and welcoming the Holy Spirit into the atmosphere before the word is preached. These sessions range from traditional Gospel to Contemporary Christian music and sacred hymn. The experience is supernatural, vibrant and spirit filled. Lives are transformed in an outward expression of praise and worship welcoming the Holy Spirit.
Attire for sabbath services.
You might wonder how you are expected to dress at a church you’ve never visited before. We do not place restrictions on guests. Please come as you are! But on any given Sabbath, you will typically find women adorned in modest apparel. Often, people “dress up” for Sabbath services, wearing business casual or business formal. During services you may see some people wearing head coverings or a prayer shawl.
Tithes and Offering
We are thankful to God for opening new doors for our ministry and are grateful to be able to serve Him with you. We believe that giving is a matter of the heart and that each person should give according to what the Lord has purposed in their hearts. If you have been blessed by this ministry and God has touched your heart to support it financially, we would be blessed to receive your offering.
Yes! Fellowship lunch begins promptly after service. Visitors are invited to join us for lunch in the fellowship hall where one of our food committee members will provide you with a meal. Children are served earlier. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch.
We sincerely hope you’ll visit us this Sabbath! We pray that through the Word of God and our worship, your faith will be strengthened.
"Everything about this church is amazing - the love, the teaching, the preaching, the singing, the praising, the worship, the fellowship. You have to go and see for yourself becuase words cannot explain. Worship, worship, worship. love, love and more love."
Evangelist Annie Brathwaite
"A house full of incredible talents."
