To our dear friends of Cherry Gardens Church:
There has been some relaxing of Covid 19 restrictions, so the Leadership Team has prepared the required documentation and put in place additional cleaning and hygiene measures using the 1 square metre distancing requirement from Government. We limit the number of people on any Sunday who use the lectern and microphone. We very happy seeing our friends in live worship. We are able to use the church and also the room next door where we have sound and projection on a large screen so that people in this room can be part of the service too.

Our church and meeting room are air-conditioned! Lovely and warm this winter!
Our location is in a peaceful setting and provides the right atmosphere for retreats.

There is a good kitchen with a refrigerator and a stove for reheating food. With an abundance of natural light, there also is a good-sized deck outside with lovely rural views.
