SONRISE DREAM

We’re dreaming a God sized dream! 

A church growing exponentially! A thriving, prayer-filled, multicultural church known as a centre for excellent worship with the supernatural move of God over multiple services. 

We dream of a highly engaged, vibrant, multi-generational church with a spirit of excellence where children are embraced and equipped in the present.

We’re dreaming of a hub for ministry training for the next generation, a centre to meet community needs, and a sending church to equip people for missions and church planting.

We believe this is God’s dream for us!
