Welcome Visitors!

If you are visiting Maple Grove, the Membership committee would like to welcome you.

Please take a moment to sign our Guest Book in the foyer. You may have some questions about our Christian Education programme, or maybe you would like to see around the church itself.

Please let us know how we can help, by asking one the Ministers, the ushers or the membership person (at the Membership table in the foyer).

Also, please join us for coffee following the 10:30 service in our gym. Just follow the crowd and the aroma of coffee and tea! Ask for one of our red guest coffee mugs, which are specifically for new members, guests, and ‘returning friends’.
