Welcome to Churchlands
Thanks for taking the time to find out more about our church community. Churchlands is all about helping people to discover and strengthen their relationship with God through prayer, worship and the teaching of scripture. We believe that practising the presence of God and moving in the power of God are very natural ways that God wants us to live our lives. At Churchlands, people regularly receive healings and life-changing breakthroughs, allowing every person to grow into the plans and purposes that God has for them to impact the world they live in.
