God is our refuge and strenth, always ready to help in times of trouble.
psalm 46:1

At Refuge, we believe that the best version of life is a life modelled after Jesus. Live life together in a caring and safe environment where you can be challenged in your faith,
encouraged to live a life committed to God and have fun with friends in the process.
The Refuge service has moved to being a weekly online gathering premiering every Saturday at 7:00 pm.
