Open House is free, open to the public and visitors are most welcome to attend.
We hope these series of public lectures will be suitable for longtime church goers, brand-new Christians, wounded-by-other-traditions Christians, people filled with spiritual questions and lovers of history alike.

If you’ve ever flipped from the last page of the Old Testament to the first page of the new – you’ve just skipped over 400 years of history with that single page turn.
Have you ever wondered what happened between the Old and New Testaments?What exactly happened during these 400 years? Who was in control? What people groups shaped the experience of the earliest Christians?
In those four hundred years, the Pharisees and Sadducees, synagogues, Roman governors, and the family of Herod emerged onto the scene. None were present in the Old Testament. Where did they come from?
And countless events not mentioned in the New Testament had a profound impact on the world of Jesus, such as the Maccabean revolt, the rise of the Essenes, the dominance of the Greek language, and the rise of the Roman Empire.
So what happened between the Old and New Testaments?
Open House is held every second Wednesday in the Parish Centre
