Souls Harbour is affiliated with Assemblies of God (GB) and is a Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, Gospel-preaching, Holy Spirit-following, people-embracing church. Our services are in a contemporary style with live music, including a mix of modern and traditional songs and hymns. We have a broad mixture of people of multiple nationalities, from various cultural and religious backgrounds and in various stages growth in our Christian faith. What brings us all together is simply the perfect saving grace of Jesus Christ and the desire to live for Him. As we learn and grow together, we are committed to creating a “climate for change” — changed lives, changed communities and a changed world.
Children join their parents for the praise and worship portion of the service and then be dismissed to their Sunday School classes where they have fun, engaging lessons and activities.
Soul’s Harbour was founded in 1987 by Pastor David Flanders and his assistant Roy Little who is now with the Lord. A small group met in the Flanders’ home for a few months until they outgrew it and then moved to the St.John’s Hall. Soon after the move 19 members emigrated to Canada! After about three years the Church moved into a leased property in Fore Street where it met for nine years.
In September 1999 Soul’s Harbour moved into the present building. Initially it was going to be a short term home but the Lord began to give us great vision for the Church in this situation. The Church united behind the vision to create a youth café and extensive facilities for youth and children in different parts of the building.
In May 2001 Soul’s Harbour bought the building and began renovation and remodelling. Financial help has come form a number of charities and local businesses have been very generous in donating materials.
Unusually for a rural church we have a distinct international flavour At Soul’s Harbour we are committed to creating a “Climate for Change” ~ changed lives, changed communities and a changed world.
