Connecting Our Community with the Love of Jesus

Our Church

Connecting Our Community with the Love of Jesus

Yes we certainly do enjoying being able to share Jesus’ love with our community. These are some of the ways that we do that.

SUNDAY WORSHIP

We meet at 10am each Sunday for a reasonably contemporary, relaxed yet God-centred worship service. The fourth Sunday of every month we share the sacrament of Holy Communion together.
Our services usually finish around 11.30am.

EXPLORERS

Explorers is the name of our childrens program that happens during the Sunday service (during school terms).
After about 20 minutes the children and their leaders go to a separate room and undertake their worship and learning time. The program is currently for primary school aged children.

BIBLE STUDY

We have a number of Bible Study groups that occur at various times during the week. Please contact Pastor Rosalie for more details.

PRAYER

Prayer is an important part of our life and witness. As well as a dedicated time at the church on Tuesday evenings, members are encouraged to use their prayer diaries and pray on a daily basis.

PASTOR’S MESSAGE

Sunday 15 Sept 2019

1 Timothy 1:15
The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the foremost.

How do we share the good news of Christ in a world influenced by economics, multiple cultures and different faiths – of which Christianity is just one? How do we share the good news to a world in pain when it seems like most behaviours are acceptable and excusable these days? How do we share the good news message of salvation from sin when it can seem judgemental, old fashioned and irrelevant?
Different from the enlightenment approach to life which has dominated western culture for only 400 years, the Christian view sees humanity as sinful – as flawed, as choosing against God’s purposes for us. The enlightenment world view sees humans as reasonable and always capable of choosing for individual and common good.
Surely if we stopped to assess what is happening in society and to the environment we would see evidence of where this enlightenment belief in humanity’s competence and rationality falls far short! Surely if we saw the personal disappointments that we are burdened with when thinking about our own and other’s failures we would know that we are struggling in our humanity?
The good news of Christ is that God entered history as Jesus to set us free from our sinfulness, to reconcile us to God through the Holy Spirit, and to empower us to participate in God’s mission to bring his kingdom to earth.
Jesus Christ is still our Lord and Saviour. We should not be ashamed of the gospel because we have much to offer. I encourage you to share this good news confidently.
Blessings,
Pastor Rosalie
