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 & GODLY PLAY

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 using the Godly Play program. The program is currently for children aged 4 to 12.

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.

CAFE CHURCH

When there is a fifth Sunday of a month we often have Cafe Church. September had five Sundays so on the 29th we had a cafe church – with a football finals theme!

FELLOWSHIP

There are regular events throughout the year where we gather together for fellowship. These include dinners and games nights etc.

PASTOR’S MESSAGE

26 January 2020

1 Corinthians 1:10
I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.

Paul is appealing to the new Christian community to be in agreement and to not be ravaged by conflict, personal hurts and power plays. It seems such an impossible request as we all know how difficult it is to be of one mind when we come from such different backgrounds, with different theological perspectives, and with different wounds.
But – it is an ideal that we can strive for every day of our lives together.
A clue to how we can achieve this is found in verse 17. Paul says he is not relying on human wisdom to preach the gospel of Christ, “lest the cross be emptied of its power.” It is only when we allow ourselves to look beyond the limits of our own human egos and our human understandings, that we can see we are all family. It is only when we recognise the power of the Love of Jesus for each one of us, that we can all live together in the harmony that God has ordained for us. God loves each of us unconditionally. This is a powerful truth, and this is something to be celebrated in our church community as we live out our lives together for God’s kingdom.
Blessings in the rain,
Rosalie
