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 11 August 2019

Luke 12:32
Do not be afraid little flock, for it is your father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

There is so much to fear in life and it is normal to feel a reasonable amount of anxiety.

Who doesn’t fear in the face of rising terrorism, the environmental crisis, disease, and death? While there is so much real cause for anxiety, this is made worse by the fact that never before has a generation been so bombarded by images and information from so many corners of the world. It is difficult to escape the constant bad news that we hear through our media – both our personal social media and the formal news channels.

Throughout the bible, there is a constant reminder by God: Do not be afraid; Have no fear. This verse also begins like that. Jesus tells us, “Do not be afraid little flock.”

I am very comforted seeing myself as one in the flock of Christ. In God’s flock I am protected, and guided, and cared for, in ways that I could never expect from any other person, or from any government, or from any movement. I also know I could not care for myself in the same way that God cares for me. In these words of Jesus there is a promise of peace, surrender to help, and trust in God’s bigger picture. All will be well, and all will be well.

Why should we not be afraid? Jesus says because it is our Father God’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom.
What does this mean for you now in your life? God delights in giving us the kingdom. What part of the kingdom of God do you need to claim as God’s good gift to you today?

God loves you.
Remember that this week.
