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.

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!

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 17 November 2019

Luke 21: 13
“This will give you an opportunity to testify.”

How do you testify about God? How do we as a congregation testify about God?
The gospel reading describes difficult, apocalyptic times where Jesus says his followers will be called upon to testify for their faith – to give testimony to who Jesus is in their lives under circumstances of persecution. Jesus says his followers need to be prepared to testify but they do not need to prepare their testimony in advance – as they can depend on Jesus’s wisdom. He says they will need to persevere in their faith.
Do you think about how your life is witnessing Jesus’s life?
Can we think intentionally about how our congregation bears testimony to the goodness of God in our community?
It is important to take note that Jesus says we do not need to be contrived – we need to live real and authentic lives dependant on the wisdom of God. He is also saying that we will not be bearing testimony in perfect situations – our families will be conflicted, we will be managing difficult personal relationships, life will be difficult, catastrophes will abound. Still, Jesus says, persevere, stay true and rely on God.
Our lives are not perfect. Our congregation is far from perfect. Yet – how do we testify and witness to God?
Blessings
Pastor Rosalie
