That's right folks. On the March Long Weekend (Public Holiday on Monday 11th March) many of our folks have headed away.
So we will have a special combined 10am service Sunday 10th March that you can attend inperson and online. Cafe Church will return on Sunday 17th March.
Join in the service with your kids, with the Lounge being available for parents of young ones as normal with the service 'Live Streamed'.
God blessed the seventh day and made it a holy day. He made it special because on that day he rested from all the work he did while creating the world.

If you weren't able to be here on Sunday, we had a fabulous morning with the baptisms of Sophie and Kay, so connect in with our You Tube channel and connect in with the service.
Baptism, Peter clarifies, is a response to God flowing from a conscience that has already been cleansed by the Holy Spirit through faith. Just as Jesus proclaimed His triumph over sin and death through His own suffering and death on the cross, believers proclaim their triumph over sin and death through water baptism.
1 Peter 3:21 New International Version
21 and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
World Day of Prayer
On the first Friday in March each year, over 170 countries participate in the same church service. This ecumenical service focuses on a chosen country, written by a group of Christian women from that country. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer, as well as in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.
Palestine is the focus for 2024 and the theme chosen by the women is: “I beg you … bear with one another in love,” based on Ephesians 4:1-2.

“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Following on from Vision Sunday and Pastor Stephen Scott's sermon ...
Church Family Members are invited to an information night on Tuesday 13th of February at 7:30 pm in our auditorium where more detailed discussion on the Proposed sale of land to Marion Life and future development will be available in a relaxed coffee and cake setting.
At that meeting GC will put a motion to the meeting for discussion and open a formal 3 week period of voting by members.
An information and FAQ sheet will be provided.
MCCGC asks that we all continue to pray that our God’s plan will be realised in His perfect timing.
We invite you to join with us on Sunday 25 Feb 10am for Sophie's baptism.
Let's celebrate and rejoice in this special moment of Sophie's life:
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change.
Being baptised shows the world that that you love, trust and have put your hope in Christ.
Baptism is an individual expression of faith but one that connects us to a community travelling on the same journey.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
