Hello Church Family,

Guess what is back this week : BBQ Church - we are looking forward to gathering together again for the yummy monthly BBQ and catch up around food, faith, friendship and fun!

The 10am service is going to be a great time with two baptisms - please come along to celebrate with Sophie and Kay as they take this step of faith.

In Romans 10:9 Paul writes: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. By expressing what is in our hearts, we deepen our faith – just as the act of baptism can deepen our commitment to what we believe.

There's lots of news and info in the FW this week so grab a cuppa and sit down with your phone, tablet, computer and enjoy the read.

God Bless,

Church Office Team

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10.

These are works done, not in our own strength and for our own benefit, but by the grace of God and in obedience to Him – led by the Holy Spirit, to God's glory.

Blessings,

Vision Sunday 2024 - 4th February

Hello folks,

You've got to come along this Sunday or tune in online - we have a great morning planned from Pastor Stephen Scott leading us in The Word and God's direction for our Church and Community into 2024. We have some special displays to see of all the Life and Light Groups here at church - so many ways you can participate, join in and serve. Plus we are having lunch together. It sounds so good doesn't it. Let's come together and enjoy the day by praising God and His goodness over us.

Check out the Friendly Word Newsletter to see all the groups coming back this week. We have a family camp to register for, rosters to fill in, baptism, Easter Services and more.

We encourage you to be in prayer for Vision Sunday, Pastor Stephen and our Church Community.

Lord, I praise You for inviting me into Your eternal purpose. I thank You that You are working out everything in conformity with the purpose of Your will (Ephesians 1:11)

Lord we come before you with grateful hearts for where You have placed us in Your community. We lift up Pastor Stephen to You as he seeks You in preparing Your Word and direction for our church family in 2024. Help us we pray, to grasp the church vision that You have for us, and may we be sensitive to Your leading and guidance with a sense of joyous anticipation. Amen

Blessings,

Church Office

Hello to 2024.

The New Year has come and gone. Wow! first week into 2024.

Come along and join us at the combined 10am service.

We would love to hear about your New Year and perhaps how you have relaxed and enjoyed God's creation by spending time in gardens, walking, in stillness, watching the clouds, praying and maybe a little work here and there!

If you are unable to be here in person, we will be live streaming.

Summer Church details are highlighted in the FW.

Also we have the Leaders Meeting scheduled for Wed 31 Jan 2024 7.30pm. If you are a leader, helper or interested in how you might be involved in 2024, put this date in your diaries for a fresh new and different start to 2024.

The Church Office is currently closed - reopening on Monday 15 January along with Side Gate Cafe and Good Gear.

Blessings,
