Pastor’s Letter – February 18th

G’day Church, At the bottom of this letter we’ve listed some upcoming events for your diary and your prayers. But this week I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christian biographies with you. On Sunday we saw how Mark put blind Bartimaeus in front of us as a great role model of faith and discipleship. There is so much for us to learn from the example of Bartimaeus,…

Hi All, This Friday night our youth group kicks off for another year. I’m looking forward to a great night, we’ll play some games, grab some ice creams and look forward to a great year ahead.

Pastor’s Letter – January 14th

Hi All, I wonder if you’ve seen this year’s ‘lamb ad’ on TV this week? (For those who don’t know, Australian lamb does a TV ad each year in the leadup to Australia Day, and they’re known for the fun they poke at society and have at times been a little controversial). This year’s ad features the different generations of Australia,…

Pastor’s Letter – January 7th

Hi All Happy New Year! I hope you were able to enjoy some celebrations over the weekend and that you’re able to enjoy life at a slightly slower pace over this time where lots are on holidays and things have slowed down a bit.

Pastor’s Letter – December 10

G’day Church, First, an update for Minis families: unfortunately we’re not able to run Minis this Sunday, so please bring some activities for your Minis kids to do during church. Our team has been stretched very thin in recent months. We’ve seen an ongoing growth in the number of kids and therefore the leaders required to care for them well, and this has combined with a…
