Pastor’s Letter – September 20th

Dear friends With Matt preaching his series through Acts, over the last few weeks I have been able to spend a bit more time reading.  One book I have returned to is a book by a man by the name of John Flavel called “Keeping the Heart”.  Its subtitle is “How to maintain your love for God”. Now John Flavel is probably not familiar to many, if any, of you.  He was an English…

Pastor’s Letter – September 13th

Dear friends I thought I’d take the opportunity this week to give you a quick update on our kids and youth ministries. In a crazy year both of these areas have been hit with some pretty big challenges. Those of you who watched our online services will remember our “Kids Zone” segments which we know were a big hit with our families and a lot of fun for…

Pastor’s Letter – September 6th

Dear friends This week I was speaking with a pastor-friend and he mentioned someone he knew who was dying of cancer.  I was encouraged as he spoke of how her hope in God for the resurrection transformed the manner in which she approached death.  While obviously there is great grief and pain she endures these things knowing that the best is yet to come.  Christ’s…

Pastor’s Letter – August 9th

Dear friends Recently, as you probably know, I have been doing a bit of thinking about the “Lost” parable in Luke 15. It has made me reflect on the question of identity. I thought I would share some of my thoughts. In the last story of the parable, we see a rift between the “righteous” elder son and the “sinful” younger son. This reflects the actual rift between the…

Pastor’s Letter – August 2nd

Dear friends It’s been interesting, and somewhat alarming, to see and hear some of what has been happening in Victoria at this time.  Obviously our hearts goes out to the people of Victoria – it is a massively difficult time for them and they should be in our prayers. What has concerned me are the arguments around wearing face masks and that the language of rights…
