Pastor’s Letter – October 29

G’day Church, If you weren’t able to be at church last Sunday you missed an update on some of our mission and outreach activities: The Last Daughter film screening on Friday 20th: This was a great night! In addition to a bunch of our church members, we had 14 guests, many of whom don’t know Jesus or attend a church. This event grew out of an idea from a couple of…

Pastor’s Letter – October 22

Hello Church, Many of you will have heard of my wife Peta’s recent recovery from emergency surgery. Peta had surgery at the RAH on Friday 6th for a complication that arose from a dental problem, which then required an extended stay in ICU, before returning home on Friday 13th. It will take some time for her to return to full health, but we’re thankful to God for small…

Pastor’s Letter – October 8

Hi All, This year we’ve been on quite a journey in the parts of the Bible we’ve studied at church: In term 1 we worked through the first half of Mark, hearing about Jesus, who he was and what he came to do. We then moved into the first part of Romans, hearing about human sinfulness and our need for rescue. In the first half of Exodus, we then saw an amazing…

Pastor’s Letter – October 1

Hi All, I’ve really enjoyed these last couple of weeks in Romans and even though it’s a part of the Bible I know well, I still feel like I’ve been struck by all sorts of things I either haven’t seen before or just haven’t been struck by before! (Which isn’t surprising given this is God’s living and active word!) One of those…

Pastor’s Letter – September 3rd

Hello Church, Church is about sharing life together as family gathered around Jesus. To begin with we might not share much else in common other than our relationship with him, and that’s part of the beauty of it. God draws us together as he gathers us around his Son. So we want to reflect that in the way we share life together. One simple way we can do this is chipping in…

Pastor’s Letter – August 27th

Hello Church, This Sunday after church we have the second of our two evangelism training sessions with the team from Engage Work Faith. All the feedback I’ve had from the first session was that people found it really helpful and we’re all looking forward to Part 2. The material has been carefully prepared so that Part 2 is going to be really helpful regardless of whether…

Pastor’s Letter – August 20th

G’day Church, We had such a great time at the Engage Work Faith seminar last Sunday that I I thought it’d be good to sum up some of the most helpful moments from the seminar. At the bottom of this email are a few key diary dates coming up. The seminar got us thinking about how we grow in our ability to get to know our non-Christian friends and colleagues. I think we could…

Pastor’s Letter – August 6th

G’day Church, We’ve got a few events coming up to help us introduce people to Jesus. I thought it might be good to explain the logic of the way we’ve planned this. Sometimes we might have an opportunity for a gospel conversation come right out of the blue – like when a stranger on the plane asks about the book you’re reading and it all just cascades from there, for…
