8th May 2022 – Mother’s day

This Sunday is Mothers’ Day. It is good for us to give thanks to God for the mother he gave each of us, and to pray for and encourage our mums as they seek to help us grow in Christ. We’ll be praying for all mothers and mother figures, in all services this Sunday. I […]

1st May 2022

We gather to glorify God, to pray, to hear and learn from God’s word, to encourage each other, and to show the world that our Creator is valuable enough for us to spend time “about his business” (Luke 2:49 KJV). This week we are returning to our sermon series in 1 Corinthians. Some sad news […]

24th April 2022

The Sunday after Easter is sometimes called Low Sunday (suggesting that we all might be exhausted from Easter celebrations), but we have an excellent Sunday planned.  At 9.30 am and 4.00 pm, in view of Anzac Day, I am preaching on the fight for Christian freedom. We held six services over the Easter weekend – […]

17th April – Easter Sunday

Our Easter theme this year is the invitation to “Find New Life” through the Lord Jesus. He conquered death on the first Easter morning, rising from the grave, never to die again. Now everyone who bows the knee to him as the rightful king of the universe receives the new life that only he can […]

10th April – Palm Sunday

Here is a photo of the gospel message which someone wrote in the sky earlier this week (when it was sunny!). We have the church decked out with palms this Sunday for the celebration of the day when Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  The fact that Jesus was crucified only a week later […]

3rd April 2022

I have been conscious this week that more than the usual number of our congregation are either in hospital, or unable to leave home, suffering with various illnesses.  While in many cases, we can be hugely grateful for the skilled medical care we receive, it is reminder of our frailty.  Every one of us, whether […]

13th March 2022 Roof Dedication Service

This Sunday is a very special occasion. We are giving thanks to God for his wonderful provision to us of a new slate roof (completed late last year). We welcome Archbishop Kanishka Raffel, with his wife Cailey, to dedicate the roof. It is all about the simple act of recognising a gift of God, giving […]

27 February 2022

Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s events with Jerome and Indra. I thought it was an encouraging time. The Science and Faith seminar has inspired me to run similar events in the future. This Sunday in church we will complete the National Church Life Survey. While this does interrupt the flow of the […]

20 February 2022

On Sunday, we gather together to “encourage one another” in the love and service of our Lord Jesus, and “all the more as we see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:25) (the Day, of course, being the day of his return). This Sunday we are joined by our mission partners Jerome and Indra who will […]
