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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

13th February 2022

This Sunday we begin a sermon series in Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians.  Of all the New Testament letters, this is one of the longest and most interesting, probably because it was written to a church with so many problems!  I find it amazing to think that the church could have so many difficulties […]

6th February 2022 – Vision Sunday

I hope that your heart is strengthened by God’s grace (Hebrews 13:9) today as are reminded of the gospel of God’s grace to us in Christ. Our bell ringers ring every Sunday to summon us to church, prior to the morning service.  Today there is a special ring to mark an astonishing occasion.  Today (Sunday […]

30th January 2022

We gather in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the one to whom “every knee will bow” (Philippians 2:10). I hope we experience a real joy in bowing our knees before him together today, because he is worthy of our praise. First, to the big news (for our church community at least!). I have […]

23rd January 2022

During January, our sermons have been on the theme of “Trusting Jesus”. Today is the last week in this series, “Trusting Jesus with our mind”, and please visit stjudesrandwick.org.au/youtube to catch up on sermons from past weeks. Also, today we are delighted to welcome our two new staff members, Rev. Emma Little (Women’s and Pastoral […]

16th January 2022

Gathering for church is an opportunity for us to “stop and consider God’s wonders” (Job 37:14). The two instructions, to stop, and to consider, are both essential. We cannot consider God’s wonders if we do not stop. And, while everyone seems to agree that stopping is a healthy thing to do in our frantically busy […]

9th January 2022

With Christmas over, we are in the season of Epiphany.  “Epiphany” comes from a Greek word meaning “appearance” or “manifestation”.  The central idea is that God, through Jesus, has truly appeared, has manifested himself.  He has shown himself to be real (not just an idea), knowable (not a mystery) and relatable (not aloof). We speak […]
