6th May 2021 – 10th Ordinary Sunday

Following the end of the Easter season and the Ascension-Pentecost-Trinity sequence, today we return to our trip through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.  You might remember that the first three chapters of Ephesians have been grandly theological, setting out what God has done all the way from the plans he made before the world was […]

9th May 2021 – 5th Sunday after Easter

On this Mothers’ Day we give thanks to God for the mothers he has given each of us, and for the nurture, in body, mind and spirit, which we received from them.  We also recognise and honour all of the mothers and mother figures in our congregation.  We give thanks to God for them and […]

2nd May 2021

We continue in the “Easter season”, with readings from the book of Acts, which some have said ought to be called “the Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ”. Opening sentences and psalms during Easter season are chosen to express the joyous triumph of the resurrection. Today’s psalm is the closing section of Psalm 22, […]

25th April 2021 – 3rd Sunday after Easter

Although we are probably not used to marking this day with a Sunday church service (Anzac Day last fell on a Sunday in 2010), I am sure there is no better place for us to be on this day when we reflect on the reality of war in our fallen world.  I hope you will […]

18th April 2021 – 2nd Sunday after Easter

I hope you find it encouraging and thought-provoking to engage with God’s word today. In sermons throughout the Easter season, we will engage with the book of Acts.  Andrew Goddard is preaching today on “The Unlikely Christian” from Acts 8:26-40. We also read from the gospel every Sunday; this year we are working sequentially through […]

11th April 2021 – 1st Sunday after Easter

Greetings to you on this first Sunday after Easter. I was very grateful to God for our Easter weekend.  All of our services were well attended, with Good Friday and Easter Sunday morning services back at the normal levels we saw in 2019 (all in-person Easter services were cancelled in 2020).  Maundy Thursday dinner and […]

4th April 2021 – Easter Sunday

Easter is the most joyous day in the Christian calendar, when we celebrate the living hope won for us by Jesus’ defeat of death. We are solemn together on Good Friday, but on Sunday we celebrate together that Christ is risen. Have you ever thought about exactly how Jesus death saves us? Would it surprise […]

28th March 2021 – Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is the day we remember Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem a week before he was crucified.  Today we welcome Bishop Michael Stead (who is our bishop here in the South Sydney region). He and his wife Felicity are joining us for our two morning services.   I hope you will be strengthened by God’s […]

21st March 2021

Today we hold our Annual Vestry Meeting (following morning tea after the 10 am service).  As always, this gives us a valuable opportunity to reflect on how we are tracking as a church, and to pray for God’s guidance as we move into the coming year. You can find the full package of the 2021 […]

14th March 2021

After last year’s live Easter services were cancelled due to COVID, it is exciting to be able to say that we have a lot of great things planned for this Easter.  Here is what’s happening. On Palm Sunday (28th March), the church is decked out with palm leaves, and in red, for the blood which […]
