Invite someone to our Christmas Service

On Sunday 10 December, we started our Christmas series of teachings and Ian shared that a recent survey demonstrated that a high percentage of people will say “yes” if invited by a friend. Our Christmas Service presents an ideal opportunity for people who have never attended a church service.

The PDF attached is a flyer that you may like to share as a follow up to your personal invitation. It says what people can expect on the day, provides our address and the time of the service.

Hard copies of the flyer will be available at this Sunday’s service at the Garratt Street Centre.

Theme for 2024 - Going Deeper

Our theme for 2024Going Deeper

The Key Verse:

Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ [2 Peter 1:5-8]

Michele Black - Newsletter - One Year On - October 2023

Read Michelle's newsletter - a year on.

Michelle talks of Flora's assimilation, moving back into her home and she asks for our prayer when a decision is to be made that will finally see Flora with Australian Citizenship and the right to use Black as her name. This will happen on 20 October.

Michelle has not been able to secure a permanent teaching position but has been kept has many days of casual work teaching a very wide variety of subjects and age groups. She asks us to pray that she will get sufficient work to cover 6 weeks of unpaid leave during the Christmas break.

Flora is to have extensive dental work shortly. We pray that this will be successful without trauma.
