And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace,who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. – 1 Peter 5:10 ESV

A warm welcome to all those who are worshipping in our church this Sunday.

You can now attend church without registering, however, in order to comply with the government requirements, you will still be required to sign in at the door.  

2021 Budget Vote

The majority of our members have voted for the 2021 Budget and thereby approved the budget. Thank you to all the members who have participated in voting.

Sunday School

We are using Lessons for Life by Jill Masters for Sunday school. Here is a link to material if you want more information.

May the following scripture from Deuteronomy 6 guide and encourage you:

4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

May God bless you in fulfilling your baptismal promises in teaching your child about God and His great plan to rescue us all.

If you have children and would like to get the support material that we provide, please contact Daniella or Francois (0419 623 397).

You can also speak to any elder.
