For the past six weeks we've been in our annual vision series looking at the future God has for our church, which is one where grace changes everything. We have also been seeking to raise $400K to enable us to fast track stage 2 of the Connect Building Renewal.
On Sunday I was pleased to announce that we not only hit our target but exceeded it! The generosity and gospel heart of this church never stops taking me by surprise. We needed 80 people giving $400K, and were blown away by 111 people giving $516K. Praise God!
There is so much to give thanks for:
- 35 people who are new since the end of 2019 joined in giving
- 11 external supporters who cheer us on from afar gave...

On Sunday 18 April at 1pm, we will be baptising some of our members (Siqi, Andrew and Issac) down at Coogee Beach.
Baptism is an outward sign of the inward change Jesus promises those who come to him.
- 'Jesus has wased my sins away (Hebrews 10:22);
- 'I have died and risen with Christ' (Romans 6:1-7); and
- 'I pledge myself to God and his people' (1 Peter 3:21)
Please come along to encourage them and share in the joy of seeing people testify to the new life Jesus has given them.
Join us at 1pm, Sunday 18 April at Coogee Beach

Life is a challenge, with or without a pandemic. And we all make mistakes. We're human, right? God cares about our struggles and sent His son Jesus to conquer death -- not to guilt us into living moral lives, extract our money, or give us peace about dying, but to bridge a relationship with regular, imperfect humans. and one day heal the world of all brokenness.
It's great news! Join us this Easter to hear more.
