This Sunday is week three of our month of going global as we hear about the work of our missionary partners around the world. We've already met Emily Woods and Scott Sanders and this Sunday we'll be hearing from Josh and Susannah Apieczonek who are working in France to make Jesus known among university students.
Also this Sunday I will be sharing from one of my favourite passages in the Bible on the theme: A Heart for World Mission from Luke 15.
Don't forget to give to the missions offering this month, as we seek to raise $15,000 for our partners.

We can’t wait to see you this Sunday as Bruce Linton brings our series on Romans to an end. Romans 8 is an amazing passage that reminds us of the security we have, and to have an eternal perspective on life on earth. We’ll also be hearing from Scott Sanders as part of Global Mission Month and his work with Geneva Push in church planting around Australia.
Also this Sunday morning we are baptising three of our members (Matt Moore, Peter Oh and Ricky Silva) on site in a big pool. If you know any of these guys, please come along in the morning to encourage them and share in the joy of seeing people testify to the new life Jesus has given them.
Looking forward to seeing you...Continue Reading

Hope you're battling through the first month of winter alright. This Sunday we're looking at the first half of what some have called the climax of the entire Bible. Romans 8 is about how if Jesus has saved us from the reign of sin and death, why is it that Christians are still sinning and dying? Hasn't Jesus failed?
Also this Sunday is the beginning of Going Global, our annual mission month. It's a chance to share God's heart for our world as we pray and support those in other places making Jesus known. This Sunday we are meeting Emily Woods who is working in West Africa with women coming off the streets.
Can't wait to see you there.

This Sunday we are looking at the struggle each of us has between knowing and wanting to do what is right and finding that we often end up doing what we know to be wrong. Romans 7 is one of the most relatable passages in the Bible on the struggle each of us has, and it points us forward to how we can overcome.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.

God's grace is amazing, abundant, and free. There is nothing that we can do to save ourselves. To all of that we might happily agree but if this is the case, that Christ has done it all, then why would I ever need to change the way that I live? If he's got sin covered then why would I stop doing it?
Join us this Sunday as we continue digging into Romans 5-8 by working through chapter 6 together. These are dense sections of the Bible that push us to think deeply about who we are as followers of Jesus and what difference that makes for our lives each and every day.

This Sunday we're continuing our series NEW looking at the new life Jesus offers. In particular, we're looking at why sin and selfishness are part of human nature, and how Jesus came to liberate us from the power and penalty of sin. Have a read of Romans 5 before you come along.
Also, don't forget this Sunday is the last day to register for Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?. We're using this event to encourage the gift of hospitality in our church and to deepen relationships across the church.
