Can't wait to see you then.

Last Sunday we spent time as a church reflecting on a very basic principle of life: we give generously to the things and people we love. We were challenged by King David's love for God that overflowed with abundant generosity, and God's love for us which overflowed with abundant generosity in sending his Son to die for us.
We also celebrated the abundant...

My favourite food in the world is roast lamb. All Liz has to do to make me feel loved is to welcome me home in the evening with the smell of roast lamb wafting through the air. That smell is the sweet aroma of deliciousness.
The Bible says that when God’s people give with a generous heart, that our gifts are a fragrant offering that rises to God and...Continue Reading

Join us this October as we look at what it...Continue Reading

How do I make sure that I don't waste my life? Plenty of people have an answer for this question. Some will say travel the world. Others will insist on making an impact in whatever you do. Still more will see the answer in chasing and catching your dreams. But do any of the suggestions that we hear actually matter once our life is over?

This is our final week in the book of Titus looking at the healthy church. We have seen Paul give instructions to his young protege on the church and the household. In this final week he turns his attention to living in society. How are Christians to live out their changed lives in society? Christians are often seen as out of step with society on a bunch of...Continue Reading

You may have seen St Michael’s Anglican Church on the corner of Albion and Flinders St, Surry Hills – an old church with 163 years of history. Over the past few years, we've experienced a rejuvenation – there are new people coming along, kids being born and people exploring Jesus for the first time.
To reflect this renewal, we have decided to change our...
