Welcome to our weekly newsletter!

How good is our God! We are a busy church - serving our community in many different and varied ways. We give thanks for the opportunities that You gracious Lord provide in this Your mission field.

This week we had Side Gate Cafe open during the holiday and what a busy day they had on Thursday - thank you to Poppy and the team of volunteers who served a great number of meals. A great turnout in the Cafe and also for Friendship Club. Their theme was toys - lots of attendees brought along toys from their childhood and shared stories about them. Held on the 2nd Thursday of the month - if you're free come along to the next one in October - the theme is 'what makes you happy/laugh'. Everyone is welcome!

Friendly Word Newsletter Sun 8 October 2023

Hello and Welcome to the Friendly Word Newsletter for this week

The first week of the school holidays is on - please pray for our families, students and teachers as they take their feet off the pedal and enjoy a change of pace, but also for those parents still working (or students studying) and juggling the demands of children at home or in holiday programs. Please be in prayer for people and families in our community who are unwell and dealing with health issues, grieving, struggling with financial issues, lonely and unconnected. Help us to reflect God's love to others, to be His hands and feet in our community.

We have lots on over the coming months, so check out the diary section and jot down the dates.

We look forward to seeing you at the 10am service and the 6pm for Alpha.

Let's fill our Lord's house with worship.

This Sunday morning Pastor Stephen Scott will be sharing with us all about Barnabas. You'll want to hear about his story.

Blessings,

Church Office Team
