This weekend we will be continuing our new series on the book of Ephesians called ‘United With Christ’, as we look at verses 15-23 of Chapter one as Jodie speaks to us about God’s Incredible Power.
We have recently made some changes to both our 5pm and 9am services, making them suitable for people of all ages and stages. We now have a kids’ program at BOTH of our services and would love to see you there!
If you have any questions simply fill out a response slip during the service, email us at email@example.com or send an SMS to 0439 890 086 and Jodie would love to answer them this weekend during our services.
Join us on Saturday at 5pm where we will have fellowship over dinner afterwards, or Sunday at 9am followed by morning tea and hot espresso!
We’re also officially Covid-Safe, so you can have confidence in joining us in person, or you can also watch our livestream over at watch.jamberooanglican.com.
The second of our six church values states that, “we are Anglican in our form, as we reflect the Reformation in the shape and substance of our common prayer.”
We are more than just Anglican by name, for we also follow the way of doing church that was put in place by the English Reformers in the sixteenth century.
So even though we don’t use 500-year-old words, we still follow the vibe of the ‘Book of Common Prayer’ in our church services.
This means we regularly say things out loud as we pray prayers, declare our beliefs, and sing songs and Psalms.
We talk about our sin, pray for forgiveness, and then comfort each other by hearing God’s grace and mercy.
We focus on praying for the world, the community, the work of the church, and the needs of individuals, as well as the words and the message of the Lord’s Prayer.
We experience the power of the cross in the Lord’s Supper, and we prayerfully portray the joy of spiritual rebirth in the baptism of people of all ages.
We trust the Bible as God’s word, so we read each week from the Old and New Testaments and also a Gospel, and we listen carefully to the preaching of the sermon.
We follow the ordination service to help us choose and appoint pastors, and to explain how bishops and other ministers should live and act.
We also teach and believe what is written in ‘The Articles of Religion’ which summarises what we believe about our Triune God, his people, and the world.
We love being a part of a worldwide family of Anglicans, celebrating our common faith, even though our style is less formal than some.
Above all, our services are special occasions where we come together to experience God with the congregation in our church as we serve all the people living in our parish.
