Church news for the week beginning 14th January 2017

This weekend’s Bible Talk

This weekend we welcome Simon Chaplin, the new Assistant Minister at Oak Flats Anglican, who starts a four week series titled ‘Christ in the Psalms’, with the first talk titled ‘Sin and folly’ from Psalm 14.

Mission of the month: Anglicare

Anglicare is our mission of the month. Support this ministry through the ‘Mission Table’ in the Hall.

150th Anniversary Celebrations

It’s only five weeks until we remember the 150th Anniversary of the opening of our church building at Jamberoo. To celebrate, we have two, big events.

On Saturday 18th February at 3pm we’re having a devonshire tea and history display, whilst the kids enjoy a jumping castle and ice creams. After church at 5pm we’ll have a sausage sizzle and lamingtons, followed by a fun night of bush dancing in the hall.

On Sunday 19th February we’re joining together for church at the special time of 9.30am, which will be followed by a delicious morning tea and lunch together, with historical displays.

At both services we welcome Bishop Peter Hayward to speak to us from God’s word, and we will have an opportunity to give thanks to God for his faithfulness.
