Church news for the week beginning 11th February 2017
This weekend’s Bible Talk
This weekend Jodie will be speaking on the topic ‘Who becomes one: God’s Word on marriage’, from Genesis chapter 1 verses 19 to 25.
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
Next weekend 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 free Devonshire tea and history display, whilst the kids enjoy a jumping castle and ice creams. After church at 5pm we’ll have a free 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 free 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.
If you haven’t already invited friends and neighbours, then this is the week to give them a call or drop them a note.
