Minister's message


Coffee cup

October/November

With the ever shortening days and the impending “turning back of the clock” (I am not a fan), as well as the arrival of Christmas fare in some of our retail stores, one realises that we are on the sharp descent to Christmas, and the end of another year!!

BUT, before that, other things are importantly on the go.

Due to the very favourable feedback on our experimental Coffee Church, Sunday 10:30am services, our leaders have decided that we “do” Coffee Church once a month (as far as possible), to fall on the 3rd Sunday of each month.  Starting off at 10:30 with coffee (& treats) and fellowship, and carrying this atmosphere into a shorter time of formal worship is having positive outcomes. We are discovering-as we have recently read- that worship flows out of fellowship. Our next Coffee Church is on 21 October.

Another exciting and fruitful part of our church experience is our “half-termly” Messy Church, when a large number of young children –accompanied by a parent or carer- learn about faith through various creative activities, enjoy a short informal worship space and finish off the morning with refreshments. Our next Messy Church is on Monday, 29 October, from 10:00 until 12:00.    

Come 11 November, and many in our country and across the world will observe the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War, World War 1. It is a significant call for us who live in a relatively peaceful part of the world today to acknowledge the sacrifice of those who fell in this – and other –war/s for the welfare of their people, and also to join in thanksgiving for our privilege. Hopefully the Church will be at the forefront of this initiative.

As we journey through the year, we endeavour to journey in step with the Spirit of God. Until we reach the end.

Best wishes
