If you're feeling the lack of singing songs each Sunday, check out EMU musicGetty music and Colin Buchanan.
  • Please get in touch if you need help or assistance. Joy and David Brabham (jbrabham@bigpond.net.au / 0447 801 614) have agreed to coordinate this for our 9am congregation and Caleb Muggeridge (caleb.muggeridge@gmail.com / 0427 079 305) has agreed to do the same for 5pm. Their primary role will be receiving requests for help and offers of help, and connecting people.
  • Seek help if you are experiencing domestic or family violence. Searches for domestic and family violence help increased by 75% in the last few weeks and no church community is immune. Please contact Laura or Joshua at any time for urgent support.

Livestream

A livestream is a video feed of what is happening at church. We’re planning to have a video of whoever is at the front, and some way of putting the words to our creed and prayers on the screen.
We are expecting to livestream 9am and 5pm services via the Youtube link. If your present circumstances mean you will be unable to view this, please contact Joshua on 0421 235 055 or Laura on 0402 125 532 and we will help make arrangements for you.

This is new to all of us and I trust you will be gracious and understanding toward your own computer if it frustrates you, and to those working to make this happen if it fails on the day. On Sunday, the best place for an update is our website.

In the absence of a livestream we recommend you read Galatians 3:23 - 4:7 and discuss the following questions, before praying together:

  • What does this teach us about God?
  • What does this teach us about Jesus?
  • What does this teach us about ourselves?
  • What does this remind us about how to be saved?
Our live-streamed services on 5 April will include prayers, Bible readings, a sermon, family news, a kids spot and an interactive question / comment time. We have decided not to sing again this week, but stay tuned for an Easter song update!
Corporate responses will be visible on the screen at the appropriate times.

There will be no Lord's Supper again this week, 6 April.

Our prayer book service for ministry with the sick has the notes, ‘If for good reason it is not possible for the sick person to receive the sacrament, the minister shall give assurance that all who repent of their sins, trust in Christ, and celebrate his saving work with grateful thanks, truly eat and drink the body and blood of Christ, even though the bread may not have been eaten, or the wine drunk.’ While we are not all sick, but for reasons of sickness are unable to receive the Lord’s Supper, our assurance also lies in our faith in Jesus Christ.

Our staff team have given priority to reviewing our contact lists to make sure we get in touch with as many people as possible, including those who do not have email addresses. That said, please feel free to pass on this news and information to anyone you know.
We have decided to keep the video available for 1 week after the livestream, so as each new week is uploaded the old services will be removed.
Please comply with our government restrictions on social gatherings with one household plus one other.
