The hope of Easter!

Hope is something human beings need – the last couple of years have made us more aware of that than ever! We all need hope – something to look forward to, some light at the end of the tunnel. And a hope that doesn’t disappoint us.

If there is one thing Easter is about, it is hope. For 2000 years, Christians have found that the events that we remember at Easter bring hope – a hope which holds out even through the hardest circumstances. And we think, if you have the courage really consider what Easter is all about, you will find real reason for hope too.

That’s why we’d love to have you come and be part of our considerations and celebrations of the hope of Easter. We are celebrating this hope in a few ways:

  • A Good Friday service where we reflect on why Good Friday is ‘good’ (9:30am, Friday 15th)
  • An Easter Sunday service at church, celebrating the hope of Easter (9:30am, Sunday 17th)
  • An Easter Sunday family friendly service in Victoria Park, where we will share this hope together (11:30am at Victoria Park, with a picnic afterwards if you would like)

You are so very welcome to come and share in the Reality of Hope with us at Easter time.

All Together Now

We are so excited to be able to be all back together again! Because, as of tonight, the gathering number restrictions under the Red Traffic Light setting have eased. So we can meet as one congregation again.

This coming Sunday (April 10th) will therefore be a bit of a celebration. And you are more than welcome to join us for it!

We meet at 95 Percival Street, at 9:30am.

Once more, all together now…

Galatians – A Passion for the Gospel

When something really matters, it is natural to be passionate about it. That is exactly the case with the letter to the Galatians – a letter written by the Apostle Paul to a group of churches he loved, penned only about 20 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus. This very early letter is full of the urgency of someone speaking about something that really matters to a group of people he really cares about.

That in itself makes it a great read. But what makes this letter essential is that the thing Paul as so urgent about – the gospel of Jesus Christ – remains vital and precious for us today.

God has worked through this powerful letter to do extraordinary things over the last 2000 years. And we are excited to see what he does with us as we open it up, starting this Sunday.

We’d love to have you join us.
