Make Christmas Great Again!

Ministers' letters

Are you fed up with Christmas even before it’s here? Your eyes roll at the commercialism as you see the Christmas decorations go up earlier and earlier each year. You feel the pressure of Christmas shopping when the signs in the shops advise you that you’ve only got 6 weeks left until Christmas. And if…

New seasons for the 4Es

Ministers' letters

Unless you are brand new, you are probably getting the hang of how our “4E discipleship process” goes: E for Engage. We seek to engage the community, individually and as a church. E for Evangelise. We share the gospel of Jesus (evangelism) with people who do not know Christ, again individually, and via church activities…

One-to-One Bible Reading

Ministers' letters

As I prepared for the Ministry Training Week I was reminded of the many places where we, as the body of Christ, are called to love each other by encouraging and building each other up in our faith. We see this mutuality expressed in the instruction to spur one another on towards love and good…

Ministers' letters

Friends, every so often, a sermon raises the question of whether or not the ‘Law’ from the Old Testament still applies to Christians… And if so, then how? A ban on prawns? For example, the Sabbath law – to rest from work and remember the Lord – is driven back to how the world was…

United and Thankful

Ministers' letters

‘So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, established in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.’ So said the apostle Paul to the Christians in Colossae almost 2000 years ago, to encourage them to press on in Christ…

E for Establish

Ministers' letters

In school term 3, our focus at St Michael’s is E for Establish! We want to see people established more deeply in the faith. The Macquarie Dictionary says to ‘establish’ is to ‘set something on a firm or permanent basis’. We want your faith in Jesus to be firm! What does it mean to be…

The Best Stuff

Ministers' letters

What good is Christianity? What do we get out of it? How does it help in real life? I remember a church in Nairobi, whose slogan was “We are a real church for real problems for real people. Are you struggling with life? Come to Jesus and know victory!” God’s rescue of us through Jesus…

Break the Drought

Ministers' letters

Photo of the Tamworth landscape (taken 30.6.18). Photo by Hannah Sun. Drought has been on my mind recently. Over a quarter of a century ago, I married into a farming family. Suddenly I was more interested in watching the rain gauge. Living on the coast, you may recall we had a very dry start to…
