Why should the Bible drive us and our ministry?

Ministers' letters

A reflection following Peter Adam’s visit. Why do we need the Bible? And why should we still read such an old book? How should we answer those who would ask this kind of question? To say that the Bible itself tells us we should read it can be seen as a circular argument. But if…

‘E’ for Evangelism Stories

Ministers' letters

During the month of April, St Michael’s Mission of the Month is the Uni Bible Group at the University of Wollongong (part of AFES, the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students). Evangelism is the sharp edge of mission on campus. Evangelism is also our current seasonal focus at St Michael’s. Autumn is ‘E’ for Evangelism. To…

Opportunities

Ministers' letters

During the season of autumn, we make ‘E for Evangelism’ our area of extra focus in the ‘4E’ process of disciple-making. (Engaging the community; Evangelising the lost; Establishing believers in the faith; Equipping you for service.) I was encouraged by those who engaged friends with our Walk for Water. (And how good to raise over…

Use your words!

Ministers' letters

We were rescued by God’s word. By His message. Jesus was that message. His message is about love and rescue; rescue from what we deserve, into God’s love, kingdom and family forever. This message is very good news. It is words. As Christians, we were saved by God’s words, likely told to us by someone….

#QuickBibleReacts

Ministers' letters, Social comment

I’m looking for a new hashtag. A hashtag is a phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media to identify messages on a specific topic. Better still if short or witty! You may know I enjoy reading the news, staying in touch with current affairs, as well as theology and ethics. Lately,…

Why Join a Growth Group?

Community, Ministers' letters

To answer the question: ‘Why join a Growth Group?’, we ought to ask what is God’s big plan for the world and for us. God’s big plan for this world is for people to be rescued, and for rescued people to grow. This was the case for God’s people at Colossae; when they trusted the…

What’s Your Vision?

Ministers' letters, Prayer

The summer holidays are almost done. It’s time to start thinking about the new year in earnest. Maybe most of our New Year’s resolutions are already broken, and we’re ready to face reality. School starts this week. Most of our regular ministries at church will start in the next week or two. So, what’s your…

Walk for Water

Community, Events, Ministers' letters

On Saturday 16 February 2019, we’ll have another WaterWorks fundraiser. It also aims at helping us engage with our community. Let’s build on last year’s good will. If you don’t know, WaterWorks is Anglican Aid’s project enabling those in impoverished developing world communities to get access to clean and reliable water supplies and the sanitation facilities…

Summer Psalms

Ministers' letters, Uncategorized

For as long as I’ve been at St Michael’s, we’ve had ‘Summer Psalms’  – a sermon series from the Psalter (book of psalms) in January. But why? Is it because the preachers need a holiday and psalms are easy? Or because they just love alliteration a bit too much? Or maybe because everyone is in…

My New Year’s Resolution

Ministers' letters

I don’t think I’ve ever achieved a New Year’s resolution. Or at least, not long-term! Every year I make a list of self-improvement strategies. Predictably, I plan to get fit and lose some weight; improve my saving and reduce spending; and for once, to stick at a Bible reading plan (yep, you guessed it: for…
