A few weeks ago, 60 youth and leaders from St Michael’s spent a weekend in Katoomba at KYCK Youth Convention. What an encouragement it was to join with over 2,000 youth from around NSW and beyond, hearing from God’s Word, singing together and being equipped to boldly live the Christian life. Many of our youth…

What’s the Answer?

Ministries, View from the pew

Who created God? Why does God kill people? What about dinosaurs? Will our pet dog be in Heaven? Will there be surfing in Heaven? Is Grandma in Heaven? Children have some of the best questions! Their curiosity and thirst for knowledge is something so special. Many of us lose it as we get caught up…

Thinking of Others at Christmas

View from the pew

As we approach Christmas, I can’t help but notice the selflessness that this time of year inspires in each of us. Believer and non-believer alike, we’re encouraged to stop and think of others if only for a moment to consider what they might like, what brings them joy, what will provide satisfaction for them.

The 4E’s, three terms into 2018!

View from the pew

Engage, evangelise, establish and equip… As one not well practised in sitting and waiting patiently for the Lord, and with no solid employment plans as 2018 began, I enrolled in a unit of theological study!

How often do we stop and thank God for his good gifts to us? We asked our church family members to share something they’re thankful to God for in the lead-up to our annual Thanksgiving Day (this Sunday 16 September).

Sermon Listening and Learning

View from the pew

Earlier this year I bought a copy of the Sermon Notebook (published by Matthias Media). And after my first week using it, the Sermon Notebook was my new favourite thing. So here’s what I love about it. First of all, there are the practical considerations. I take notes during sermons. They help me to concentrate…

The (Distant) View from the Pew

View from the pew

“Hola” from Viña del Mar, Chile! We have been here for 5 months now and we have been wonderfully welcomed by both Christian family and non-Christian friends alike. With the internet, the other side of the world is not as far as it used to be, but there are still things that remind us we are…
