BREAKING OF BREAD AND WORSHIP SERVICE
Our Worship Service is held every Sunday from 9:30 am to 10:30 am in an unstructured manner. During this time we seek to remember the saving work the Lord Jesus accomplished on the Cross by celebrating the Lord’s Supper – the breaking of bread and sharing of wine – as he instructed [1 CR 11:24-26].
The service is also spent in personal reflection, prayer and the sharing of hymns and thoughts from the Word of God. Any brother, particularly those who are spiritually gifted in public ministry of the Word, are encouraged to take part inaudible worship. We seek to afford those brothers who are gifted in this way the opportunity to exercise this talent for public speaking.
Family Service and Sunday School
After a morning tea break, we come together again from 11:00 am in a more family-friendly format to sing hymns and choruses and provide an opportunity for our younger members to participate. Our Sunday School programme is an integral part of this service, catering for primary to high school-aged youth. Each class is fully supervised and lessons are grounded in Biblical principles.While the children are enjoying their classes, parents and adults are welcome to stay to hear the Word preached by each week’s speaker. See the calendar for details on upcoming sermon topics, or visit our library to download past sermons.
Starting at 6:00 pm, and run in a similar format to our Family Service (but without Sunday School), our Evening Service is perfect for those who can’t make the earlier meetings, or who just want to continue worshipping and hearing the Word preached in the company of other believers. We’re often privileged to host a range of guest speakers, topics, DVD screenings and activities such as sausage sizzles unique to this time slot, so don’t miss out – we’d love to see you!
PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY
The Bible is the only source of knowledge of how to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the only source of divine revelation and power that can sustain you as a Christian in your walk with God. We should read and study the Bible because it is God’s Word to us. The Bible is literally “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God’s very words to us.
KNOW YOUR BIBLE (KYB)
KYB is our women’s study group that meets on Thursdays. KYB studies are used in over 2,000 groups across Australia and are provided by CWCI Australia.
Studies look at a different theme or Biblical book each Term, with breaks over the school holidays. The aim is to deepen and enrich the spiritual lives of women and to build them up in their Christian faith through Bible-based teaching.
Contact us for more information about meeting times and studies, or visit the KYB website for more on the program.
Every Thursday, except on school holidays
9.30 AM onwards
TEENS FOR CHRIST YOUTH GROUP
TFC caters to kids aged 12-17 with a fortnightly program that includes small group devotionals, outings, games, crafts, and many other activities – often involving water and/or other means of getting messy. Outings sometimes involve a cost, but you’ll have all the necessary info well in advance. Parents can rest easy knowing their teens are having a blast and that all supervisors hold current Working with Children checks.
Prayer is a relationship, wherein we humbly communicate, worship, and sincerely seek God’s face, knowing that He hears us, loves us and will respond, though not always in a manner we may expect or desire. Prayer can encompass confession, praise, adoration, supplication, intercession and more. Our prayers must come often and regularly, not from legalistic duty, but from a humble heart, realizing our dependence on God in every aspect of our lives. Prayer is pivotal and essential. Prayer is meant to line us up in His will and with His empowerment. Being faithful in prayer is the essential mechanism for reaching others with the faith. Nothing of value can accrue in you or through you without prayer.
Jesus set the supreme example of surrender and submission to the Father’s will when he prayed for God to spare him from dying on the cross. Because he was fully human, he was fearful and reluctant to experience the agony of the crucifixion. Because he was fully God, he could have refused to die, but instead, in humble trust and submission, he prayed, “may your will be done.”
On the surface, death by crucifixion seemed to end Christ’s ministry. In reality, his death on the cross paved the way for countless believers to receive eternal life by believing in his death and resurrection.
“I John 5:14 – And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:”
“Psalm 34:15 – “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.”
“James 5:16 – Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
8 AM – 9 AM
There are a number of camps each year that our members can take part in. We’ll list all the details here as they come up, including all the necessary registration forms.
We organise guest speakers across the year. These are scheduled throughout the week based on the availability of the speaker, brethren and hall. Many of these speakers are from around the world and are a blessing to us in word and in doctrine. You can get more information about these meetings here.
