Please join us for worship on Sunday, October 25 at 10.00 am for Holy Eucharist. Our readings are Leviticus 19:1-2,15-18, 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8, and Matthew 22:34-46: It’s all about LOVE! Love your neighbour as yourself, God commands in Leviticus. “So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves,” Paul writes. “On these two commandments” (love God and love your nieghbour) “hang all the law and the prophets,” Jesus says. Here is the order of service. Rev. Chris Easthill will be the celebrant and Robert Vukovic our preacher.
You can join our worship services either in church, or live online (via Facebook Live). You should be able to go straight to the Livestream using this link (even if you do not have a Facebook account – just ignore any attempts to make you register)! Should that not work, please go to our Facebook page here and scroll down until you find the Livestream, which we will start at 9.45 am (the service will start at the usual time of 10.00 am).

For some years now we have been making Christmas (shoe) boxes with Christmas gifts for children in Romania. If you would like to take part, please fill your shoe boxes with selected items from this list. Please bring your (wrapped and packed) shoe boxes to church on Sunday, November 29 (Advent I). We have received a list of children and have prepared slips of paper with the first names, age and gender of the children that you can take out of a box in the entrance of the church. That way, the boxes can be individually addressed (perhaps even with a little card).
