“...it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us.”
Acts 15:28

I'm excited to be taking time this Sunday to gather to worship God, celebrate Jesus in communion and share a meal with you all. Alongside our usual, I'm really glad to have our first AGM straight after. Please look past my pastor-humour, "Annual God-led Meeting", to the heart for this gathering.

In Acts chapter 15 we find the Jerusalem church was figuring out how they would move forward despite the challenges that arose both around and within their midst. The phrase, "It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us", provides such a rich framework for Christians to still meet today.

We are blessed to follow a God who values not just thought, but wisdom! He created it. But we are not simply rational, truth-telling machines, but we have been gifted with God's Holy Spirit to guide and comfort us in all things.

As we meet this Sunday I'm asking that you help me create a culture that values gathering to hear from God and each other. We will be brief and on-topic, but we need God's Holy Spirit to ensure we are also led beyond our own wisdom.

Below is a basic agenda. If you are keen to have a voice, all are welcome to become members, but everyone is welcome to attend. We will have Q+A for each segment and also pray at key moments to ensure we are seeking the Holy Spirit's wisdom.

Open in prayer
Affirmation of Eldership recommendation: Prayer
Church Update: finances giving, church report
Our Way Forward: time + location, releasing people in ministry
Closing Prayer / Blessing

Cheers and see you Sunday!


Worship this Sunday

Join us at City Life Baptist (7 Gregson Place, Caloundra) from 4 pm for our monthly gathering for worship and communion!

This Sunday Aimee Hill is leading us in worship! We have some regular songs as well as two that some of us wouldn't have heard for a long time! It's our hope that we can give God the worship he deserves and that every one of us will taste some of his refreshment in our spirits.

Become a Member

As above, we need a group of people willing to become members. Please check out what's required (it's not hard or tricky!) and join us!

Last chance to 1st John this month :)

We are encouraging each other to read the book of 1st John in the Bible this month. If you're a bit late to the party or don't read much, why not download the Bible App and listen along with their free Bible in your pocket?!
