Dear Church Family,
This week I’ve been mostly enjoying Psalm 27:13-14:
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”
A brief update of things for your prayers and diaries:
1. Praying gathering and walk – this Monday 8pm-9pm (meet at the church building)
Join us to pray for the needs of the world, our neighbourhood and our church. We’ll walk in smaller groups around the neighbourhood to help us pray. Come if you can!

8. Sunday Services
Morning 9.15 and 11:15am services continue our sermon series through the book of Acts. The latter service is live streamed on our youtube channel.
