Don't forget, there will be NO service held at the church this Sunday as we are celebrating our 50th Birthday out at the Yarralumla Woolshed. This means there will also be no live streaming of the celebration.
For those who are registered to join us, please don't forget to rug up as we expect it to be a little chilly. The service starts at 11am, with arrivals from 10:30am. There will be someone at the gate to let you in and give you directions. As the Woolshed shares the property with the Equestrian Centre the gate MUST be kept closed so if you arrive before we have someone there please make sure you close the gate behind you.
Lunch will be served around 12:30pm

We are still looking for someone to look after the bottle and cans we collect to support the Alliance Kids sponsor child Doreen.
The cans and bottles need to be taken to Return It Phillip and exchanged for cash. This would need to be done at least once a month and take approximately 1 hour.
If that is you, please contact Antoinette; email@example.com
Watch the video to see how the work of Compassion supports children, their families and communities. Perhaps you might consider child sponsorship as well!
This week (13th) at The Gathering we’ll be showing the movie All Saints.

Please make sure you check in on arrival using the Check in CBR app
Worldwide, 385 million children live in extreme poverty. Poverty robs children of their basic rights to learn, play and grow. In its ugliest form, poverty can lead to exploitation, child labour and even death. It's unacceptable. That's why the Child Sponsorship Program of Compassion exists. Because more powerful than poverty is the hope of Jesus, the care of a local church and the encouragement of you: a loving sponsor.
We tend to forget though that it is a two way relationship. While we are caring for these children physically and spiritually, they are also praying for us! Watch the video of sponsor children praying - it is inspiring and humbling at the same time.
Using the Check in CBR app is now compulsory when attending worship services or any event held at our premises. Make sure you download the app for your phone and check in when you arrive.
Once a year we have an opportunity to give a love offering to God. It is appropriate that it is around the same time as Valentines day. It is your way of being thankful to God for all His blessings. This year our Love Offering will be on 14th February.
Some say that it should be directed to some project with some price tag, I don’t believe that is what it is about! It is a love offering between you and God given to Him through the church. This is not replacing your usual Tithe but and extra offering on top of what you would normally give. Generally, we give from our overflow, may this be a gift from your heart to God’s.
You can give in the following ways
- Direct Debit
- During the service on 14th February
- Clicking on the payment link to pay via Credit Card
2 Corinthians 9:7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
As we continue to minister in these extraordinary days it is important that we encourage and cheer each other on to continue our primary purpose - to make disciples. Reaching everyone, everywhere all the time can still be achieved online and our message will actually get extra traction in days of uncertainty. Many people have had their security rocked, and our ultimate security is the goodness of God and in our Saviour.
This episode focuses on Ps Suanu Ikoro. Suanu tells of a dramatic encounter with God which changed his life forever
