It’s great to share with you at church today. Please make yourself known to our staff & ushers if you are visiting so we can warmly welcome you.
Calling all Potential Musicians and Singers!
Josh & Hayley Leong, from our Arvo Church, have offered to move to 930 Family church with their children so that Josh can assist us with our music for the immediate time. David Croucher and Jessamy Dalton will also be playing at 930 Church on a rostered basis. We are very grateful to them for this. Josh has also offered to chat with and possibly coach anyone who might be a potential singer or musician. No – you won’t be asked to play in church the following week or dropped in the deep end. Josh is keen to encourage future musos and singers – young or old. You can contact him on 0408627282 or come for a chat at church on Thursday 25th Feb at 7.30pm.
Our Annual Parish Meeting – will be held Thursday 3rd March at 7.30pm – not to be missed. This is always a great night in our church year.
Inspirational Birthday Party
One of our members recently celebrated a significant birthday recently and decided that instead of presents that guests were invited to make a gift to the Brownings’ ministry with the poorest of Africa. $100’s were raised – awesome effort. Just another way of making a difference – a difference Jesus inspires.
Our Mission with SMBC
We met this week with the students from Sydney Missionary and Bible College who will be sharing mission with us from 12-20th March. What a great team of young men and women they are. There are 9 guys and 3 women – are you able to host one in your home? Please let us know asap. Can you help prepare and serve a simple lunch for them at church? Please see our staff today or send us a message.
The team will be led by SMBC lecturer & former CMS missionary Anthony Brammall – it’s great to reconnect with Anthony who was a link missionary with Gymea 15 years ago.
PS – Mark Hadfield now in his third year of training at SMBC and Beverley Hills Parish sends his love to us all and thanks for the farewell gift ($150 voucher for Koorong books). He is going on mission in March to Broken Hill and would love us to pray for him!
Keeping the Vision Alive … Re-envisioning Day 21st May!
About two years ago our Parish finalised our Parish Vision. This May, many of our leaders will gather again on Saturday morning to assess our Vision and fine tune it for the next 2-3 years. What is distinctive about Gymea Anglican? Who do we believe God wants us to be? Where does he want us to go over the next 2-3 years. Please pray for this vital time and that we would be true to the vision he has given us in Christ, through His word.
Survey members in April – as part of the re-envisioning process we will be surveying our members in April to get your feedback. Our Vision is overseen by our VIOG team – Julia Harrison, Brielle Buckley Allan Watson and Bob East. So please chat with them about any of your ideas or suggestions.
Your brother in Christ and pastor, Graham Crew
