'Always read the label' Mother's Day Service

‘Always read the label’ Join us for a great morning as we celebrate Mother's day.

-Special Morning Tea-

Over the years we have all pick up ‘labels’ , some of these labels we wear are not so easily removed. Branded in your heart and engraved on the walls of your mind lay these horrible names. Names and labels we were called or even assumed. Soon enough, we begin believing these lie’s and names. they become the thoughts we thing and the beliefs we carry, seeping deep into the patterns of our lives. We allow these labels to define us, change us, and place limits on us.

Let’s not forget our identity, ‘whose’ we are and who we were created to be!

If we are to recognise our original, TRUE names, we must retrain our mind. Break up with the voices inside labeling us with these lies. Because to the Father YOU ARE…Accepted, Beautiful, Chosen, Dearly loved, Forgiven….Enough!

In Christ we have been given new, Truth-filled, life-giving labels to wear.

Easter Sunday Celebration Service

'God in Control' 

10am Celebration Service

Join us this Easter Sunday as we Celebrate our Risen Saviour

Easter Egg Hunt & Activity for the kids

While darkness seemingly won on Good Friday, light proved to be more powerful on Easter Sunday.  While we consider death to be the last word, God’s power proved that love is the last word.  How do we know?  Because He lives.  Because Jesus lives within our hearts, and he wants to have a relationship with every one of us. 

We can have faith in this: on the darkest of days, God was, and is still in control.

How it works: Pairs/Couples attend 3 dinners (if possible) Each couple will host a main course for 6 people, take an entrée for 6 people and take a dessert for 6 people on different nights (so you only have to prepare ONE part of the meal each dinner). You’ll dine with different people each time.  You don’t have to be MasterChef, its about quality time spent with others.  These are fun evenings and a great way to get to know people better. 

We had heaps positive feedback from those that joined in last year so we    really encourage you to participate.…SIGN UP TODAY with Shelley or Roz!
