Today’s message

Today Pastor Dilan brought the message “Being the church” from 1 Peter 5: 1-7, continuing the sermon series “Living in the in-between”. In this series we are looking at what life should be like for Christians living between their conversion and their future glory (till we go to God or Jesus returns).

Welcome

It’s great to have you join with us today for our online service of worship. We trust that the Lord will minister to you as you worship Him today.
If you are new to this format, the idea is to progressively scroll down this page and join with us as we worship our God together.

We meet in person each Sunday at 10am and we endeavour to get the online version available by 3pm the same day. If you are in Sydney Australia we would love for you to join with us in person if you are comfortable in doing that at this time.
We meet at 23 Conder St Burwood NSW.

Service page coming to an end.

It was a little over a year ago on 22-Mar-2020 that due to Covid-19 we were forced to go online for our services as we were no longer permitted to meet in person. As time progressed the restrictions have ebbed and flowed but we have been able to meet in person again for about 9 months now and also we have been including others in our fellowship on Zoom. This being the case we have decided that the link on the Sunday Worship page will link directly to the message/sermon video rather than the full order of service that we have been providing this past year or so. We are also looking into doing a full live stream of our in person service in the near future.

This change will come into effect from Sunday 2-May-2021. Until then please join with us in worshiping our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as you progress through this page.
