Our mission: to reflect Christ alive in the Community
Greetings to you out there in your homes. As we worship in our homes in the homelands of the Wallumedegal people. We acknowledge their Elders, past and present.
We hope that you will experience the presence of God in and through the Service, privately or as a Family joining with the people of God who continue to gather in Spirit although not physically.


LECTIONARY BIBLE READINGS
Acts 2:42-47, Psalm 23, 1 Peter 2:19-25, John 10:1-10.

PRAYER
God of all power, you called from death our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep: send us as shepherds to rescue the lost, to heal the injured, and to feed one another with understanding; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

"As a lifelong hypochondriac, watching everyone freak out over coronavirus makes me feel so seen."



Lent Event 2020.
The total from our congregation was $895. A big thank you to all who contributed from our congregation.

 CCA is seeking more people who aren’t on the Government self-isolation list to
assist ion delivering meals on wheel. Any volunteer must be under 70 and have no health issues. Phone 9858 3222. CCA Eastwood are still seeking foodstuffs for their clients as the need is continuing to grow. Please ring your Elder for assistance in getting it to CCA or direct.


Jesus says he has come to give you life to the full, while others will try to lessen your life. In order to do this Jesus acts as a gate. Sometimes providing us with safety as if we are in a sheep pen, and at other times Jesus leads the sheep (people) out. They hear his voice and follow him.

Here's an exercise you might like to try take a piece of paper and make a list of when you can look/listen out for Jesus’ voice. It could be anywhere. Perhaps it will be when you are with people like your friends, parents or family and work or school colleagues.  Perhaps it will be a time like in the morning when you get up, during the day as you go about your daily tasks or when you reflect on the day in the evening.

You know what they’re saying about 2020. It went viral faster than anyone thought it would.

 What’s the difference between COVID-19 and Romeo and Juliet? One’s the coronavirus and the other is a Verona crisis.
