Welcome to remote church!
As we continue to meet together remotely, some of the CONNECT Groups have returned to meet together while others continue to meet by video. It seems different groups have different needs.
In our sermon this week, we will look at wives and husbands and the difficult situation many have in this life. I hope it is an encouragement to those who struggle in their marriage situation. I also hope it is helpful for others as they consider how to support people when they ask for support.
This week appears to be international Mission week, which is a nice follow-on from our Mission Sunday last week.
On Wednesday night, a group of people followed-up my Facebook request for anyone interested in being involved with the GAFCON video conference. It was a great time of being challenged by some amazing speakers, and some very interesting updates. It is sad that heresy and liberalism is spreading through the Anglican Church across the globe. It is good that we can support churches who want to remain faithful to traditional Anglicanism and not be forced to sit in Anglican Churches where the Bible is ignored, or worse. A big thank you to all those who attended.
In our Church Newsletter is news of video debates by Rev Samuel Green of Tasmania who will be debating Muslim clerics. He seeks to challenge them to see the importance of Jesus, even in their own religion. Samuel is gifted and excellent debater. Simon Rattray (who spoke to our church about International Mission prior to COVID) will have a Zoom meeting with a Church Pastor from overseas who is doing remarkable to things. Pastor G is his name, and he once smuggled 1 million bibles into one country over night. This sounds like a very exciting story. If you have video, the link is in the article in the newsletter, but if you don’t, you may want to talk to me about having this shown in church on the evening of June 30.
Grace and peace.
