Message from Ps Carl Sepssy:
Congratulations: to Mary Mills and John Mayall on their recent engagement! As a Church, we are delighted for you both and wish you God’s blessing for your future together. May God lead, guide and bless you both abundantly in Jesus’ name.
Prayer: Thanks to all those who attended the prayer meeting for marriage on Tuesday September 12th. We also had a national day of prayer and fasting on this day. Twenty five people turned up, and prayer was powerful at the Thomas’ home. Thank you to Sharon and Trevor for hosting us; we had a wonderful supper afterwards! Prayer life group meets twice monthly at the Thomas’ home; let’s keep the attendance up and keep praying earnestly for a “No” vote to prevail as results will be revealed in November. Please continue to pray for: Our Nation Australia, Righteous Government – at all levels, the Family and the Church.
Daylight Savings: Please remember that clocks go forward one hour from Sunday 1st October 2:00am onwards.

Worship Team: We had a great team meeting that led into communion after Church on Sunday September 17th. Thanks to all the team, coordinators and leaders who do an outstanding job. We fare-welled Peter Richardson and thanked him for all his hard work and dedication in the team, serving on sound, as he stepped down that Sunday. Thank you so much Peter. Zayne McIntosh has taken up the role of Sound Leader/Coordinator as of September 17th. Thanks Zayne for your commitment to the team and for taking up this position. John Mayall has also taken up the role of Assistant Worship Ministry Leader which is a real blessing for the team and the Church. John will be assisting Kerrie and leading services. Thanks so much John; it’s been a real blessing to see you grow in the Lord these last 12 months.
