Christmas starts with Christ. An obvious point for a church to make, perhaps but apparently one that needs making these day.
Our Christmas series will be answering some essential questions about Jesus and Christmas. Join us, and see why Christmas really does start with Christ.
As we work through the month, you’ll be able to click on the titles to listen to the recordings of our messages.
|1st||10:30am||Why did Jesus come to the Earth?|
|8th||10:30am||Why Jesus came as he did|
|15th||10:30am||Why Jesus came as a Baby (Family service)|
|22nd||10:30am||Why Jesus came to the people He did|
|22nd||5pm||Christmas Special: Carols & Hog Roast.|
|24th||11:30pm (‘Midnight’ service)||Why Jesus’ coming is still Good News!|
|25th||10:30am||Why Jesus must come again!|
In shock news today, we’re planning ahead and can exclusively reveal to both of our readers the program for the next few weeks, leading up to Ascension Sunday:
|21st April||Being Pentecostal Christians||Acts 2:1-21|
|28th April||Knowing his great power within us||Ephesians 3:7-20|
|5th May (Family Service)||The rushing power of the wind||Acts 2:1-21|
|12th May||The counsellor has come||John 15:26-27|
|19th May||A first hand experience||Acts 2:1-21 & 40|
|26th May||Go Go Go||Matthew 28:16-20|
Just to remind you (you’ll have missed the announcement on Sun morning, as we didn’t make one) that this Sunday (16th) evening we will be pausing our truth project series to start the first of our special Christmas services. Pudding & Praise will be starting earlier, at 5:30 (pm, not that much earlier).
You should be able to guess, but I’ll spell it out anyway – the evening will include Christmas themed praise and (wait for it…) pudding! I’d guess that means cake, but I’m actually a little unclear on the details at this point.
Rest assured though I’m working hard to get more information for you.
Our other services over Christmas are as follows:
16th – am service as usual 10:30 am
16th – pm service ‘Puddings & Praise’ at 5:30
23rd – Family service 10:30 am, no evening service
24th – candelight* service 11:30 pm – midnight.
25th – Christmas celebration 10:30 (about 30-45 mins normally).
30th – Morning service as usual 10:30, no evening service.
Back to normal on the 6th Jan.
* Presence of actual candlelight likely, but not guaranteed.

It appears that summer is finally upon us, so I’m breaking out the sunflower picture again to announce our summer schedule. Unlike some churches we don’t shut everything down for the summer, but unlike others we don’t keep everything going. Actually, that’s probably like most churches but we like to sound different.
So, back to the point, here’s out summer schedule for 2012:
Sun: Morning service 10:30
No Childrens work, but there is a childrens message each week and anyone below secondary school age will be taken out during the adult message for refreshments and games, so they don’t get too bored.
Sun: No evening service for the moment – they’ll restart on 8th Sept.
Tues: House groups, see individual leaders for details.
Wed: Prayer meeting continues as usual.
Fri: Parent & Toddlers continues as usual (10:30)
Sat: Momentum/CVM monthly mens breakfast 11th Aug & 8th Sept. Check back for details as we’ll likely be out & about somewhere.
Good Friday, we have a communion service at 10:30am.
There is no Mums & Toddlers group this week, being Good Friday. JAM & the Edge are both off during the school Easter Holidays.
Easter Sunday we have our celebration service also at 10:30. I’m reliably informed there will be egg shaped treats for the children.
Our Easter Sunday sermon will be entitled “Has anyone ever seen a creme chicken? If not, where do the eggs come from?”*
There won’t be an evening service on Easter Sunday.
*may not be actual sermon title…
