Pastor Shane and Kathryn Murray


Hello church and welcome to the school holidays!

It has been a very busy term and I am sure many people are looking forward to a break and some time with family to be refreshed and prepared for term four.  Thank you so much to all those who tirelessly serve His awesome church: the Polka Tots leaders, Life Group leaders, those who volunteer for cleaning, serving in kids church, on the door, on the Music Team etc. etc.  Together we are partnering with Him to build His church and we do this well!

As announced, term four will see a different format for Kids church (ages 3 - 12 yrs).  They will head out after communion for a 30 minute programme.  This will give a needed break to our volunteers and help spread the load.  Also, I'm excited that our children will be in for worship and be able to participate with the parents in communion.  This can only be healthy as we teach and lead our children to follow after Jesus.

Let's work together to make this transition healthy for all.

Have a great break!

Bless you church
Pastor Shane
