Sunday 4th April 2021
Easter Sunday

Minister's message

There are moments in life that shape who you are - like the day I gave up cabinet making and stated working for the church, or the day that Suzanne and I got married, and of course the birth of each of our 3 children.

These are moments that form me into who I am. Like an artist putting a new layer of paint onto a canvas, my life takes shape and continues to be formed.

In a Christian's life, this weekend is one of those moments of formation. The Easter weekend shapes our faith. We are Easter people, formed by Christ’s death and resurrection.

May you allow the power of this story to refresh you again and lift you into the fullness of life that Jesus offers.

Blessings,
Richard

We have moved the Youth Holiday Club from the original date of 6th April due to the weather forecast. Join us instead on Friday April 16th for a fun day of outdoor activities on the Gosford waterfront!

Service Rosters: May-Oct

Many thanks to those who have already volunteered to help out with our next round of rosters.

If you are able to help, please fill in a form. They are available at church or via this link: Online Roster Form
The Uniting Church NSW/ACT Synod is starting a new program called Growing Young, which aims to help the church consider how young people are included and discipled within the life of the church.

They have invited us to participate in this program and our leadership team has taken up the offer.

As a result we are asking you to complete this GROWING YOUNG SURVEY sometime over the next 3 weeks. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to finish.

If you don't have an email or computer please contact the church office so we can arrange for someone to help you.

We hope this process will help us nurture and encourage the young people in our church community.
