Flowers in memory of Isobel Newell

The flowers for this morning’s worship were in memory of Isobel Newell, one of our long term and much loved parishioners who died this time last year. They made a beautiful backdrop for our quiet 8 am worship and reminded us at the 9.30 am service led by children that we share the life of Christ here on earth with the old and young, and with the saints in heaven. May Isobel rest in peace and rise in glory.

Jesus Feeds - Our Sunday Worship last week

The theme of our Sunday worship last week 14 October was Jesus Feeds where we heard the story of the loaves and the fishes and talked about what might be in God’s lunchbox - love, creation, encouragement and life. Our prayers were in the shape of fishes, pinned to a net, as we prayed for God’s love and grace to reach those in need and those we are praying for.

 Some folk from our family service organising group this month, pose for a photoshoot with the fish and the net after the service. Great time, everyone!

New Guinea Martyrs - The Courage to Love

On Sunday 2nd September we celebrate the courage and love of the New Guinea Martyrs - twelve ordinary people who showed great love.  Two were PNG nationals, most were Australian and a couple were English.  These 12 Anglicans were among 333 others who were martyred during WWII.  They show us that no matter how young or old, or ordinary we may be, we too can play a part in showing courageous love and revealing God's loving presence.
