Join us this weekend for our gathering in Ngunnawal Primary School Hall from 10:30am.
10:30am service at Ngunnawal School Hall.
The first 10 minutes of our gathering will include music playing and connecting with one another. Seating will be configured to allow households to sit together. Just as you might safely and warmly invite someone into your home you can invite others into your household seating.

Ministry Intern – Tara: Tara has reached the halfway point of her ministry internship with MTS. In this last month she has taken on as an internship ‘project’, implementation of the updated Breaking The Silence policy for safe ministry. She is doing an amazing job. But the most significant thing is her quiet dedication to personal godliness and pastoral discipleship of women. The internship is funded by individual financial supporters and a small scholarship from PCNSW METRO. New Life commends her to you for regular and one-off financial support. Our tax deductible gifts will help her launch into 2022 without having to think too much about money.
Church Budget: Committee of Management draws your attention to this financial report (below) on giving and expenses. A budget presentation will be made to New Life on Sunday morning. To update or commence your financial partnership with New Life, use the button below.
Community prayer concerns
- Christmas Tears: Please remember in prayer those who are feeling sadness of family breakdown, travel restrictions, bereavement, extended sickness, financial loss or empty anniversaries this Christmas.
- Church Finances: Please pray that while our congregation is drawn back together from being scattered in 2020-2021 that giving to New Life will be less scattered too.
- Tara P: Give thanks for God’s sustaining of Tara and her family through a 1st year ministry internship with all she has learned, grown in and given in service to those around her at New Life.
