New Life at Home is LIVE on YouTube and Facebook from 9am every Sunday morning.
We have a temporary opportunity to meet in the School Hall on Sundays. With the uncertainty of the weather, the Elders and Staff have decided to abandon Picnic Church and accept the limitations of meeting in the School Hall while we can.
It won’t yet be like it was before lockdown, but will enable us to warmly engage with one another around God’s Word, celebrate Jesus and see our place in the ‘flock’ God has secured us in.
5 December & 12 December
10:30am services 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.
Please bring a bible, morning tea and drinks for yourself. Side doors will be open for ventilation so dress warmly if weather is cool.
There won’t be a band and singing on 5 December, but plan to add this on 12 December ahead of Carols on 19 December and Christmas Day celebration.
