Please join us for New Life at Home, LIVE on YouTube and Facebook from 9am every Sunday morning.
Around 50 people gathered at the church building for morning tea last Sunday after NewLife@Home. There will be more opportunities to gather as we ease out of lockdown. While all plans are ‘in pencil’ now (but never for God!) we are confident these will land us together in 2022. Here are some of the details…
Picnic Church with Lord’s Supper – 14 November: 10:30am on grass behind church building (107 Wanganeen Ave, Ngunnawal). BYO morning tea, Lord’s Supper bread/juice and picnic rug/chair. There is some parking in NewLife carpark and ACT Health Clinic. Street parking nearby around Ngunnawal Neighbourhood Oval, also in Kanbi Pl and Balbo Pl. We will do another Picnic Church in December if we are unable to return to the Hall.

Staff update: Brock was back on Monday and Russell was released from quarantine on Wednesday. Thanks for your prayers and provision of rest for Brock. Thanks for the kind generosity of a vacant apartment for Russell instead of camping the full week.
Community prayer concerns (contact Russell to share your concerns for prayer here)
- Relocations: Please pray for NewLife members who are preparing to move away from Canberra over summer: England family to Adelaide; McAulay family to Southern Highlands.
- Shelley K: Several weeks unwell in hospital and rehab. Pray for God’s healing and holding of her in faith as others care for her.

Grace and peace,
