- all about following Jesus. We are a community of imperfect people who have experienced the love and forgiveness of a wonderful God. We are a local expression of God’s eternal and universal church, called to be God’s people who love, worship, glorify, and serve our living King, Jesus Christ;
- part of the Assembly of Confessing Congregations of the Uniting Church, joining with other Uniting Church congregations in contending for the Biblical faith: Confessing the Lord Jesus Christ, Proclaiming the Truth and Renewing the Church; and
- “evangelical” Christians, which means that Jesus shapes the heart of our worship, the Bible shapes the heart of our life, and the Gospel (the Good News about Jesus) shapes our heart for a broken world.
Our Statement of Faith & Core Values
A Message from Rev Ian Weeks
Our Present and Eternal Hope!
“We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.” Psalm 33:20 – 22
Hope is a valuable gift. It sustains us, helping us to endure in the midst of adversity, hardship and suffering. It keeps us going in those times when we feel like giving up. Hope keeps us focused on that which is yet to come so we can stand firm in the present.
The current restrictions continue to prevent us from doing many things, but there are signs they are being loosened, and maybe it will not be too long before we are free to enjoy worshipping together again. Hope!
The resurrection of Jesus gives us hope. Hope in God’s power, promises and faithfulness. Hope not only for our eternal security, but also a hope that makes a difference in the present. As C S Lewis writes, “Hope is one of the Theological virtues. This means that a continual looking forward to the eternal world is not (as some modern people think) a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do. It does not mean that we are to leave the present world as it is. If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next.”
We are people of hope! So, I hope you will continue to endure with hope and look forward with hope, as we wait on the Lord.
God bless you, Ian Weeks
