GREAT NEWS R.E. THE GOOD NEWS 


WEBPeterGayle


Last Monday I had the privilege of attending the Christianity Explained Course that is being run on Monday mornings at the Community Foodcare Centre

Walking in, I received the customary friendly greeting as guests and visitors chatted and embraced over tea, coffee and snacks.

The young Barista (Peter Dean) took my order while I chatted to people attending the course. The room felt full, even crowed as we huddled in to hear the message.

Most weeks we have 25 people coming along and hearing the good news of the gospel. The event is hosted by Gayle and Peter Dean and their team which includes Grace City Church members.

When we kicked off, visitors eagerly listened in as Gayle excellently went through the truth about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It felt like people were really leaning in and listening intently, you could almost hear the cogs turning as they processed everything Gayle said. She so excellently made the gospel so simple and apparent to all who heard it; she looked in her element!!

There were questions and contributions, back and forth from different members, it felt like a real atmosphere of learning. People felt hungry to find out more and keen to come back next week.

It’s amazing to be part of a church that looks to reach out and bless the community we live in. It’s exciting to think of the fruit that the gospel is bearing. 

Well done Peter and Gayle for running Foodcare so well. Thanks for your vision and hard work.

Blessing Fisher Rd School 


WEBFisherRDGiftDay

 Last week in Love Dee Why we had the privilege to bless Fisher Rd School, a school that provides education for kids with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. 

Besides building a sensory pathway and a deck, we gave them twenty-four thousand dollars from the Gift Day offering.

Thanks to all the volunteers and to all the church for your generosity:)

Together we can do more!

BAPTISM

 

This week in Chatswood we had the privilege of baptising 5 people, what a great moment!

The whole occasion was a little 'out of the box’. We held the baptisms in Carey and Helen’s heated spa which was great considering just how cold it was. Although it was an initial challenge to get people under the water in the shallow spa, we made it in the end. We topped the celebration off with a great lunch together. 

Around 80ppl attended the event and most were visitors, some believers, but not all which was very encouraging. The five people were completely different. Some have been waiting quite some time to get baptised and finally took the plunge (pardon the pun). One was a new convert who wanted to take the next step of faith. The other had converted from their Muslim faith and been connected with us via ESL. They were very keen to get baptised but since leaving a Muslim country not long ago has not been connected with a church until now. 

So it’s great news, and we are praying for lots more of the same in the future.
