It is hard to believe that the time to say “good-bye” has come.
While we would love to continue with you here, it is not possible because last year we promised to look after the Anglican Church in Randwick while their minister takes some long-service leave in June and July. It is a commitment that we feel we cannot break.
It has been nearly 4 months since we first arrived at St Andrew’s, Oak Flats and the time has just flown by. It is sad for us because we feel that we are just starting to get to know you as a congregation.
We have met many faithful and loving Christian people who have made us feel most welcome. We want to thank you all for including us in your fellowship and encouraging us in the service of our Lord Jesus.
Thanks to those who have offered us hospitality, especially the Pratts who have been kind enough to let us sleep over in their home each week.
This is a significant moment in the life of Oak Flats Anglican Church.
The selection of your new Rector is a crucial appointment, so continue to pray for and support your Nominators.
You have an excellent core of experienced and faithful lay leaders to guide you.
Remember to remain united, care for each other and hold onto our Lord Jesus and those fundamental truths which I have spoken to you about.
God bless you and we look forward to hearing good things from Oak Flats.
