- Who we are
- What we do
One of my strongest childhood memories is going to bed on Christmas Eve, knowing that when I next open my eyes it will be Christmas Day! The feeling of waking up, with the stocking at the end of the day full with toys, is one that is hard to beat.
And now, as my children experience the same anticipation and excitement, I can’t but help sharing the joy of getting what we’ve been waiting for.
For God’s people, the wait for the man who would be their true king, their true saviour, their true redeemer, their true representative, was one that spanned many centuries.
And so you can just start to understand the excitement and joy that would have been felt by the people who heard John the Baptist’s message that the great leader of God’s people was coming… and coming soon.
Today, in our first talk of the sermon series on Mark’s Gospel, ‘Meet the King’, we see just why it was worth waiting for the arrival of Jesus, and why we, today, can share the excitement in meeting the true king of the universe… who loves us and died for us.
We’d love you to join us, especially as we start this new, 23-week series throughout the great Gospel book of Mark.
Over the months of April through to October we’re looking at the life of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Mark.
The series is called, ‘Meet the King’, because in the sixteen, action-packed chapters of Mark’s Gospel we get to meet the true king of the universe, Jesus Christ, and see just what makes him so special.
Here is the plan for the 23 week series. We’d love you to join us to experience the real Jesus as we drill down into the great words recorded in Mark’s Gospel. Read more
Well, it’s been a few weeks since our Real Hope Week, and our resident photographer Paul Burgess has uploaded his best photos… and there’s over 200 of them!
We give thanks to God for the great week we enjoyed together, and pray that it will continue to be a blessing to those in our church and in our wider community. Read more
Our brothers and sisters in North Korea have sent a desperate plea for prayer to Christians around the world. As borders close and the heated rhetoric increases from North Korea, Christians inside this nation are finding the already existing pressure increasing.
With this in mind, North Korean church leaders can only keep watch and ask Christians worldwide to continue to pray for their country. Underground Christians describe the current atmosphere in North Korea as warlike.
Prayer for North Korea is now more important than ever before. Underground Christians in the country are grateful for the strength they receive from believers around the world and urge them to continue upholding North Korea in their prayers.

It’s been a few days since the Real Hope Week hit Oak Flats Anglican, and we’re thrilled with what happened in this action-packed week of reach out to the local community.
One of the team members from Moore College put together this video to give a taste of what happened. It’s from the perspective of the theological students and their role as visiting ministers to our church… but you can get an idea of how much fun they had joining with us during the week.
Please keep praying that God gets all the glory as the impact of that week keeps making waves around our local area.
