It is with sadness that I let you know that our dear brother, Gordon Orange, passed away peacefully on Monday night.
Gordon has been a member of our church for more than 40 years, and has been the source of great encouragement to us for all those years.
It is sad for us that our brother has passed away from us… but we also have a deep sense of joy, knowing with confidence that he is with our Father in Heaven, free from pain, and released from the sufferings of this life.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Gordon’s funeral service to be held at our church on Monday at 11:00am.
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants.” (Psalm 116:15)
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
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.
It’s only a few sleeps till our ‘Family Fun Night’, and already there’s a buzz around the Oak Flats community.
We’ve got lots of people taking the word to the streets, complete with our fancy green t-shirts, with the ‘Get Real’ on the back.
So, if you’re young, have young people in your family, or are young-at-heart, then make sure you turn up at church at 5pm this Sunday night the 24th of March, for what is shaping up to be a highlight of the Oak Flats Anglican calendar.
Dan Wu is going to speak from the Bible on the topic, ‘Finding Real Hope’, and if you’re a person who hasn’t yet worked out what it means to personally follow Jesus, then you won’t find a better way to understand the basics of Christianity and what Jesus is on about.
We’ll also be having some great music, a clown show, plus a bit of time to pray to God about the things that are on our mind.
The kids will go out during the church service for their own, special kids’ program, which will give them a great chance to hang with others their age to hear about how awesome it is to follow Jesus.
Then, after the church service, the family fun will continue with a whole lot of FREE stuff… free sausage sizzle, free jumping castle, free slushies, free face painting, and a free sticky wall (which is like a jumping castle covered in velcro which you throw yourself at whilst wearing special overalls… too much fun!)
So, come along at 5pm (and a bit earlier to make sure you get a seat!) and hang out with us at 35 Fisher Street for a great night!
On Sunday, as part of our ‘Real Hope Week’, we’re hosting around 20 Moore College students for an eight-day ‘mission’ to connect with the community of Oak Flats and to talk about the real hope in the real Jesus at our Sunday services as well as many other events throughout the week.
On Sunday, we’re up for a treat as Adam Hotson speaks at 9am on the topic ‘Pride and Predjudice’ and as Rob Llewellyn speaks on ‘The Great Reversal’ at 5pm.
Every week is a great Sunday to come along if you’re not yet a believer in Jesus, but the next two are especially good, because we’re going to be making it crystal clear about how to put your trust in Jesus and know the real hope only he can provide.
The Moore College team joining us are one of thirteen teams across the world (yep… you read that right!) and you can track what’s happening across all the mission teams by visiting the specially-designed website at mission.moore.edu.au for details, or use #mooremission in Twitter.
When I first started here at Oak Flats Anglican back in October last year, I was quick to try and find out if our church had its own mission statement.
A mission statement is simply a short and pithy sentence that describes just what it is that any particular organisation is on about.
In other words, it’s kind of like a mini ‘job description’ for the whole organisation, something that tells us what we should and shouldn’t be doing.
When I had a look around, I couldn’t find one. Read more
