- Who we are
- What we do
To help us understand what is happening on the ground in South Sudan, here is an excerpt of a letter from the Archbishop of South Sudan, who writes to ask the worldwide Anglican church “to pray for us and lobby your governments to come in to end this senseless war.” He continues:
The crisis began as a political struggle… but it turned into a military struggle which later on took the dimension of ethnic problems. And we as the Church are deeply concerned and worried that if the situation is not contained it will lead into chaos which will be uncontrollable. Also we are worried that the fighting may turn into genocide or ethnic cleansing. […]
Also do appeal to some charitable organisations and agencies to please help alleviate the affected people as some of them are now dying of hunger, diseases such as diarrhoea and malaria, particularly the children. Although there are some NGOs present providing some assistance, the humanitarian crisis has reached a breaking point.
Please pray for South Sudan, and give online via the Anglican Aid special appeal, or in marked gifts via our church collection bags.
As the new year begins, our church is delighted to welcome Adam, Anita, Nick, Noah and Chloe Hotson as Adam joins our ministry team as our Assistant Minister.
Adam has spent the past four years studying at Moore Theological College in preparation for this full-time position, adding to his two full-time years studying at Youthworks College, plus a decade serving on ministry teams in churches.
Adam’s main areas of focus will be youth ministry and evangelism.
He will oversee the ministry in our church to teenagers and young people, serving in our on-site programs, as well as our schools-based scripture teaching and lunchtime groups.
He is also seeking to engage, enthuse and equip us all in evangelism as we work together to bring the gospel of Jesus to those who live in the suburb of Oak Flats, the region of Shellharbour, and beyond.
As William Carey, the father of modern missions once said, “expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.”
