- Who we are
- What we do
At last Sunday’s Annual General Meeting I was delighted to announce that David Slocombe has accepted my invitation to join our staff team as Parish Administrator.
David will assist me by helping our church manage our many projects and people, as we seek to be as efficient and wise with the resources with which the Lord has provided us.
We thank God for David’s willingness to provide his time for this role on an honorary (volunteer) basis, and we look forward to seeing how this will help our church manage the growth we have been experiencing under the hand of God.
Please pray for David in this important role, and pray for Lydia, Adam and I as we work together as a staff team to glorify God through the ministry we share with all God’s people in Oak Flats Anglican.
This week marks the beginning of a new era in teaching Scripture at Oak Flats High School, as Adam Hotson, our assistant minister, joins me as together we teach the Bible to over a hundred students each week in years 7 and 8.
Last year I only taught each year 7 class once per fortnight, but this year I’m teaching those year 7 students every Friday, and Adam is teaching all the year 8 scripture students every week as well.
This is a significant jump in the face-to-face Bible teaching in our local high school, and we pray that it is a blessing to the students, the staff, and the whole school, as the gospel of grace wafts around the classrooms and playgrounds.
Please pray for Adam and me as we seek to teach well the truths of the gospel, and pray for the school staff who support us with such warmth and energy.
Pray also that through this ministry, many people would grow to a deeper understanding of the cross of Christ, so that they might repent and believe in the real Jesus, and find real hope in him.
