- Who we are
- What we do
It is hard to imagine just what it is like to lose everything in a natural disaster.
Yet, sadly this is the experience that many people share after this week’s extreme fires that have caused such loss to so many people.
We pray for those who have been affected by injuries and deaths, and we pray that God would comfort people as they come to terms with the pain of loss and the upcoming struggle to rebuild their homes and their lives.
Disasters like these remind us that all of us should hunger for the life that is to come, when those who trust in Jesus will see no more tears and mourning.
May these tragic events lead us in our church to show genuine comfort and love for those affected, and may it remind all of us for the need to find refuge in Jesus.

Well, friends, it’s hard to believe it, but it’s now a full year since my family joined the church family at Oak Flats Anglican.
On behalf of Mandy, Liana, Jemimah, Oscar and Hugo, I can certainly say that we give great thanks to God for all that he has done over these wonderful twelve months together.
During this year we have all enjoyed the fruit of knowing Jesus better as his Spirit has taught us through his word, and we bring glory to God the Father for the way we have been grown by him in so many ways.
It is our prayer that the years ahead see more people come to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ so that they might repent and believe in him, and be saved from God’s wrath and be joyfully established in his heavenly church.
And we pray that as he grows us, that God will keep us loving one another as we wait in hope for the returning of Jesus, our blessed saviour.
Grace and peace,
