Hi Church Family,
It was encouraging to hear from Dan Andrews earlier in the week regarding the way forward for Victoria as the government starts to ease COVID-19 restrictions. Being able to have some family and friends over is a big relief. I hope you are going ok and finding time to stay in touch with each other. If you would like a pastoral visit, or prayer or would like to chat about anything at all please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or on my mobile (0408 942 145) I’m looking forward to being able to get back out to ‘The Paddock’, however I think it will still be quite some time before we can meet as a larger group.
In the meantime, we will continue to gather together on ZOOM at 10:30am every Sunday… BYO Coffee and Morning Tea (not to share)

This Sunday we will be continuing our Matthew series as we finish chapter 15 with verses 21 – 39. Here we see Jesus interaction with a Canaanite Woman who displays great faith. It is interesting to consider the reaction of Jesus disciples in this case. What were they thinking? How would you and I have reacted in the same circumstance? After this interaction we see Jesus compassion, as great crowds of people come to him and he heals them and then performs another food miracle by feeding the multitude with seven loaves and a few small fish. What do you find significant in these verses? I keep going back to verse 31 where it says… ‘And they praised the God of Israel’
During the Zoom service we will also have time to Worship through singing and prayer and we will have a chat to a couple of old friends.
I'm looking forward to sharing this time together with you :-)
Please don’t forget that we can still directly deposit tithes and offerings into the Church bank account during this time. Donations for the building maintenance works can also be deposited into this account with the reference to ‘Building’ so that it goes towards that fund. The details are below…

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NLT)
Blessings to you as you follow Jesus,
