Thankfulness

Ministers' letters, St Michael's Women, Women's ministry

What does it mean to be truly thankful? Thinking about gratitude and thankfulness and focusing on the positive aspects of life in order to increase our happiness has become common in recent years. It is good for us to be thankful. But is that it? Is thankfulness just a habit that will make us happier?…

Thank you from 11am EEC!

Ministers' letters

11am Church would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone at St Michael’s. It has taken effort and sacrifice from the whole church for us to begin, and to begin so well. This would not have happened without so many from all over St Michaels helping in many ways; 8am now finish at…

Term 2 – E for Evangelism

Ministers' letters

Term 2’s focus at St Michael’s is E for Evangelism. This week someone asked me how it was going. As it happened, he asked me at the WCCEB Coffee and Dessert Night, and it was so encouraging to hear that in 2017, our local high school Scripture board has been able to place a new…

The Social Church: Using Facebook to share the Gospel

Ministers' letters, Missions, View from the pew

  I’m going to start with a couple of controversial statements:  It’s easier than ever to share the gospel. You can be a missionary in one of the world’s largest “countries”, today! Sometimes we use work or busyness as an excuse for not sharing the gospel. We even (embarrassingly) admit that because we spend so…

Prayerful dependence

Ministers' letters

Ephesians 6:18 says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” In my Minister’s Letters throughout 2017, I am spending some time unpacking each of the “Values” in St Michael’s “Vision 2020” statement….

Conferences, KYCK and conversions…

Ministers' letters

The Christian calendar is full of varied yet wonderful conferences; perhaps too many to choose from. Sometimes we must be careful not to go to so many that we aren’t present locally for our own Church, mission and personal evangelism. St Michael’s youth are strong attenders of a few conferences, camps and events. And KYCK…

Minister’s Letter – The Public Reading

Bible Readings, Ministers' letters, News & Prayer

Facebook currently says it’s one year since my Long Service Leave in America. There I was privileged to attend 7 services and 3 Bible study groups at 5 churches. All were friendly and Bible-based, with the gospel of Jesus central. But, at least to my way of thinking, something was missing: Bible-reading in church! In my Minister’s…

Humility: what we all don’t know we need!

Ministers' letters

Smart. Charismatic. Strong. Confident. Popular. Powerful. These are just some of the many characteristics that this world looks up to. This world holds up achievements and character traits on a pedestal that is above no other. And, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be sucked in to thinking just like this. But this is not…

Search the Scriptures

Ministers' letters

Friends, recently a very good friend of mine, working in a Christian organisation, reported this story from a colleague: She said, “I’m a signs person. My sign is butterflies. When I need to make a decision, I pray that God will show me a butterfly. And yesterday a butterfly came in through the door with…

Dealing with Pornography

Ministers' letters

There are many reasons why pornography is harmful. It distorts our view of sex, it damages our relationships, it costs us time, it undermines God’s mission and our witness to Christ, it offers satisfaction but instead delivers enslavement. There are many more reasons why pornography is harmful but I want to highlight another reason from…
