In high school, I was a nerd, some may argue that nothing has changed… I surrounded myself with all things sci-fi and fantasy, from Star Wars and Lord of the Rings to superheroes and vampire slayers. I wore those interests on my sleeve, and most of us in my youth group did the same. We…

G’day everyone, Recently Gin and I and the kids were blessed to spend some time in Australia’s eastern most island, New Zealand. What a place. Not a bad view anywhere you looked.

Hi Church, How exciting it’s CHRISTMAS!!! … soon… but it’s that great time of the year and I for one love Christmas and all that goes into it. Is Christmas over commercialised?… Yes… Does it seem to be a lot more about the carnal then the spiritual?… Yes… Do we spend?… I’m not even going…

Hi everyone, As you know recently my brother Matthew has been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer. It was a bit of a shock when we heard the news. Emotions ran free. Questions were asked. And many a prayer was (and still are being) uttered. It is difficult to know exactly what to say and think when…

I love Christmas! It still brings joy, people seem friendlier, families get together when possible, and the Church family get to invite friends and neighbours to the “non-threatening” times of celebration.
