Thought of the Week:

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit, John 14:15-20 NLT (Nb. Numbering added to text, see notes below)
“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father(1), and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him(2) and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans(3) —I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live(4).”

1. Jesus offers to pray to the Father for us to receive the Holy Spirit , but those preconditions suggest that a time of personal confession may be necessary.
2. Are we looking for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives with power?
3. Our God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, will always be present for his children.
4. Since I live, you also will live, now and for all eternity.
How special is that - amazing love!

God Gives us a Future - Rev. John is preparing a series of studies on Romans 8 over the next few weeks. The first of these is available for download here.


Message from Church Council
We will continue to make our services available, over coming weeks, 9:30 on Sunday mornings. You can find them all in the same place as last week, at our page on YouTube.com.

The many teams in the church are working hard to keep in touch with all of the congregation while we are separated by the virus.
We are organising a Morning Tea after Church each Sunday, using the videoconferencing platform Zoom. We will send notices each week by mail or email to let you know how you can keep in touch.

Bryan Mullan — Secretary to Church Council


For the duration of the Coronavirus restrictions,
all of our on-site activities will be suspended.
This includes all the groups who hired our facilities, as well as church meetings.

While we are not meeting at the church, Newscope is being produced each week,
and will be emailed to members, or recent issues can be downloaded here.


Free Verandah Library
While we have cancelled our usual May Garage Sale, we are making some books and jigsaw puzzles available in our free library, on the verandah of McPhail Cottage (at the bottom of the Kentwell Avenue carpark).
Please borrow and return books or puzzles at your leisure.
We have donated some Garage Sale items to other charities where they can be used to meet an immediate need, and continue to find ways to use them to help.

Playgroups
Playgroups are suspended during the current restrictions on gatherings
