Thought of the Week:

‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.’ Psalm 32:8 (NIV)
What a wonderful God promise! But what is it all about? Does it embrace our everyday life - our business life, our social life, our family life, our recreational life? In Jesus’ earthly ministry, he looked at the whole person often asking leading questions such as, “Do you really want to be healed?”, before giving the command to heal.
One of our most loved hymns finishes with the words, ‘demands my soul, my life, my all.’ When we give our all for Jesus he will instruct us, teach us, and counsel us for the whole of life. It is so sad to see people compartmentalising their lives, and separating their church or spiritual life from everyday life. Let’s pause a moment and ask ourselves, “Am I guilty of doing that?”


Current News

March Rosters are now on the Roster page.
As the roster has just been circulated, there may be some changes in coming days.


Thanks from Parramatta Mission
In December last year Parramatta Mission hosted an event called the Festival of Christmas, to which Wesley contributed support. It was very successful and the feedback we received from the community was overwhelmingly positive. Here is their message of thanks —

Please see below the highlight video of our Festival of Christmas event that we have put together for you. This event had a significant impact on the community of Parramatta and brought about much hope in what was one of the most challenging Christmas periods we have experienced to date.
The Festival of Christmas

On behalf of the mission and the people in the community we support, I would like to convey our sincerest appreciation and gratitude for your generous support. The work we do would not be possible without it.

World Day of Prayer (praying for Vanuatu this year)

Joint Nominating Committee
With the departure of Rev. John Barr, there is an increased desire to know what progress is being made by the Joint Nominating Committee. The committee continues to meet regularly and considers all options available for a full time Minister of the Word for Wesley.
Confidentiality is critical to the work of the JNC and they are unable to discuss the processes that they undertake or the candidates put forward and considered. All members of the JNC are grateful for your continuing prayers supporting their work.


Thank you
We all know that 2020 was a difficult year. Thanks to the generosity of our members who have maintained and even increased their giving, we have been able to keep our heads above water. Thank you for your commitment to the ongoing work of Wesley Castle Hill as we serve God an our community.


Future of Garage Sales
Following the meeting on 18th February, we are waiting for news on how we will continue with our Garage Sales. More news to come.


Newscope is being produced, and are being emailed to members, or recent issues can be downloaded here.
Printed copies will also be available for those who return to church, and mailed to those who are unable to attend.


Free Verandah Library
While we have cancelled our usual May and November Garage Sales, 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.
