Possible resumption of live services

I am pleased to advise that as of Sunday, 13 September there had been a significant decrease in the number of cases in postcode 2154 and adjoining suburbs. At that time there was one active case in Castle Hill and two in Baulkham Hills. All other adjoining suburbs were free of active cases. There were still three active cases in the Kings Langley area.

If there is no significant increase in cases reported in our area, we should be able to resume services in the church on the first Sunday in October observing social distancing requirements. Any return will, of necessity, be entirely dependent on continuing improvement in the area that Wesley serves. Please be assured that we will continue to monitor daily to ensure that we are aware of all changes in the community.

In the event that we do resume services in the church, we will continue to broadcast prerecorded services each week until such time as we broadcast services live from the church. We will ensure that you are not left without a way to worship together with us every Sunday morning.

The area monitored extends from Kenthurst in the north to Northmead in the south and from Kings Langley/Quakers Hill in the west to Cherrybrook/West Pennant Hills in the east.

Thought of the Week:

‘“…..Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.’ Isaiah 54:10 (NIV)
Sometimes we feel distant from the Lord. It is important that we see that as it really is, our feelings. The reality is that God’s love and compassion for us is unshakeable, and God’s covenant commitment to grant us his peace remains forever. Remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ before he ascended into heaven, ‘”And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”’ Matthew 28:20 (NIV)


Current News

Study Series on Exodus
Rev. John has concluded a series of five studies on the book of Exodus.
All the studies are still available from the Sermons menu under Worship & Sermons. Look for the studies by date from 23rd August to 20th September.


Newscope is being produced each week, and are being emailed to members, or recent issues can be downloaded here.

For the duration of the Coronavirus restrictions,
please note that in-person meetings are suspended again, but when it is safe to resume, leaders of the groups will contact members as details become available.


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.


Message from Church Council
Although we have had to discontinue meetings in the church building at 9:00am, we will continue to make our recorded online services available, 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 have organised a Morning Tea after Church, using the videoconferencing platform Zoom. We will send notices about future events by mail or email to let you know how you can keep in touch.
