Welcome message from our Minister

Welcome to our website.

Knowing Jesus Christ is the most wonderful thing anyone can do.

I trust Jesus Christ because I’m convinced –

  • The Bible’s message about him is true.
  • The Bible’s message is wonderful news for everyone – including you!

Here are two talks which you might find helpful in thinking about these matters. Coincidentally, they both draw comparisons with space exploration. 🙂

How can you know the Bible’s message about Jesus is true? Not a Fairy Story. (Christmas 2015.)

 

How is it Good News of great joy for all the people? On the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8. (Christmas 2018.)

 

and you can also read some notes I put together for our ‘Moon Landing Lunch’ in 2018. (How can you know the Moon Landing actually took place? How can you know anything important in history happened?)

If you might be interested in coming along to similar events, please contact me, and do feel invited to visit us any Sunday at 9:30am. (I promise you won’t be subjected to too much talk about space exploration – but I do hope we can be a help in thinking about the most important and wonderful things of all.)

– Colin Mackellar.

Remembrance Day Service – Sunday 11th November

Join us at 9:30am on Sunday 11th November 2018 for our special observance of the Centenary of the end of the Great War 1914 – 1918.

We’ll be honouring some of the local residents who left these shores – including those who did not return. We’ll also be praying for genuine peace for our world. And we’ll hear words of hope and comfort from the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus.

And there will be a special morning tea after the service. (Church will finish by 10:30am and, for all who stay for morning tea, we will pause at 11:00am to remember the time the Armistice was signed.)

You are most welcome to join us – at St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, 11 Ridge Street, Merrylands West.
