Theology Event: SMBC Hot Topics – Croydon

HOT TOPIC #7 – SAME-SEX MARRIAGE? MARRIAGE EQUALITY?
with Michael Stead

Many people sincerely believe that marriage is ripe for redefinition. Is this a question of rights and equality, or something else? Does God’s word speak clearly about marriage? Can it legitimately make sense of the current debate and suggest how to respond wisely? Michael is the Anglican Bishop of South Sydney, and has spoken and written thoughtfully on this contentious issue.

SMBC Hot Topics is a series of 10 public talks held on Wednesday evenings to 17 May. These talks are ideal for those who want their hearts and minds challenged.

Most of us don’t think about it very much but having a good Will is one of the best ways to make sure the people who matter to you are taken care of. And it doesn’t have to be difficult or costly.

The Salvos offer a community service in which generous local Solicitors put Wills together in exchange for a $50 contribution to our community work. It’s a great way to make sure you have a Will that reflects your wishes and help people in crisis at the same time.

Church Event: Presence Conference – Darling Harbour

Presence Conference is an experience. It’s effective ministry, leadership training and empowerment for every believer. It is about you meeting with God and God meeting with you.

If there is one thing we are longing for, it is for the power of the Holy Spirit. If there is one thing He is longing for, it is to spend time with you.

To describe Presence is easy – it’s experiencing the presence of God.
There is something about Presence that helps us know the resurrection life of Christ
and that the power of the Holy Spirit is real.

We are passionate about giving Australians the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Many Aussies are interested in spiritual things, but have little desire to visit a church. So how can they get to know Jesus?

MyFriends helps everyday Christians develop a lifestyle that creates opportunities for their friends and family to discover God’s story together.

MyFriends provides a coaching community that intentionally prays, loves, cares, and shares Jesus with their non-churched friends, family, and colleagues. We’re trusting that Australians will experience Jesus and be ready to discover God’s story together, in their own communities.

Church Event: MyFriends Training Launch (Western Sydney) – Minchinbury

We are passionate about giving Australians the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Many Aussies are interested in spiritual things, but have little desire to visit a church. So how can they get to know Jesus?

MyFriends helps everyday Christians develop a lifestyle that creates opportunities for their friends and family to discover God’s story together.

MyFriends provides a coaching community that intentionally prays, loves, cares, and shares Jesus with their non-churched friends, family, and colleagues. We’re trusting that Australians will experience Jesus and be ready to discover God’s story together, in their own communities.

This launch is for Christians leaders, and ‘everyday’ Christians.

Theology Event: SMBC 2017 Biennial Preaching Conference

Apocalypse Now – Preaching the Book of Revelation. Trumpets, scrolls, beasts and numbers – the Book of Revelation shows us a reality beyond our imagination – and sometimes it can feel like it’s beyond our preaching too!

But as God-breathed scripture, with God and his people at its heart, this book cries out to be preached with just as much passion and flair as the book itself.

If you’re a preacher, pastor, Bible study leader, or someone who loves to delve deeper into the Bible, this conference is for you! More info and rego at the website below.

Theology Event: SMBC Hot Topics – Croydon

HOT TOPIC #10 – WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT THE REFORMATION?
Stuart Coulton

The day before All Saints Day 1517, Martin Luther posted a document on a German church’s wall. That’s a long time ago: 500 years, in fact. Surely it’s time to give the Reformation a break and get on with more modern Christian concerns. How can what took place so long ago better help us understand the authority of the Bible and the centrality of grace? Stuart is Principal at SMBC.

SMBC Hot Topics is a series of 10 public talks held on Wednesday evenings to 17 May. These talks are ideal for those who want their hearts and minds challenged.

Church Event: ‘An Uncommon Good’ Conference – Ashfield

The gospel of Christ’s life, death and resurrection set us free. It frees us from God’s wrath and sin’s shame. And it frees us to live in accordance with His will. “Let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” These were Christ’s words to his followers, and they still have relevance to those who believe in him today. An Uncommon Good wants to equip Christians to act on these words.

How can we as His people have a positive impact? How can God move us to bless those beyond the church – in our places of work and society as a whole? Among our co-workers and the neediest and marginalised of our communities?

National Day of Thanks

Here’s how you can get involved in the National Day of Thanks:

Write a thank-you note to someone who’s made a difference in your life, bake some cupcakes and hand deliver them to your local police station or fire department, or organise an event to thank those who are making a difference in your community.

“There’s something about being thankful. It’s got the oxygen of goodness about it. It crosses the barriers of age and race, gender and culture… Thankfulness takes a refreshing eye off the self and commends the other… Thankfulness is something we show… to our God.” Colin Buchanan – National Day of Thanks Ambassador
