The Edge – Crossing the cultural Divide – Sydney

How can we adapt without losing our own story? How can we learn from each other, grow closer together and find a new richer collective identity to carry Australia into the future?

Church Event: Screening of DVD – “Who Made God?” – Bligh Park
Have you ever asked “If God created the universe then who created God?”
Many sceptics claim that invoking a supernatural act by a Creator, who is beyond our time/space universe, is unscientific and so they prefer a naturalistic view of origins. But this naturalistic view violates the known laws of science as it has to explain how nothing became everything.

Theology Event: Better Conversations with Areej Masoud – Macquarie Park
In a world of Facebook, twitter and Instagram, authentic, face-to-face conversation is in short supply. We talk in soundbites and rarely listen. Yet listening to each other is what we need to do in a polarised world.
The Tinsley Institute is launching Better Conversations because we believe in careful listening, deeper understanding, and real conversation. Students, staff, and other friends of the College are all welcome.

Theology Event: Christians and the afterlife – Newtown
Of all the issues Christians struggle with, “hell” is not high on the list. We don’t think or talk about it much. It’s not the subject of many articles, sermons or tweets.
But whether or not we are concerned about hell, Jesus certainly was. He talked about hell more than anyone else in the Bible; perhaps if he thought it was an important subject, so should we.
So what is hell? Who is going there? And what difference does this knowledge make to our Christian lives? These are the questions Moore College lecturer Paul Williamson will address.

SACRED Concert – Chatswood
SACRED is a choral orchestral concert of new musical works written by Christian composer Ken Lai, and based on the Psalms and other parts of Scripture. It will feature soloists including Broadway actress Jessica Grove, international cricketer and singer Henry Olonga, and a choral ensemble and orchestra of Sydney’s finest singers and musicians.
The music of SACRED will take you through the gamut of emotions, from the contemplative stirrings of the heart to the soaring highs of eternal glory. Throw in a few favourites from the musical “Angels”, and you have a magical experience to remember and treasure.

THOMIAN CAROL SERVICE 2018 – Parramatta
Thomian Carol Service is a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and is celebrating its tenth anniversary on the 1st of December 2018.
In 2008 a few Thomians brought to fruition a long held dream to emulate a Thomian tradition, an iconic much loved event in the life of S.Thomas’ College, in Sydney under the patronage of the S. Thomas’ College Alumni Association Sydney. The tradition has taken root beyond the Thomian fraternity, now patronised by the wider Sri Lankan community in Sydney.
To mark this occasion we are privileged, honoured and delighted to have the Archbishop of Sydney, the Most Rev. Glenn Davies. ALL are welcome!
Church Event: JESUS LOVES AUSTRALIA Gospel Rally – Olympic Park
This is the darkest time in Australian History to be a Christian and for Christianity. However all throughout history it has been in the darkest times that God has moved mightily and nations have turned back to Jesus.
We believe it is Australia’s time. God is about to move in our nation in a powerful way. To prepare for this we are hosting a Gospel rally with local Australian evangelists.
We are asking will you bring a friend who doesn’t know Jesus and/or if you are a mature Christian, would you adopt a new believer. The Gospel is only good news to those who hear it.
