Screening: Suicide The ripple Effect – North Ryde

Suicide is a topic that is usually not talked about. The only time we tangibly talk about suicide, is when someone dies.

At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive.

The Resilience Centre is hosting a special screening of this award winning film – an amazing story of hope and healing. Please book online below.

The Edge – Crossing the cultural Divide – Sydney

Australia is a multicultural country. Our workplaces are increasingly multicultural. We rub shoulders every day with people originating from all over the world. And yet, while we live in the same city and we work side by side every day, it’s easy to feel disoriented. It’s not hard to feel so far apart.

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?

Come and hear from Stephen Lam and Deb Hannaford speak into this contemporary discussion. Please register online below.

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.

Come and explore these issues and see why the message of creation presented in the Bible is true and why the Bible’s account of our origins can be trusted. Duration: 55 minutes approximately. Admission is free.

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.

Keynote speakers include Mike Frost, Letitia Shelton, Colonel Wayne Maxwell and Sophie Renton. This conference is run by The Salvation Army, Parramatta, for all Salvationists, or those who affiliate with the Salvation Army.

It is a timely reminder to be cautious about big promises and small compromises. See online for more information, dates, times and to book. Tickets $15 – $27.

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.
