Our Response to Coronavirus
Guidelines to help you not to catch the virus can be viewed here.
Watch this space for further instructions (last updated 4th April).

Dear Friends,

Once again much has changed in the past week!  The 'two person rule' is in place in society but note that workplaces and auditoriums are exempt as long as the numbers are kept to a minimum and distancing rules are upheld.

In our case we are presenting our services with no more that two people live on the stage and maintaining all distancing requirements in the rest of the building.

Streaming Instructions have changed.  Please check New Streaming Instructions Click Here

Do note that Pastor Jimmy will be on Annual Leave until after Easter.

Pastor David will be taking 3 weeks Annual Leave from today, April 5th, returning to work on April 26th.

Rev Bruce Roberts will be preaching April 10, 12, 19 and 26. In addition to the Elders (Last Page), Bruce is also available for Pastoral needs while Pastor David is on leave. He can be contacted on 0449 634 583.

The Newsletter will be online by Friday evening (earlier in the Easter Week) and won't be printed until further notice. Roger Thorp is handling the Newsletter during my holidays and can be reached via email or phone.

I do pray that you are doing well, taking care of yourself, following health guidelines and not allowing yourself to be over stressed concerning the effects of the current pandemic.  Our God IS still in control and we can praise Him and trust Him no matter what!

Offerings can be still be given through direct debit.  Information is in the Newsletter.

Do continue to trust in the Lord at this time.  Use this opportunity to care for others; check on your neighbours and friends while maintaining appropriate social distance; use the church directory to call one another — show love, do random acts of kindness; be generous - don’t hoard but help one another.  Do call or email prayer points to Elaine (Details are in the Newsletter) so we can be praying for one another.

If you wish for prayer over the phone or would like a Pastoral visit, please call my mobile (click the link at the top of this column).

Yours in Christ,

David O’Brien
Senior Pastor
Church Council Chairman

Welcome to our church website.  

We are a family church in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.  We seek to help one another grow in Christ and share his love with everyone, so both local and global ministries are emphasized, with a strong teaching ministry from our Pastors and other capable members.

We are a very diverse group with many nationalities and a number of first languages, though services are in English.  Apart from our 'Anglo' Aussies, people from England, Scotland, the U.S., Korea, China, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Egypt, Malaysia and more are part of our Church family.  We love the microcosm of the 'nations' that God has brought together in this place.  So all are welcome.

As you look around and get a feel for our church, check out our Values and Beliefs.  Feel free to share any comments or questions that might be on your mind through our online guest book. If you are visiting, or live in our area, and are looking for a Church home, we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services. And of course, feel free to reach out and call one of our Pastors.

We'd also like to invite you to make an online prayer request. Your prayer request will be passed on to our Prayer Chain, and who knows what God will do.

Many blessings to you,

Senior Pastor David O'Brien
