Participate

I hope you enjoy reading some of the wonderful stories from our churches that will begin to drop over the coming days and weeks. We are using a new format to communicate how we are participating in God's mission. I am looking forward to receiving more stories from our churches to share across our movement, along with stories from our ministry partners Life Care, GMP and CareWorks.

In addition to sharing some good news from our churches we were keen to tie the look of the Newsletter in with the theme of this year’s convention; Participate: in life: in Christ”.

Participating in the life of Christ through union with Christ (Christ in me, I in Christ) is a New Testament theme that emerges throughout the apostle Paul’s writings, John’s writings and the New Testament more broadly. (Col. 1:27) We are invited in these New Testament writings to align ourselves with Jesus. We are to follow the lead of Jesus as we live out our lives and to seek to be in relationship with Jesus as our primary response to the call of the Gospel.

Our lives are full of participation; in our families, our workplaces, friendship groups and in society as a whole. We are also called to participate in the movement of the Churches of Christ and for these many reasons we see this theme as relevant for us at this time. Our hope is that our reflections at Convention will help us to think about how we participate in the Churches of Christ movement. We also hope it will help us to participate in life as a response to our participation in Christ.

Point Sturt Celebrates 160 years on August 22nd

The first meeting at Point Sturt was in the tent home of William Crawford in 1855. A Church was then built, opening in 1861, free of debt.  David Mann supervised the construction of the building and also built the cedar seats. The slate roof which still remains was the work of James Crabb Verco.  An organ was purchased in 1925.

Baptisms were performed in the lake.  In 1868 there were 53 scholars in the Sunday School.

In 1900 it was considered acceptable for a wage of 104 pounds per year for a married man and 80 pounds per year for a single man.

There will be a service at this well maintained building on August 22nd at 2.00pm.  Grant Simpson will be the speaker and Daryll Telfer is leading the service.  Although not in regular use for many years, we are still celebrating 160 years of the faithful witness of this Church.

Enquiries and registrations for attendance can be made to Carolyn Yelland 0412 499 302.
