Welcome to our Website

As our state continues in its first lengthy lockdown for some time I note that there needs to be a special response from us in the church. Our society is not living life, it is in survival mode. While our politicians, doctors and emergency services are doing their best, I think we are all being found wanting. The good news about Jesus, often called the Gospel in the church, reminds us that Jesus came to give us life and give it to the fullest. He noted that perfect love, that is Jesus, casts out fear. While it is important to obey the directions of the authorities it is also important not to have these restrictions define our lives. We need to get vaccinated, use the QR codes for contact tracing, wear our masks, etc. However, we also need to live and we need to do that in hope. I believe that the only way we can do that effectively and authentically is to live lives that are given over to God in His Son Jesus in the Power of the Holy Spirit. If we choose not to do that, then the only alternative is what we are experiencing in our world today, fear and survival.

This web site is updated reguarly, and so I hope you will take the opportunity to visit again.

As the web site continues to be updated, and I do encourage you to look around at what we have to offer. I encourage you to especially look at the various resources such as my sermons which can be accessed here in video format from you tube. Bishop Michael's Shofar is also available and is a great resource for reflecting on God's word.

With every blessing to you all
