Old Building, New Lives, Eternal Truths

In a nut shell these 6 words describe the shape of our ministry. We meet in an Old Building, we are on about growing New Life through the Eternal Truth of the Gospel. We also communicate this by saying that we are on about Growing Followers of Jesus.

Well here we are in 2016 and surrounded by an ever changing world. And things are changing. Which is fun and exciting and confusing and scary all at the same time. How do we make sense of who we are in this story and where we fit into the plot? It is well understood these days that people respond to story. You may notice that many ads on tele are now telling stories rather than giving loads of information. From God’s point of view this is not a new phenomenon. God has been telling us about who he is, who we are and how we fit in through story since the very beginning. We can read this BIG story in God’s book, the Bible. This year we are looking at “Stories Worth Telling”; these will include stories from God’s book, the Bible and stories from our own community. Why not come along and listen in, maybe even add your story to our collection. If you’d like to know more then shoot us an email or give us a call we’d love to hear from you; or drop in we are always up for a new story.

 

 

Welcome to our website.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

If you are viewing this on your phone I apologise for the current lack of pictures, I’m working on correcting that. Anyway …

We’re a growing church in the centre of Ballina working hard at growing as followers of Jesus.

We meet in an old building but we’re striving for lives that are new. So our time is based around clear, Christ centred bible teaching and a commitment to loving one another. We know that sometimes life is messy, we can cope with that. So whether you feel your life is in order or not, we’d love for you to join us on any Sunday at 9:03am (not 9:30am) or 5:30pm. We are a family of all ages and even if you don’t have any church background we’re sure that you’ll feel at home with us.

In Term 2 of 2016 we are looking at the story told in the Gospel of Mark. Why not join us and see why this is a Story Worth Telling.

Many people ask why we start our meeting time at 9:03am and not on the hour. There are a number of responses I like to give: but really it reflects our approach in doing things a little differently. It also illustrates, in a small way how we like to extend God’s grace to others. You’d be surprised how helpful those extra three minutes are on a Sunday morning.

We are in our Old Building at 9:03am every Sunday morning and 5:30pm every Sunday evening – you’re very welcome to join us.

In the meantime please wander around the rest of our website and check things out. Then maybe once you’re done with a virtual visit you’ll come and see us in person, I’m looking forward to it.

Hamish
