Sermons and Reflections

Acts 3:12-19 1 John 3:1-10 Luke 24:36b-48

Dear friends, now we are children of God, but it is not yet clear what we shall become.
But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Christ keeps himself pure, just as Christ is pure. 1 John 3:2,3.

A few months ago, one of the Newcastle clubs advertised that a medium was booked as a star attraction, and it was expected to be a sell-out. Later on, another notice appeared to say that the visit was cancelled “due to unforeseen circumstances.” Rather ironic, isn’t it?

Seeing is Believing

Written by

Acts 4: 32-35 John 20:19-31
In this post-resurrection scene from the Gospel of John, we find the confused and frightened disciples huddled in a room waiting for... something. As we dig into this scene and the interactions of the disciples, we discover different layers of meaning for different communities: 
there is the message to the disciples; there is the message to the early church; and there is the message to us.

It is Sunday – the stone has been rolled away, the tomb is empty, and the Christ is risen.  But the joy of the resurrection is not possible without the violence and death of the crucifixion.  To reach today, we must travel through Friday. We need to see the resurrection through the lens of the crucifixion.

As Christians, we have been taught to see the crucifixion as a unique event, but tragically, it was not. The Roman Empire used crucifixion as a political weapon, to send a message to those still living: do not resist, or this will be the result. The crosses at Calvary loomed over the landscape as symbols of torture, of power, of fear.

About Our Church

Our faith community began in 1975 as a small ecumenical gathering of people who settled in the new Canberra township of Tuggeranong. We have grown with the Tuggeranong Community, and our parish centre is the hub for our work, as a place of worship, of gathering, fellowship and ministry.

We come together for authentic and Christ-centred worship. While we worship in a variety of styles, we share a common focus on faithfully listening for God’s Word and sharing His kindness and compassion with others. We express our love for God and others through a range of ministries, and connections with our community.
