Church has certainty being a challenge with all the COVID restrictions, but thankfully some normality has returned with over half the Church now gathering in person and the others remaining online. All our services since COVID began have been lived streamed and can be viewed on our Facebook page or Youtube channel.
Our first holiday since well before COVID was great. Shame to be on the winter side of the fishing season but we still managed to enjoy ourselves and it even snowed!!! It was also Flint’s first holiday with us.
Abby and I just spent a week in Indonesia visiting compassion projects and our sponsor children.
I was blown away by the impact of sponsoring children and by the huge investment (in time & resources) the local Churches make in running these programs. Sponsoring children through compassion really makes a difference and I encourage everyone who is able to at least sponsor one child.
Part of our trip included sight seeing with the team.
And some time in Singapore
3 kids, a camper trailer and 6,000 km’s to Uluru and back. A wonderful time of bonding, experience, fun, campfires, cold nights and lots of family love.
Breezekidz (summer club), Breezekidz (primary), Walk-n-talk, Alpha, mainly music, Breezekidz (creche), 10AM Band and several home groups are just some of the ministries that have been established so far this year at St Paul’s. I am so thankful to so many people for investing their time, skills and money on ministry here. There is much to do and much to plan with an evening Carrolls service, Gingerbread house making and the 2019 Summer Club events fast approaching.
As always, blog updates will be slow to our personal page with most attention going to the Church website www.stocktonanglican.org.au and our facebook page. Please keep an eye on those for changes and developments as we continue to invest in the Body of Christ. What a blessing it is!
