Browns Bay dealing with the Flood.

Dear All,

We are using the Family Centre Hall for Sunday Worship. The work has started in the main church building and is now an official construction site. These are exciting times.

We are a community church comprised of people of all ages and various cultures. Our desire is to help people find and follow Jesus. This means we are discovering what it means to love God, love one another and love the community around about us.

You'll find more information about us from the links on the menu on the left.

I encourage you to join one. Speak to Dave, Val or Rob.

I am writing to you at the General Assembly of our national church this week. We started on Wednesday night and will finish at lunch time on Sunday 1 October. It’s a pretty intense time, with lots of reports to read and proposals to consider about our work as a church. And we have listened to many accounts of the mission and ministry of Presbyterian ministers, elders and local congregations from the top to the bottom of New Zealand. It’s also great to have time to catch up with friends and colleagues. What struck me on day 1 was the formal reading of the diverse role of Presbyterian pastors who have gone to be with the Lord in this past year. It’s a sombre reminder that one day my name will be read, when my life and work is over. We remembered with gratitude these men and women, their stories, and the challenges they overcame in their faith journeys. They were committed to the faithful proclamation of the gospel, and the building up of the body of Christ here and across the globe.

An encouraging bible verse for me has always been this one: “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain” (I Corinthians 15:58). This Christian walk with God (remember the famous song: “I’ll walk with God”?) has real challenges and joys. There are mountains to climb, and valleys to traverse. It will end, of course. I pray that for all of us it will end well. May we too be remembered for our faithful walk with God. (See Genesis 5:24, and Philippians 1:21).

Blessings and Peace,
