THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: Paul Pallot will kick off our new sermon series, preaching on the prophet Micah. Ben Ramsay is leading the service, Lauren Morgan is organising the music team, Tim Mitchell and James Crawford are on audio/data, Jane Horton will lead in prayer, Grace Walton and Jadon Dutra will be available for prayer after the service, Crispin Newmarch will be providing supper, and Sam Taylor is convening. Thanks everyone.
Dinner after church this week will be happening at ROX Café (246 High St, Kew) – 5min walk from church. What a great chance to continue conversations and fellowship with others from church over a delicious meal together! We’ll aim to get there about 7:30pm, so after the service, grab a friend (old or new) and brave the short walk for tasty rewards.

PRAYER BREAKFASTS: We run a weekly Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday mornings, 7-8am in The Lounge (upstairs in the hall). With winter here, we are serving porridge (delicious!) as part of breakfast – something to warm you up before you face the rest of the day. Don’t miss out! Remember you can also join our 5pm prayer gathering on Sundays before the service in the church building.
TITHING: A reminder that you can give your weekly offering via direct debit to the church account.
