NightChurch News 24 June

SATURDAY, 23 June, 4.30 – it is the Carrical BBQ, a boarding house in Hawthorn. If you would like to help, contact Grace Loh.

AT NIGHTCHURCH: Paul Pallot will continue the series Reason for God with the topic Does God send people to hell? Corey Leslie is organising the music team, Em Fox will lead in prayer, Andy Mitchell is the convener, Zach Moore and Phil Prior are on audio/data, and Felicia Prior is bringing Supper. Thanks everyone.

REMEMBER TO PRAY

The church is working toward appointing an Associate Pastor to work with Nick Tuohy, and the small discernment group will be meeting on Sunday. Please pray that God will lead them and the church as a whole clearly, and we will be open to his leading. The group comprises Andy Mitchell, Amy Repse, Margaret Manley and Nicholas Tuohy.

YOUNG ADULTS CAMP

The NightChurch team has begun to think about the Young Adults Camp. Do you know a property with access to a kitchen, room for people to sleep (indoors, in tents), relatively cheap, and at a suitable location? The possibilities at the moment include October/November this year, or perhaps early next year. Last year’s camp was a blessing for the 40-50 young people who attended. If you know of a suitable spot, contact Corey Leslie.

SMALL GROUPS

Lauren Morgan and Steph Ward reminded us last Sunday night that being part of a small group is really good. They have some spaces in their group, but there are also others available, and more people willing to host or lead. So, if you would like to be in a small group, contact Andy Mitchell.

 CAMPS

James and Coby Docking are the directors at the ESA camp in Anglesea from 6 July – please be in prayer for them and the team, which includes Andy Mitchell, Crispin and Jono Newmarch, Dave and Sarah Powys, Abe Gunn, Luke Sexton, Sarah Vosti, Naomi Rock and Jacquie Johnson.

FAREWELL

  • Dan Romlein, who has been at Swinburne for a semester, is off to Sydney, Cairns and back to Melbourne briefly before heading back to New York on 13 June. We are glad you have been part of NightChurch Dan, and hope you will be back in Oz soon.
  • Betsy Reedy also leaves us soon, returning to Ohio in the first week of July. Again, it has been good to have you here, and we wish you well.

A NOTE FROM RENEE BAZLEY

“I’m studying psychology in Brisbane – the course Glynn Chambers is doing, but I’m a year behind him. I actually lived with Glynn and Jaz for the first 2 months of this year and it was simply glorious. Kew has created deep friendships that will last a lifetime. It was also wonderful to be able to skype and talk of mutual Melbourne friends, and remind each other of what a special place it is for us.”

OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE
If you can provide a meal occasionally for the music teams and those leading the services, see Grace Leslie.

Laura Baker mentioned recently the need for some people to help take residents at Karana (elderly people’s home in Walpole St) from their rooms to the chapel for their service on Sunday morning at 10.30 am. If you are interested in helping, see Laura.
