THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: We will be hearing stories from several NightChurchers who have been involved with missions/camps over summer. Romona Boswell is organising the music team, Jane Horton will lead in prayer, Phil Prior and Lachlan Hogan are on audio/data, Marny Croot will be providing supper, and Graeme Younger is convening. Thanks everyone.
KBC WEEK OF PRAYER: Monday 2 February – Sunday 8 February. Here are your options:
- Prayer Breakfasts: Mon 2 Feb to Fri 6 Feb, 7-8am in the new Lounge (upstairs in the hall).

What we are asking is that everyone in our church commit to be present/participate in at least 1 event. This Sunday there will be sign-up sheets, but don’t wait until then, please reply ASAP. Commit ahead of time and decide now to be a part of this. So please email the office with something like this:
- Prayer Breakfast: Tue & Thurs
- 24/7 Prayer: 11-12noon Sat (you can come to more than 1 session too)

Then put it in your diary/schedule. Procrastination is not an option! We are also inviting people to lead the 1 hour sessions of the 24/7 prayer. A prayer guide and some resources will be available. If you would like to do this, then just put (Lead) after your name.
KBC LEADERSHIP SUMMIT: In continuing the work and progress made last year in cultivating greater unity, purpose and partnership across our church’s congregations and ministries, the annual Deacons/Leaders retreat is being turned into a Leadership Summit. We are calling leaders from our Ministry Team, Diaconate, Vietnamese Deacons, NightChurch Crew and Student Res Committee to come together for a day of prayer, strategic planning and fellowship. But by no means is it limited to only these people. If you have a desire to be part of this day, everyone is welcome. Details:

RES WORKING BEE: At the start of another new year for the Res, we are having a Working Bee from 8:30am-12pm on Saturday 14 February, with morning tea at 10am. This will give us the opportunity to get together before the beginning of the academic year to prepare the Student Residence for the coming year.
QUARTERLY CHURCH GATHERING: Sunday 15 February, after the 10am service in the hall. We will join together to pray, discuss and discern the leading of the Holy Spirit for our church, and share food together. Please plan to be there.
