NIGHTCHURCH SUMMIT: Here is a collation of discussion notes from our recent NightChurch Summit. Please take some time to read carefully through the document.
THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: Paul Pallot will be preaching on the theme of Prayer. Bree Monahan is leading the service, Lauren Morgan is organising the music team, Zach Moore and James Crawford are on audio/data, Caz James will lead in prayer, Sarah Powys will be providing supper, and Sam Taylor is convening.
ROX CAFÉ: Straight after NightChurch, you are invited to head down the street to ROX café (245 High Street, Kew) for dinner!
For those of you unfamiliar with the phenomenon that is ROX, this “modern Kew café with the darker, more relaxed feel of Fitzroy” (“The Oracle”, Urban Spoon) opens its doors for dinner just for us, one Sunday night per month, so that we can continue to enjoy time together after church and not go hungry. This month, head chef Louie is preparing burgers and parmas, all at low prices to suit even a student budget. It’s only a 5 minute walk from church, so put it in the diary, and come and enjoy a nice relaxed dinner together. In the words of “Teresa Ryan”, Urban Spoon – the food is “absolutely delicious and well-priced for the quality.” High praise indeed.
KEW STUDENT RESIDENCE – OPENING SOON! The Kew Student Residence is a 50 bed hostel out the back of Kew Baptist Church, which provides year-long accommodation for tertiary students from out of Melbourne, and it will be opening again soon! On Sunday 22 February, the new students will arrive, along with a number of returning students from 2014.
On 22 Feb, you are all welcome to join a BBQ lunch in the hall at 12:15pm, followed by a special service held in the church at 1:15pm. If you’re keen to meet the new students, welcome back last year’s returning students, or just learn more about the ministry of the Residence, please come along. NightChurch will still be running at the normal time (5:30pm) as well on Sunday 22 Feb.
PRAYER BREAKFASTS: A reminder that we are running a weekly Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday mornings, 7-8am in The Lounge (upstairs in the hall). Put it in your schedule and start the day with worship, prayer, food and friends at KBC.
TITHING: A reminder that you can give your weekly offering via direct debit to the church account.
That’s all for this edition of NightChurch News – Steve Pattison.
