This Week @ NightChurch
We continue our series on ‘Love’, with Nicholas Tuohy preaching on ‘In Love’s Debt’. Ben Ramsay is leading the service, Lauren Morgan is organising the music team, Stefan van Boxtel and Mel Morris are on audio/data, Amy Hunter will lead in prayer, Justin Thompson and Crispin Newmarch will be providing supper, and Sam Taylor is convening. Thanks everyone.
This Sunday night after NightChurch, ROX Café is again opening its doors for us to go and enjoy some dinner. Resist the reflex to drive home after church and brave the 5min walk down High Street for some reasonably priced delicious dinner and continued fellowship and chatting with friends old and new! As reviewers suggest, ROX “has a calm ambience for talking”. And the food? “Slightly above average for Kew”. Excellent news. (Driving down High Street to ROX café is also accepted).
Remain Festival: September 17-20, Belgrave Heights
Remain is a festival for young adults, aimed at encouraging and equipping Christians in their faith. It will be four days of teaching, worship, fun, food and community. Speakers include Guy Mason, Mark Sayers, Brenton Killeen, and Hannah Craven. Early bird tickets are available for $120 until Sunday 9 August, and then full price tickets will be available for $160. So get in quick this week and book your ticket! There will be a crew from NightChurch heading to Remain and setting up a bit of a KBC campsite there – check out www.facebook.com/events/1644364472441945 for more details. And see http://remainfestival.com.au for more information about the festival itself.
There will also be a market at Remain and they are currently looking for some great stalls to be a part of it. If you are interested in hosting a stall at the market, please contact the church office for further details.
Sunday School & Crèche
Volunteers are needed to help out with Sunday School and Crèche on Sunday mornings, during the 10am worship service. If you’re able to help out (even if just once a month!) or you’re interested in finding out more, please speak to Bree Monahan or Liz Pell.
40 Hour Famine
2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the World Vision 40 Hour Famine. Since 1988, Kew Baptist has participated in Famine for 12 years and raised over $17,000. If you would like to donate this year, please visit www.40hourfamine.com.au. Every dollar makes a difference. In Bangladesh (one of the featured countries) where 7 million children under 5 are critically undernourished, $10 can help improve the nutrition of ten children under 2 years old.
“Nourish” Women’s Retreat: October 9-11
The Camping Program is running a women’s retreat at Burnside (Anglesea) in October. Julie Rock and Caroline Rickard are speaking on the topic “If the shoe fits…”. Cost $125. More details and registration information available here: www.thecampingprogram.org.au
Tuesday Prayer Breakfast
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.
A reminder that you can give your offering via direct transfer to the church account.
