Welcome to our church today

It’s great to share with you at church today. Please make yourself known to our staff if you are visiting.

Our Diocesan booklet about Marriage

Dr Michael Stead, Bishop of South Sydney, writes … “Your parish should be receiving its copies of the booklet “What Has God Joined Together? Please distribute these booklets at an appropriate time. In conjunction with the distribution of this booklet, a website with the booklet’s content and other additional resources has gone live … http://sydneyanglicans.net/marriage.  In addition to the full text of the booklet, the website also contains translations in simplified and traditional Chinese.   It also contains an essay entitled “Does God approve of same-sex sexual activity?” Best wishes  Michael

I commend this booklet to you.  It isn’t designed to give away to our friends outside the church.  Its designed for those of us who are followers of Jesus, who believe the Bible is God’s word, and who are seeking to maintain the value & model of marriage taught in the Bible.  It’s designed to equip us to speak helpfully, lovingly and clearly to our families, workplaces, sporting clubs, media and community on this issue.  Graham
