The Better Together Series
Throughout February our Newy am, Newy pm and LakeMac congregations have been looking at what the bible says about friendship, especially friendship in Church. There's been lots of great feedback, as well as lots of great questions.
To listen to the talks, go to our SoundCloud page.
O-Week @ UoN
Last week, thousands of new students started university at Newcastle. Unichurch held a bunch of outreach events and activities during O-Week.
It was a great week where they were able to let new and current students know about Jesus and church. The Team had some awesome conversations and 50 new people came along to Unichurch for the O-Week BBQ.
Pray for Unichurch as they continue to welcome and encourage new students both at church and through evangelistic conversations.
The Life Series
It’s been a cracker start to the year with the Life Series. There has been 19 people coming along to check out Jesus!
Church is doing a stellar job of chatting to their friends about Jesus and inviting them along.
Pray that God would use his series to save many people for his glory.
NextPhase 'Living with Dementia'
On the 3rd of February, NextPhase held a seminar on ways to love and dignify people with Dementia as well as care for them as our Christian family. It reminded us that Jesus offers hope beyond Dementia.
Please be praying that people over 55 would continue to be exposed and challenged with the Gospel regardless of their illness. And, that in spite of people’s debilitating illness, we are able to show them hope through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
LakeMac Men & Meat
The guys at our LakeMac congregation got to invite their mates along to a great night hearing from Liam Doyle, a butcher turned pastor.
These have been really well attended and the prayer is that it will lead to guys coming along to Life or Christianity Explored to keep checking out Jesus.
Cupacke Decorating Afternoon
Alongside the Men & Meat event, the LakeMac congregation held a cupcake decorating afternoon. A bunch of people's friends came along and met one another while having fun with icing and treats.
Again, please pray that these events would lead to more conversations and invitation to come and check out Jesus.
Mag team gathering
Magnification Team Gathering was an evening where members of the Mag Team cam together for a night of fellowship, praise and learning new skills.
This was an opportunity for the Mag Team to spend some time improving their communication and skill base. Pete Munday gave a compelling talk on prayer where the Team was challenged to change their attitude towards prayer and its place in our life.
Please pray that the Mag Team can continue to work together at growing in their love of talking to God, and sharing this with our church.
MaTURITY Team Training
The Unichurch Maturity Team met for training, planning and team building on Saturday, Feb 17.
This team of 50 or so guys and girls will be leading groups for the hopefully 300 people at Unichurch this year.
Pray for lots of sign ups and healthy and growing groups.
