the Sundays after Easter....

Following the Easter season and Pentecost, our regular Sunday and weekday services continue - see the menu at the left for details of days and times. The special Lenten Prayer that was included in the Parish Press on the First Sunday of Lent remains one that you might like to use -

"... Almighty and Everlasting God, you hate nothing that you have made, and you forgive the sins of all who are penitent; create and make in us new and contrite hearts that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen"

The preacher at morning services on Sunday 8th July was Fr Barry Smith who took as his theme "Travel Light" as he considered the Gospel reading for the day - Mark 6:1-13. You can listen again to Fr Barry's address here.

On Tuesday 10th July a special Thanksgiving Service for the Christ Church Community Meals Program was held, at which the guest Preacherwas Bp Philip Huggins, the Regional Bishop of the Oodthenong Episcopate. The service was also attended by Fr Nigel Pope, the newly appointed Vicar of St Paul's Geelong, and by representatives of the many organizations and groups that support the Meals Program, and by many other individuals who are involved in so many ways in the Program. Bp Huggins spoke on the theme of "Do the Good You Can" and you can re-hear his address and listen to the congregational and choir singing and music by going to "Recent Celebrations" in the menu to the left, and following the links. It was a great celebration for all who were able to attend!
