11th JANUARY 2020

Hi there Real Life family!

I hope that you have known God's peace and presence through our three-day lockdown in the Greater Brisbane area. It was certainly a disruptive experience for many! However, it may have been a welcome slow-down time for many too. I, for one, don't envy our Government Officials who have to make significant decisions - weighing up the many needs - in order to keep our communities in Queensland safe. Let's continue to pray for them as we continue into 2021.

It is great news that we received today from the Premier today that the lockdown will conclude at 6pm tonight (Monday 11 January)! Let us not take for granted the freedoms we have! However, until 1am on Friday 22 January we have some adjusted restrictions to follow. Your can read a summary of those restrictions here.

With the reduced numbers per available space indoors and the requirement to wear a mask for worship services, we have resolved to offer a live-streamed online only worship service this weekend (17 January).

While we love being together in person, we want to keep our community safe and provide an opportunity to worship our King! The best way to do that this weekend will be online. You can connect with the online service at 9:30am and at 4:30pm on Sunday. The link for the online service is below.
I hope you were encouraged by the start to Summer Sermon Series called
"New Beginnings".

We look forward to continuing the series this weekend as we seek to learn lessons from God's work in the lives of some heroes in the Bible who experienced a new beginning. This is a great opportunity to invite a friend to join you online for the service. I am sure that like me you know some people who are spiritually hungry for a clean slate, a fresh start, a Phoenix moment...
The NextGen Leaders Ministry Training Day will go ahead in-person 
on Saturday 16 January

Throughout the Scriptures God instructs us to disciple the next generations.

We have been called to connect - engage – and equip children, youth and young adults as they are drawn into a life transforming relationship with Jesus.

For all those serving in a NextGen ministry area in 2021, come prepared to hear from God,
skill up and prepare yourself as we step into all God has for
the NextGen ministries in 2021.

The NEXTGEN21 ministry training day will run from 9:30am – 4:30pm
(please be checked in ready to commence at 9:30am).

All meals will be provided at no cost (please e-mail Clare any dietary requirements)

I am looking forward to restrictions returning to a more relaxed level in the weeks ahead. The experience of the last week and the lockdown are sobering reminders that we are still in the midst of a global pandemic that is deeply impacting nations across the world. Let us continue to pray for communities everywhere and the churches within them that they might know healing, protection and peace. It is also a reminder of how blessed we are to live in Australia in such a time as this. We are blessed to be a blessing, so let's count our blessings and give thanks to God for them

Have a great week!
