Welcome



GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

Welcome to Church on the hill!

It’s an exciting season we’re in right now with a growing church congregation, increasing home group numbers and a vibrant youth and children program.

If you’ve visited before but been away for a while, you’ll notice some upgrades to the chapel and building outback area to help our ministries function more comfortably, but more encouraging is the growth in our people. Check out the different home groups for your connection with others and personal discipleship  If you have kids, bring them along every second Friday night (and Wednesday for bible study). They’ll love to connect with the other youth.

Sunday services include a different band/ worship leader each week, with a kids church program during the sermon. You’ll notice the sermon usually includes at least 10 verses of Scripture as we believe in preaching the word of God verse by verse so God can speak to you personally.

Thanks for being with us and enjoy your week.

Brendan


From the Pastor...



This Week’s Message

2024-06-16 – Acts 10 19-35  –  Rev Brendan Edwards

Acts 10:19-35 (NIV)

19 While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Simon, three[a] men are looking for you. 20 So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them.”

21 Peter went down and said to the men, “I’m the one you’re looking for. Why have you come?”

22 The men replied, “We have come from Cornelius the centurion. He is a righteous and God-fearing man, who is respected by all the Jewish people. A holy angel told him to ask you to come to his house so that he could hear what you have to say.” 23 Then Peter invited the men into the house to be his guests.

Peter at Cornelius’s House

The next day Peter started out with them, and some of the believers from Joppa went along. 24 The following day he arrived in Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. 25 As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. 26 But Peter made him get up. “Stand up,” he said, “I am only a man myself.”

27 While talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. 28 He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean. 29 So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?”

30 Cornelius answered: “Three days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me 31 and said, ‘Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. 32 Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea.’ 33 So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us.”

34 Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.
