Today we offer our final pre-recorded online service.
Next Sunday, February 7, we invite you to join us in the church sanctuary, at 174 Collins St, at 10.30am. We hope and anticipate that we will meet together at this time each Sunday for an ‘in-person’ experience of worship, community and teaching. We will offer live-streamed or recorded parts of the service via this website for those unable to attend.
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has joined us during this strange season of virtual church. We are grateful for the resilience of community and faith, the graciousness of you all, and the possibility of something new beginning next Sunday.
In today’s video Carolyn reflects on Psalm 30, as the ancient community brings their stories of faith and struggle right into the temple.
Thank you for your company during the past year. We look forward to seeing many of you next Sunday.
This Sunday we invite you to join us in some prayers and reflections provided in written form. We read together the story of Jesus and his family fleeing to Egypt during his youth – refugees in a violent world. What does this confronting story have to say to us today?
Our CSBC Online Service will recommence on Sunday January 24. Our in-person services at Collins St will recommence on Sunday February 7.
We pray that there has been much about this Christmas season that has brought you life and joy. We are also aware that there are, for many, a range of hidden struggles and difficulties at this time of year. We hold in prayer all those for whom this season is personally exhausting, lonely, or heavy with grief.
After many months of sharing CSBC Online services via video, we will be taking a few weeks of intentional simplicity. Each Sunday we will offer some written prayers, readings and reflections for you to engage with in your own time.
