A service with a difference

Over these last few weeks we’ve been in a sermon series about global mission. We’ve looked at how God calls us to go and make disciples of all nations, and to be partners in the gospel alongside those who have been sent out from among us as we look forward to the day when every nation, tribe, people and language will be gathered around the throne, worshipping Jesus the lamb.

This Sunday we conclude this mission series with a special service. We’ll be moving from a focus on ‘mission out there’ around the world to ‘mission around here’ as together we explore how we are called to be on mission to our local community and those in our immediate networks. 

It will be a church service with with a difference!

Instead of one sermon we’ll hear multiple short TED-style Bible talks. It will be interactive with time to give feedback and valuable input into emerging plans and new initiatives for 2018.  We have incredible opportunities alongside real challenges in the inner west as we seek to proclaim the grace of Jesus so we’ll also take extra time to pray as together we lift our nation, suburb and networks up to our God of mercy.  

One exciting new initiative you’ll hear more about on Sunday is ‘Summer of Fun,’ a series of focussed outreach initiatives coming up in January 2018. You can find out a bit more about this by joining the ‘CCIW Summer of Fun’ Facebook group which you can do now online here.  

May God continue to convict all of us at CCIW of the truth of the gospel of grace and its wonderful significance for all people from all nations for all of life.  

With love in Christ,
