Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:5-7)
We are delighted that 30 Lenten Family Kits went out last week, equipping families with resources to support them as they sit down together to read, discuss, and pray about God’s Word. This week families will be focusing on Jesus’ words in John 14:6 “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” If you haven’t yet booked in a time with your family to go through the study and complete the activity, please do so! We’d love to see your family in action – please post your photo and tag it with #stbarts

Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.” Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times! (John 13:36-38)
On Sunday February 11 we launched our Small Groups at St Bart's for 2018.Small Groups form an important part in our mission to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for God's glory. Each week right across our city, 17 St Bart's Small Groups meet to study the Bible, pray and grow in relationships with God, and with each other. There are small groups for men/women only and there are mixed groups, there are groups that meet each day of the working week, there are groups that focus on one age group or all age groups, and there are groups that meet during the day or at night. With so many different groups there is bound to be a group for you.
Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him. (John 12:14-16)
Join us on Tuesday February 13 for a casual pancake party from 7-8PM at church. Everyone is welcome - pancakes supplied - just BYO favourite topping to share. If you're already at church that night, come early and join in on the fun!
This Wednesday at 5.30PM will be our Ash Wednesday Service. This service marks the beginning of Lent - an important opportunity to reflect upon our mortality, brokenness, and sinfulness as we prepare to celebrate the glory of Jesus' death and resurrection at Easter.
This year for Lent we will be taking a closer look at the final stories of Jesus in John's Gospel. Our series (and study guide) is called: "Truth & Glory". This is an opportunity to look closely at the truth of who Jesus is, the purpose of our lives, and the glory of Christ's death and resurrection. Download it for free.
With great thanks to God it was wonderful to commission the children, youth, and families teams. This team includes a total of 100 people serving across St Bart’s Kids on a Sunday morning (Parent’s Room, Crèche, Kids’ Talk, and Sunday School), the CHARGE High School Discussion Group on Sundays, mainly music, Kids Club, the CHARGE Bible Study (on Tuesdays), and the CHARGE Youth Group (Fridays)! It also includes the baptism, RI, and the ‘expecting families’ ministries. This is a phenomenal team who serve God so generously in order to help young people come to know and grow in their knowledge of Jesus. Please continue to uphold them in prayer and encourage them as they seek to serve.
