With great thanks to God, we welcomed Giovanna Claire Lowe into the world on Friday, August 18 at 4.31PM (3.65KG and 56CM long). 'Giovanna' means 'gift from God' and that she is!

Mission to Seafarers, Port of Brisbane 125th-Anniversary

For many years many people in our congregation and the wider community have been involved in supporting the Mission to Seafarers, by way of knitting beanies. The crews of the many ships that dock at the Port of Brisbane get to know that this is the place to come for a beanie for those cold nights on board ship in all kinds of weather at all latitudes.

Prayer on Wednesdays at 4PM

Prayer on Wednesdays at 4PM

Over the last few years, the prayer and healing service has been an important opportunity for people to be prayed for and bring real needs before God with others. As we’ve launched an evening service and had more opportunities for after- service-prayer (which has been very well used), it seems that fewer people have been coming along to the monthly 4PM service.
