Last Opportunity to Order: 2019 Lenten Study Guide

In 2019, we will be looking at Acts 1-9 to help us prepare to celebrate Easter. Acts records the incredible way in which the first followers of Jesus were so compelled by Jesus’ death and resurrection, that they were convicted to take the Gospel to the World. Through the lens of Acts, we’ll be prepared to celebrate the same Good News and how it compels us to follow Jesus as well. To help us with that, we’re preparing a 13-Week Study Guide that begins on January 14, 2019. Each Day (Monday-Saturday) includes a Bible reading from Acts, a short reflection, some questions, and a prayer. Each week also includes instructions for a family activity.

What's Coming Up @ St Bart's in 2019?

What's Coming Up @ St Bart's in 2019?

In addition to our theme of Disciple Makers this year (you can read all about it here) and our 2019 calendar, we’ve got some exciting things in store in 2019.

2019: A Year of Disciple Makers

2019: A Year of Disciple Makers

In 2018, our theme focused on everyone taking next steps to grow in maturity as disciples. In 2019, we’re shifting the focus to disciple making! To help us with that, we’ve created a discipleship pathway (Enquiring, Beginning, Growing) that has a step for anyone, be they a sceptic or a long-term follower of Jesus. Part of our hope and plans is to equip every person in our church in the activity of one-one-one discipleship. It’s all part of our mission to make and mature disciples of Jesus for God’s glory.

Opportunity to Serve: Library and Bookstall

Our library has been an expanding resource as we seek to make and mature disciples of Jesus. Over the coming months, we’re looking to grow the team so that people can access books to borrow and purchase every Sunday. John and Elizabeth have been doing a great job and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more to help in this way. If you’re interesting in being part of this team, please let Adam know (adam@stbarts.com.au).
