Resources for New Series on 1 Samuel (Series Starts May 5)

Resources for New Series on 1 Samuel (Series Starts May 5)

First Samuel tells the dramatic story of Israel’s desire for an earthly king to rule over them. Despite God’s warning that such a king would fall short, God relents and King Saul rules with disastrous consequences. A faithful king is on the rise, however it’s only by coming to God in humility and obedience that their - and our - greatest hopes can be fulfilled. Series starts May 5, 2019.

Baptism Sunday (Register Interest Online)

Baptism Sunday (Register Interest Online)

At St Bart’s, our mission is to be making and maturing of disciples of Jesus for God’s glory. That means that we love to see people come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, along with continuing to mature in that relationship for their entire lives. With that in mind, we are inviting adults, who have never been baptised, to do so across our three services on April 28.

CHARGE Term 1 Wrap-Up

CHARGE Term 1 Wrap-Up

CHARGE on Friday night is finished for another term at St Bart’s! It has been a joy to welcome some new youth this year and see familiar faces back. From how did we get here?, to what has Jesus got to do with me? We have explored the big questions of life through the NUA Film Series. We also had our annual Messy Games night, Q & A night and movie night, which are always a hit. Thank you to the people of St Bart’s for your continual support of this vital ministry.

Study Guide, eBook, Family Kit, and Podcast for "Acts: Gospel to the World"

Our Study Guide has now been released, available in printed, electronic, family kit, and podcast form.

Access all of the resources.

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.
