St Bart's Kids Video from Carols

St Bart's Kids Video from Carols

Special thanks to the St Bart’s Kids team for putting together a special video for use at our Carols on the ‘Best Gift Ever’. A great and timely reminder of just how amazing the gift of Jesus truly is unto us.

Only TWO Sleeps until CAROLS!

With only two sleeps until our first night of carols, time is running out to invite a friend. Christmas is all about Good News of Great JOY and it's fast approaching! There’s no better way to get ready than some time of fun, laughing, carols, dressing up (children are welcome to dress up as angels/shepherds) waving glow sticks, and sharing in some delicious refreshments. So please be praying, and come along on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (7-8PM).

Congratulation to Zoë on her Ordination

Please give great thanks to God and pray for her as she starts a new chapter of ministry (continuing at TACAPS as chaplain and at St Bart’s as Honorary Assistant Minister).

Getting Involved with Carols by Glowstick

Getting Involved with Carols by Glowstick

It’s hard to believe, but our two nights of Carols (Tuesday December 11 and Wednesday December 12) are only a couple of weeks away! We’ve already had a tremendous response to our advertising, however now is the key time to get involved. There are three key ways to get involved.

Baptisms and Confirmations

Baptisms and Confirmations

At St Bart’s, we’re focused together in the 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. Baptism and Confirmation are important public expressions of our trust in Jesus. Whilst we can of course baptise at any time, we will be celebrating with special services on December 2, followed by an opportunity for Confirmation on December 16.
