Thank you to all who came along to the prayer night on Monday night. It was amazing to see so many praying for the Lord to be at work on our frontlines. Did you miss out on the evening? The next night will be on August 26.
This Monday night, we will gather together as a church to express our dependence on God in prayer. Prayer is absolutely fundamental to who we are and what we do as a church; without prayer, we’re simply seeking to go ahead - or stray beyond - God’s own will and ways (we’ve been reminded already in our 1 Samuel series how perilous that is!). So Monday night, we will gather from 5.30-7.30PM (first to share in a meal from 5.30PM, and then to pray from 6.30PM) at St Bart’s. If you haven’t yet registered, please do so that we can ensure sufficient catering. If you are unavailable, you can download the pray booklet that will help give focus to our prayer on the night and this term.
Thank you to everyone who was able to be part of our prayer night. It was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a meal together and pray for our city, world, and church. If you weren't able to make it, you can download the prayer booklet.
On Monday night we had a wonderful time (with every generation and congregation represented) sharing dinner and praying for our church, city, and world. We gave thanks for 2018, prayed for 2019, committed our Christmas preparations to the Lord, and said sorry. If you missed it, you can download a copy of the prayer booklet and also check out some of the prayer stations on Sunday.
Thank you to everyone who was part of our prayer night on Monday. It was such a great joy to join together for a meal, pray, and worship together. If you weren't able to make it along, you can download a copy of the prayer booklet in PDF. The booklet contains a range of ideas of how to pray for the life of our church, city, nation, and world. You can also pick up printed copies at church and check out some of the prayer ideas (on cards) near the next steps wall. What a privilege and a joy it is to come before our God who can do immeasurably more than we dare dreamed or imagined for his glory and kingdom!

Today we shared some ideas for some 'next steps' in evangelism. In 2018, we would love everyone to take one step forward in sharing the Good News of Jesus. This could involve praying daily for someone to know the Gospel, attending some training, or inviting a friend. For more ideas, visit stbarts.com.au/nextsteps or check out the ‘next steps wall’ at church. If you missed out on seeing the evangelism panel of the next steps wall (you can see it next Sunday, too), some of the ideas are listed below. Of course your next steps don't need to be limited to these, but are some great ideas to get started.
I’m really excited that 2018 will be a year of ‘Next Steps’ for St Bart’s. With 2017 having been a really significant year (with the building being completed and so much more), we’re hoping and praying that we will all – as individuals and as a church – press further into our mission to make and mature disciples by seeking to take a next step in prayer, growth, evangelism, and serving. Starting TODAY, we will be highlighting a range of ways that every person can take a ‘next step’.
Today we shared some ideas for some 'next steps' in prayer. In 2018, we would love everyone to take one step forward in their prayer lives.

If you missed out on seeing the prayer panel of the next steps wall (you can see it next Sunday, too), some of the ideas are listed below. Of course your next steps don't need to be limited to these, but are some great ideas to get started.
