Over the last few weeks we have been answering the question “Who Is My Neighbour?” We have looked beyond the simplest meaning of the word neighbour to look at different generations and their cultures and how that influences the way they understand the world around them. In this message Matt Destry speaks in our 6PM service about a “sense of place” and how relational connections in a place are part of God’s bigger story for ministry to the people connected to a place.

Jody’s spoke from the book of Jeremiah. She challenged us with the question “How do you live in your city?” Do we hide and blend or establish and engage? What we need to be doing is partnering with God in His plan for our community.
Guest Speaker, Rev. Julian Dunham spoke from Matthew Chapter 9 about the calling of Matthew. From this passage we are reminded that Jesus calls unlikely people to be among outcasts and sinners to heal a broken world.
In this message in the series “Who Is My Neighbour?”, we focus on Isaiah Chapter 58. As Christians we seek God’s blessing. We learn that the blessing we seek will be found when seeking the blessing of others. We must be working for the welfare of our community.
Our culture is changing rapidly, our community values are shifting and the way that we engage with everyday life has been altered by the ‘screen-age’. We’re the most ‘connected’ we’ve ever been and yet depression is on the rise. We’re smarter, more educated and more globally aware than any generation before us and yet still
unsure of our purpose. How did we get here? How do we thrive in this environment? And most of all, how do we bring the gospel to the people of our community knowing the world is now a different place? We know we ought to love our neighbour, but exactly who is our neighbour today?
Discovery Church had Simon Warrick – CEO Empart Australia, as our Guest Speaker to conclude our series Ripe. Simon spoke on fruitfulness as Christians and on how important it was to be planted in good soil. It explained how to bear good fruit we needed to know What we are, Who we are and Where we are planted.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner!
We’d love to celebrate all things motherhood at Discovery Church this Mother’s Day at a special 10AM service. There will be no 6pm service on this day, so make sure you plan a wonderful rest of the day to spoil the women in your life who love, nurture and “mother” you.
