12 December 2021 is the Third Sunday of Advent.
By this point in the Season of Advent, the mood has changed.
We are preparing ourselves to be surprised again and again by God.
The main Scripture from the Bible this week is from the Old Testament: Zephaniah 3:14-20 – the final section of Zephaniah’s prophecy. It’s a text that celebrates the fact that God does, and will, take care of us.
This forms the theme of Rev. Geoff McKee’s sermon today. Below, you will find the main scripture reading, the Video of the service, and a Musical Selection chosen by our Musical Director, Kath Robertson.[Read more…]

We hope to see you there for what promises to be an uplifting evening of music and song.
It’s the Second Sunday of Advent – 05 December 2021 – and there’s irony in our headline.
The main Biblical text for today is from the Old Testament Book of Malachi. It was written at a time when, across the land, the blame for the unacceptable state of society fell on the foreigners, the migrants and on the poor and the weak.

Main Scripture for today

2 But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness, 4 and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord, as in days gone by, as in former years.[Read more…]
