The Big Promise

Last week was a special week at TAC. It was so encouraging to commission Rachael Stabback and Leesa Vesey as they join us as MTS apprentices.

Launch 2018

Summer has provided many with a great opportunity to take a break, and enjoy the world that God has created. Rest is a good thing – it helps us long toward a new and perfect world of eternal rest.

Wisdom in 2018

Welcome to church today. Perhaps, like me, you are wondering where the summer has gone. Yes, I appreciate that it is still technically summer. What I mean is that the routine of the year is about to kick in (for those who are not already back at work) – and it is easy not to be ready. It is easy to be distracted. It is easy to be reactive, rather than proactive.

What is the church?

It’s easy to think of ‘church’ as the bricks-and-mortar building we meet in – and to be fair this is a church, but if we think this is all church is, we’re missing out.

Where can wisdom be found?

None of us wants to make foolish choices. But how do we make wise choices in such a complicated, connected culture? As Job 28 asks, ‘Where can wisdom be found?’

New Year's Resolutions

Lose weight. Exercise more. Learn a new skill. Be more patient. As a new year rolls around, many of us will be thinking through resolutions for the year ahead. What’s your resolution?

What Child Is This

For thousands of years, God had been working. And he promised to work again, but this time in a way that would exceed everything that he had done before.

Waiting for Christmas

It is interesting to reflect on what Australian’s like to do in the lead up to Christmas. Did you know that a staggering 9 out of 10 Australians like to see nativity scenes, and baby Jesus’ displayed in public places at Christmas time?

Advent

Today is the first Sunday of Advent!

The season of Advent has been celebrated for nearly 2,000 years, and yet it has fallen out of favour in the modern world and in our churches.

Passing the Baton

This Thursday evening will be a very special time at TAC, for we will be having an MTS Supporters Night for Rachael Stabback and Leesa Vesey. 

I am so delighted that they have both agreed to join us as apprentices in 2018.

Reflecting on the Yes Vote

With 4 in 10 Australians voting no in the recent same sex marriage plebiscite, no doubt many will be disappointed with the result. I am certainly one of those people. I grieve for the trajectory of our society, the implications for future generations and, most importantly, the impact on freedoms that will no doubt have an impact on our ability to share the life saving message of Jesus.

Vision Sunday 2017

Welcome to church today, the day we have called Vision Sunday. For the last month, we have taken time to celebrate the unity that we have in Jesus, and the diversity that he has blessed us with. We have had so much to give thanks for – with diverse people with diverse ministries and gifts serving one another because of our unity in Jesus.

Why Celebrate the Reformation?

You may have heard that we’ve just past the day of the 500th year of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. I imagine many of you acknowledge that something significant happened but don’t really know more than that.

Ordinary People coming to know the Extraordinary God

Today is a very special day for so many reasons. Last night was an amazing night to see the diverse ways that God is working among us. I was delighted to hear one of our youth saying that they didn’t want to miss the Boomers act! Today is also the middle of Vision Month – a time we have set aside for our church to refocus on what God has and is doing through our unity and diversity. However, today is also a special day for another reason.

Diversity and Unity

Today is the day that we encourage all across our church to join us in going for a “prayer walk.” Some have turned this into a prayer drive, which is totally fine (provided you don’t close your eyes and drive at the same time).

Welcome to Vision Month 2017

I’ve been looking forward to today for a long time.
At Toongabbie Anglican we want to maximise the impact of our church for Jesus, making the most of the time and resources God has entrusted to us. We are passionate about seeing thousands of people in our area encounter the hope, community and purpose that only comes from a true encounter with the extraordinary God.
