With the return of all our church services this Sunday, in this clip the staff explain the services on offer, procedures for returning to church and the importance of God’s people gathering to worship Him – presented professionally and with humour! ENJOY.


CHRISTIAN CARE: July 15
Welcome to our second last Care Clip for this season in our church life. Join with me on a trip down memory lane as we view snippets from each Care Clip that has been filmed over the past 4 months and keep an eye out for our last Care Clip next week that features all the staff conveying important information in a light-hearted fashion!

Thanks to all who have contributed their time, experience and expertise to the Care Clips – it has been a true blessing and joy to myself and the members of St Jude’s.

 

CHRISTIAN CARE: July 8
The church office is a busy place where a wide variety of activities happen. Felicity Ray, our office manager, chats with us about her role there, what she has learned about God in the past 4 months and the procedures we have put in place in preparation for church services resuming.

How have young families from our church coped with Covid-19? In this week’s Care Clip I chat with some of the Mum’s from our Monday morning Connect Group to see how they have managed the past few months, what they missed when not meeting together and what God has been teaching them – all from the backdrop of Bradman Oval’s play equipment!

Social restrictions are lifting and life is resembling some form of normality. However, some of us may still be experiencing consequences from Covid-19. Anglicare have developed some helpful short videos to assist us in dealing with these situations.

In this week’s Care Clip we meet Chelsie Metcalf, a young woman from our 5:30 service. We discuss with her the effect Covid-19 had on her home life, study, and evangelistic opportunities. She is a lovely, godly young lady and a real encouragement to us all.

 

CHRISTIAN CARE: June 3
Hospital visiting is a vital ministry as we reach out to members from our church and the wider community. This week in our Care Clip, Dr David Browning shares his insights into this form of pastoral care, gleaning from his 12 years experience in hospital visitation.

 

CHRISTIAN CARE: May 27
As social restrictions start to lift, we are exploring what our “new normal” may look like. There will be some aspects of our lives that will return to normality and other aspects that we are pleased have changed. However, other situations and settings will be different and we will grieve for what we once had. This type of grief is explored in an interview with Sarah Condie (from Anglican Deaconess Ministries) and Jill McGilvray (author, grief expert and lecturer) and is excellent viewing for all as they normalise what we may be feeling and give tips as to how to best deal with this type of grief. Please click on the link below to view the interview.
