Starting again in 2014 are our Women’s Breakfasts.IMG_1076

Official dates are still to be finalised, but our Women’s breakfasts are great opportunities to gather together with other women and enjoy a delicious hot or cold breakfast. Over the year we’ll have a variety of women sharing with us over breakfast about a range of different topics, but all promise to be one that you can’t miss.

We want to encourage the ladies of our church and our community, both young and the young at heart, and our breakfasts are a chance to share, laugh, enjoy and get to know new and old friends.

Stay tuned for information here at our Women’s Ministry page.

in 2013 we were privileged to host our first Marriage Course event, which saw a handful of couples meeting together over the course of a few weeks to strengthen and enrich their marriages. 2014 will see our second course going ahead, this time held earlier in the year.

More details will be posted soon here but in the meantime, if you’re interested why not send us a quick message via the email form here.

We’re really looking forward to you joining us as we together build a stronger community where good healthy marriages are important.

Important-253x162At CPC we want to reach and support all the members of the family in providing an opportunity for everyone to experience real community and real relationships, as well as a chance to enjoy getting together with others and have some fun.

With that in mind we’ve booked in the dates throughout 2014 for our men to get together. This year we’re excited to be hosting 3 men’s breakfasts, our annual Boy’s and Blokes camp again and another Blokes Event later in the year.

These dates may be tweaked slightly as the time approaches and unforeseen issues arise, but to keep connected check out our Men’s Ministry Page for all the information, dates and to rsvp.

 

Next Sunday we finally unpack the last chapter of the Apostle Peter’s first letter to the Christian Church, dispersed across the known world by God in order that the gospel be lived out, clung to and exampled for the world to see and believe in.

We close Peter’s letter with a call to ‘be who you are called to be’, with Peter urging Christians everywhere to step up in faith and to stand firm in hope, and live as God’s people in every situation. Peter takes us into the roles of both elders and young people, those that lead and those that follow, to show us that we must live out the calling we have in order that we as a community of believers, as the church, can stand firm against the tempting lure and it’s damaging consequences, of the ‘prowling lion’ that is Satan.

Join us at 8:30am or 10:00am to finish this great letter together.

ThessaloniansPromoBeginning on Sunday 25th August is our new sermon series unpacking the book of 1 Thessalonians.

Join us on Sundays to see how the Apostle Paul shows us the Shape of the Gospel through his letter of encouragement and teaching to the Christians in the city of Thessalonica.

Coming up bright and early on the morning of Saturday the 17th is our next Men’s Breakfast.

Join us for a great hot breakfast from snags to hash browns, to eggs and crispy bacon, or simple enjoy a smooth espresso coffee and a delicious bowl of cereal.

The morning will be a fantastic opportunity to chat and enjoy each others company and a chance to read the bible together and to encourage one another in faith in Jesus.

Breakfast is available from 7:30 and is a free breakfast but we welcome donations to help cover costs.

Beginning this Sunday at the same time as our regular Children’s Church, is our new creche for those kids not yet in school. With our number of kids ready for a creche steadily growing, it was decided to launch them into a group of their own.

During creche the kids will explore the Bible, learn songs and interact through craft and play, all focused to teach about the real life and hope that is only found in Jesus.

Our Creche kids will head out with their leaders at the same time as the older kids, after the Kids Talk and Song during 10am Church.

For any information about any of our Kids or Youth Ministries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We launched the Marriage Course last Wednesday night with a great night.

Four couples invested into their relationships with a romantic date night of beautiful food and conversations set within comfortable surroundings. The night was hosted by a couple from CPC and backed by the Marriage Course DVD series.

With no group work, but individual couple time to talk and discuss, this course is the ultimate opportunity to build and grow your marriage into a stronger bond.

For information on our next course, please contact us.

exodus

After a few weeks in recess, Phil Case will be taking us back into the Old Testament book of Exodus to finish his series: “Exodus, Out of Egypt”.

We were left with the Israelites standing in awe having come face to face with their God at the mountain and receiving His law. Now Phil shows us the journey from the mountain to the Promised Land and what that teaches us today.

Join us for Exodus:
14th, 21st & 28th July; 4th & 11th August.

AussieBBQ2

To kick start Night Shift for term 3, we’d like to invite you to join us for a BBQ.

Our “Welcome BBQ” is aimed at encouraging our new families at CPC to check out our youth group and also for those already coming to start back in style while also inviting their friends.

We’ll have a BBQ dinner and enjoy some awesome Night Shift games, plus we’ll take a look at the Bible and see what we’ll be discussing over the new few weeks.

For more information feel free to email Rob Davey through the Contact Us page.

Our Student Pastor Rob Davey has launched into a new Mini-Series through the book of 1 Peter, “Citizens of Hope; Living as Followers of Jesus”.

Peter is writing to exiled Christians, urging them to remain firm in their great hope in Jesus; trusting in God and living with confidence as His people, particularly through suffering. Christians are called to live out of their identity as God’s elect, chosen and united by hope regardless of the circumstance. Peter reminds us first what God has done in Jesus, than how that applies and must be demonstrated in the life of Jesus followers.

Join us for our 1 Peter mini-series|
23rd & 30th July; 13th, 20th & 27th October.

The next Marriage Course starts in July 2013 .

Revelation reduced

 
At the close of the 1st century, John writes to a group of small, weak and confused churches. Faced with persecution, tantalizing false teaching and alluring idolatry, they’re in an epic battle not to compromise.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the church in Australia is also small, weak and confused, and she shares the same battle.

In the face of overwhelming odds, John encourages them, and Christians in all times, to overcome because of the One who overcame. The battle will be long and hard, but to the one who overcomes in Jesus, the struggle will be so worth it.

Beginning Sunday 3rd of March, come along and hear God’s promise to the one who overcomes.
