We’re moving but you don’t have to lift a thing

As many of you know but for those who don’t, Night Church will be moving from the time slot of 6pm to 5pm. “Arrive at 5” that is what we are saying. And the big moving day is next week. The 31st of January will be the first night we start at 5pm. This is also our Launch Sunday, so it will be a special service at all 3 services but even more so for night church with this new time.

As I think about this year, I am excited for what God will do in and through us at TGS and 5pm. I am encouraged that so many have seen this change as a positive and seen the opportunity for Kingdom ministry. I am looking forward to taking risks in ministry, stepping out in faith and proclaiming God to our beautiful community in Cairns.

We pray that the move to 5pm will bear much fruit for Jesus name’s sake. Many have mentioned their reasons for wanting it to change to 5pm. Some of these are as follow. 5pm is a less awkward time for their non-Christian friends to come. Others have said that it provides opportunity for hospitality ministry as this time allows them to more easily have people over after the service. Still others have said they can invite a non-Christian friend to church and then go out with them after for dinner, something they have missed out on in the past. Also there has been a number of families say that this is a better time for them to attend, especially with teenage children, a demographic we want to reach out to. There are even more comments but you can see that there is good reason for the move.

Please pray with me that God will use 5pm’s passion and zeal for him, to see the lost in Cairns won for Christ.
