Welcome To our visitors and to all who call the Corrimal Community Church family home, whether locally or across the region/nation. Let’s celebrate God’s goodness and love together. If you are present with us, please stay for a chat and a cuppa if that’s possible for you.
2018 ‘Carols on the Lawn’ – a whole new chapter begins!
Firstly, thank you so much to the whole TEAM. We thank God for your efforts, time and commitment to making sure the event was even possible. It takes everyone to make occasions like this have the impact they have and last Sunday evening was a night to savour and remember.
The engagement with our neighbours reached a new level and conversations afterwards have opened some doors for the future. The consistent weekly connection and accessibility that we began intentionally just over 12 months ago is making a difference.
We’ll share some more detail about what’s being discussed in the New Year once we’ve consulted a little more BUT suffice it to say there is a lot of favour towards the church at present, and we can ONLY thank our Lord Jesus for that.
Our friends Amber, Dene, Meryl and Wayne from Canberra enjoyed themselves immensely as we indeed were thankful also for the offerings they brought of gifts and time.
Full wrap up and pics to come …
Our Christmas Gatherings are a Gift to You & Yours
This Christmas we are ramping up efforts to engage with MORE of our neighbourhood, so that as many as is possible for us will have the opportunity to hear and respond to the great good news of Christmas. The program is experimental – just to see what works!
The RED information postcards (art work produced by John Mac with our deepest gratitude), are available on the information desk for you to take a few and share them with family, friends and neighbours.
The following is a listing of what will be on the schedule so that you can be in prayer and offer help if and when that is useful. At the very least, please pray about who you might invite to one or more of the following and when God answers you, go ahead and let people know what’s happening and when.

Wooohooo Wednesdays – Final Week for 2018
This Wednesday the 19th December will be the FINAL ‘Coffee’s On’ and ‘Wednesday Conversation’ for the year.
We’ll do Christmas Coffee (haha) from 7am until about 9.30am for anyone who would like to drop by.
At 5.30pm we will wrap up our conversation about the True Meaning of Christmas.
Communities of HOPE Campaign Update
Karen and I acknowledge that Boxing Day (December 26th) is sometimes the family catch up day or just the kick back and recover whilst watching the MCG Cricket Test or the Yacht Race day.
We, however, are going to invite our new neighbours in Figtree to drop in sometime between 12 midday and 3pm on Boxing Day for a BBQ. It will be sort of a house warming and a ‘BE HOPE’ in the neighbourhood type of affair. We will eat, get to know each other, we might even bowl a couple of overs in the back yard or driveway (depending on pitch conditions), and come and go as we need to. No one might come or everyone, but we’ll have a go whatever the outcome.
If you don’t have other commitments and you would like to join with us on Boxing Day, please just let Karen or I know when you get a chance and we’ll work it all out in a relaxed fashion.
Some 2019 GOALS from HOPE Sunday (2nd December 2018)
(aligned to the overall mission & key strategies)
- To become a PRAYING CHURCH (not just a church that has some pray-ers) i. Establish ONE Prayer Partnership for EVERY Covenant Partner of the church ii. Establish ONE Strategic Prayer Partnership for EVERY Identified ‘Community of HOPE’ and/or Targeted Mission Sphere iii. Be known as a Church that Prays with legs under its prayers for Healing & other Kingdom of Heaven demos iv. Launch ‘The Final Harvest Foundation’ Prayer Movement, initially for Scripture/Chaplaincy in schools v. Appoint a Strategic Prayer Co-ordinator to support & resource
There are TWO other areas of the mission
- To Become a ‘Missionary’ Discipling & Equipping Church and
- To Become a ‘Community Serving & Caring’ Church
We’ll publish the 2019 Goals for these areas of the mission Next Time
