St. Luke’s is on the Garage Sale Trail for 2015!

Garage Sale Trail COGG Once again, St. Luke’s will be hosting a group sale at the church as part of the 2015 Garage Sale Trail on Saturday the 24th of October. More information about that here:

The Garage Sale Trail is an initiative designed to help the community to recycle their unwanted goods by selling them to people who are keen to buy secondhand. It’s a win/win scenario!

If you have some items you’d like to sell, why not hold your own stall as part of the sale? You can register on the Garage Sale Trail website and all contact details are available there.

New small group study series: Animate!

This month St. Luke’s small groups are starting a new series of studies.

Animate: Practices is a seven-session adult introduction to the central practices of the Christian faith.

In each session, the group will watch a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group.  Topics include Prayer (Brian McLaren), Food (Sara Miles), Worship (Mike Slaughter), Sacraments (Phyllis Tickle), Money (Shane Claiborne), Service (Enuma Okoro) and Community (Doug Pagitt).

Here’s a short sample of the video from the session on “Food, eating with Jesus”.

For more information about Animate, visit the Sparkhouse website.

If you would like to join a small group for this study, contact Rev. Tony Johnson Joncevski on (03) 5244 2997 or via email.
