Minister’s Message
 
 
One of the highlights of last year was the church open day. There was a bar-b-q and a coffee cart; the choir performed; there was face painting; the kids loved the giant Lego blocks and the colouring competition, while parents enjoyed a church tour. There were lots to eat, lots to do, and lots to keep people entertained! But the thing I appreciated the most about the open day was that so many of church members were there to help. Indeed, it demonstrated why Scots Kirk is such a great place to worship God. We are part of a family that works together to glorify God.
 
This year our church family has embarked upon a new and exciting time. We have started an outreach café; a music group for primary-aged children; and a new contemporary service on Saturday afternoons. Like the open day last year, it has been encouraging to see the church family supporting these new ministries. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support – it is much appreciated.
 
In our sermon series in Term 2 we are looking at the book of Acts. Here we see the disciples boldly proclaiming that Jesus is the risen and exalted Lord. As people heard this message, the church grew in numbers and spread throughout the world. But the author of Acts (i.e. Luke) is careful to remind us that the growth of the early church was not because of the skill of the disciples. Rather, the church grew because it was the will of God, it was under the lordship of Jesus, and was enabled by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is both humbling and comforting to know that the same is true for us today.
