HOPE QUEANBEYAN 9TH ANNIVERSARY

We at Hope Queanbeyan celebrated our 9th Anniversary on 14 October 2018. This is a very special year for it signified several milestones for us. To begin with, we are now registered as Hope Christian Church Queanbeyan, Inc. in New South Wales. Our website is up, kids church now has two classes to cater to different age groups and our life groups have started to multiply. People are getting involved in various ministries and becoming more committed in serving the Lord. We are not only growing in our relationship with God but we are also growing in numbers. Our current church venue could now hardly accommodate us, in fact we are praying and looking for a bigger place to open up for us.

Our theme for this year’s church anniversary is “Prayer: a Passion for the Presence of God”. Pastor Helen Kirby, our guest preacher from Hope Adelaide shared about praying with confidence and having the compassion to pray for others. We also had two different teaching sessions with her where she shared valuable insights on how we should be working as a team in the ministry. She shared how their church grew from 6 people, how they initially multi-tasked and their passion for serving the Lord.

We were also honoured to have a special guest Mr Alistair Coe, an Australian politician who has been a leader of the Liberal Party and Leader of the Opposition in the Australian Capital Territory since October 2016. He shared about being a Christian in the field of politics and being God’s ambassador in the workplace. He encouraged us to be a member of a church community. He reiterated the importance of belonging to a church because he believed that Sunday worship is a culmination of our daily worship to God through our respective jobs.

After the service, we honoured the people who have been regularly visiting our church. We wrapped it up with a hearty lunch prepared by church members.
