This year our diocese shared teaching program is reflecting on the unique place for each of us in the body of Christ. We acknowledge this publicly each week when we proclaim ‘we are the body of Christ’ in our Eucharistic liturgy. By God’s grace as a minster parish, we are seeking to discover and live […]
As the Olympics are on I am struck once again with the cost of success. Incredible discipline and perseverance over time in preparation for the opportunity to be medalled noted as the greatest in their field at this point in history. Unsurprisingly St Paul used athletic metaphors several times in his writings as he considered […]
History in me Stories carry insights more readily than other forms of communication. Jesus made use of story regularly and these stories have continued to speak across cultures and time. How many people can recall the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal son, the wise home builder and so on? When people encountered Jesus there are occasions […]
SEEK, ASK, KNOCK. Last week our reading from Luke captured the heart of Alpha, a course to enable us to do just that. When Rev Jamie suggested we run the Alpha Course this year, I was curious to find out more and soon offered to help. What is Alpha? We have posted some info on […]

Come and join us for our monthly meal we have been sharing at St Nicholas. Each month after the 10am service we spend extra time with each other to chat, laugh and get to know each other better. Everyone from both services are invited. This week we have soup and bread to share.
Over the past three weeks, I have been involved in the Worship Central Courses, and have recently completed course 3. I have felt my understanding and appreciation of worship develop, and thus my relationship with God develop as well. As revealed through the course, we are created to worship. However, as we are prone to […]
Last week one of our parishioners, John Lea, was involved in a serious car accident through no fault of his own. On Route 1 coming back from Perth in the evening he encountered a car straddled across his lane. It was dark, there was no warning. The resulting damage to his vehicle is in the […]
Saturday saw some of the nourish ladies off on a road trip to Harvey. It was a time for coffee, cake, laughs and no children. We visited Stirling Cottage on the banks of the Harvey River, this building features the shingled roof, jarrah walls and hexagonal paving blocks of the original cottage built in the […]
