Thanks for helping us celebrate!

A big thank you to all the people who came along and made our Centenary a great day and/or wished us well. We had a great roll out. The moderator of the Presbyterian Church of NSW Kevin Murray came and spoke and encouraged us. We even had the newly elected Mayor of Ryde drop in!

Parent Friendly Cafe

Next week we will be running our trial Parent Friendly Cafe.

We are running the cafe as a means to build community in and around our church, and to also provide a means of serving our local community. We hope that if it runs well and does help fill a need that it might be a regular occurrence.

So, feel free to drop around and say g’day!

What is coming up at RPC…

Next Wednesday we have our next Journey of Faith. At the last Journey of Faith we considered how we might change the world, and thought about the impact Jesus has had. We will now have a look at Humility and how it can impact others.

After our 2020vision launch we decided it would be a good idea to have a lunch each month where we are able to catch up with what is going on in realising our five year plan. Details of the first lunch are below…

Mission
RPC exists to help all people draw closer to Jesus.

Vision
1 – We want to be an Acts 2:43-47 type of church.
2 – We need to develop leadership and leadership training to become an Acts 2 church.
3 – We need to grow deeply – not simply working on what we do – but rather who we are.
We want to focus on youth through Friday Night Teens and Sunday Evening Church.
We want to focus on small groups.
4 – We want to grow out – reaching to community in Ryde and beyond.
We want to develop a social/community hub through a parent friendly café.
We want to develop a Rydalmere Church plant.
5 – We want to work together to create sustainable ministries that will be able to impact our church and the community for the benefit of the Kingdom into the future.
