Sunday School and Bible Studies kick off for 2017
School’s back, Australia day’s over and so things are kicking off again for 2017. On Sunday (January 29) our Sunday morning children’s teaching program will start. This term the children will be learning from John’s gospel. Sunday School starts part way through the service—so our church family spends time hearing from God’s word and praying together first, before the children head down to the hall for their own teaching. Bible studies are also restarting after what feels like a very long summer break. Read more

Christmas 2016
At Christmas there’s lots to celebrate: family, holidays, food, summer, presents. On the first Christmas there was the greatest reason to celebrate. The birth of ‘a saviour, who is Christ the Lord.’ This new born child caused angels to sing and kings to tremble. This Christmas we invite you to join us to celebrate the saviour, Jesus. Carols: December 9, 6:30pm Christmas Morning: December 25, 8:30am 11 Crown Road, Gympie Read more

Great Expectations
Waiting for the birth of a child is a time full emotions—joy, worry, hope, concern. It’s a time of great expectation for what the future may hold. In the weeks leading into Christmas 2016, join us at Gympie Presbyterian as we wait in wonder for the birth of the one whose birth was announced by angels “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.

Trash ‘n’ Treasure - Update
A big thanks to everyone who supported our Trash ‘n’ Treasure sale on June 11. We had a great day, cooking up sausages and selling loads of ‘stuff’—collectables, bric-a-brac, clothing, plants, relishes…even a piano! The total amount raised during the sale was around $800, and as church we ‘rounded up’ the total to $1000. So we’ve been able to donate $500 each to Care Outreach and Community Action Gympie. In addition, we had loads of leftover items which have been donated to Little Haven, so they can sell the items and raise funds for their services in palliative care and cancer support services.

Bible Study Book—Term 2 2016
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:16–17 NIV This term at church and in bible study groups we’ll be hearing from the first five chapters of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome.

Easter Services 2016
Good Friday and Easter Sunday are at the focus of what Jesus came to do, and the centre of Christianity. One of the earliest summaries of the Christian message is “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared" (1 Corinthians 15:3–5) Join us this Easter to listen and reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus as recorded in Luke’s gospel.
