Join us this Wednesday evening from 5.30pm for a community BBQ and #ChangeTheHeart service. Led by Common Grace, ChangeTheHeart is a service of acknowledgement, lament and prayer as we approach January 26th – a day of mourning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. As we regather for the year, our BBQ and ChangeTheHeart service is a chance for us to enjoy time together in gratitude, and create space to hear the call toward a vision in the world of reconciliation, healing and restoration.
