Sunday services at The Hub


SUNDAY SERVICES: What an epic month we've had! Two services now happen each Sunday at The Hub and we are still live each week online too.  A huge shout out to the AWESOME team that has made all of that possible and all the extra work that has gone into it.  It's been a huge blessing to be together worshipping, serving and connecting back at The Hub and online.  We kicked off a new sermon series towards the end of the month 'Whatever Happened To?'  as well as messages from Pastor Kate and David Shearman.  We welcomed Holly Crisp, Lois Mugleston, Amanda and Jade Musgrove and Joe Napier into membership and had Phil lead us in communion from his home.  We also heard an update on the "Grow" from Lynne Tan.


RPM:  This month we prayed and worshipped together.  There was a time of praying for people in the room and situations that are impacting our church family.  It was a powerful evening breaking strongholds and being in the presence of God.


ROCK CHICKS:  The ladies had an evening hearing wise words on forgiveness from Liz Clements and Lynne Tan.  Both women shared personal stories that showed the impact unforgiveness can have on your life and the freedom that comes when we give situations to God.


ROCKER FELLAS:  The guys met together on Zoom to have a catch up and to spend time praying for each other, the church and other situations that were placed on their hearts.


ROCK LEADERSHIP ACADEMY:  Our first session for Leadership Academy took place teaching on 'Self leadership – we can’t even begin to lead others until we can lead ourselves'.  We looked at Time Management (how we apportion our time), Mind Management (what we’re thinking on), Emotional Management (Self image/self respect and self esteem), Relational Management (mentoring and accountability) and Spiritual Management (good Godly habits).  Followed by a great discussion on each point with lots of strong takeaways for everyone to start implementing into their lives!  A great first session socially distanced in the lounge at the Hub. So much potential in the room!


FIC:  The Freedom In Christ group has been meeting weekly on Zoom and have been hearing about 'Our Daily Choices', 'The Battle For our Minds', 'Handling Emotions Well', and 'Forgiving From The Heart'.  There has been some great discussions in the FIC small groups with people having revelations about what they have heard.

It was amazing to be back in The Hub for Sunday services this month.  Check out what a few of our members had to say about being back.


'I was so pleased when it was announced that we are allowed to meet together as a church again. It's one thing to do church online in the comfort of your own home with only your close family, but something extraordinary happens when we meet together for corporate worship.  The way we meet now is a bit different and my family and I are not able to attend church together but we are all so happy to be back and I think our amazing Pastors and their team are doing an excellent job to keep us all going.


Hebrews 10:24 'Let us not give up on meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the day approaching.'

- Lynne Norman


'I was looking forward to coming back to a live service. It was a great experience to be in the Hub again and I enjoyed it very much.'

- Ervin Sisak

'Getting back into church has been the best thing for me. I had so missed being with everyone, and being in the service made it so much more alive and enjoyable.'

- Chris Buckland

'It has been really great getting back to church, seeing our extended family again, albeit socially distanced. But the biggest blessing for me has been collective worship I have so missed that. There is a different dynamic of God's presence in worshipping together.'

- Jeremy Plant
