This might be my last post of the year so I thought I’d give you a good idea what’s happening over Christmas:
I hope this information has been helpful.
Lastly, it was very encouraging to be a part of our baptism and confirmation service this past Sunday. We leave these services filled with the goodness of Jesus because we’ve heard the great work he’s done in people’s lives (particularly young people’s lives in this case). Great stuff.
I recently wrote about our upcoming baptism and confirmation service. I’m pleased to announce we have 5 people getting confirmed and 2 getting baptised.
It should be a great night. Come along and hear their stories, witness the commitments of these young people and celebrate the promises they make.
The following week is Diamond Creek Community Carols. And the week after that is Christmas Eve!
Our first Sunday@6 service after Christmas will be 7th January 2018.
All year we’ve held fortnightly dinners at 5pm before our evening service. This week will be our last for this year.
The following weeks will be our Baptism/Confirmation Service followed by Community Carols and Christmas Eve!
Thanks to all our legendary cooks who have helped out during the year and helped make our service a more welcoming and hospitable place 🙂
Sometimes we run some fun times before the service on a Sunday. This week we run our last for the year. Like the recent youth event, it’s games based, but not epic like the youth event because we only have an hour.
There’ll be a bunch of short-and-sharp games to play that we hope will bring some fun social time to everyone who attends.
Details? It’s at 5pm. It’s free. Just turn up and have fun 🙂

On December 10th Sunday@6 will be hosting a Baptism and Confirmation Service where people have the opportunity to stand up in front of their church community and publicly commit to following Jesus.
In the Anglican tradition, confirmation is for people who have been baptised as infants or children and, now that they’re older, want to affirm the promises that were made on their behalf.
We’ve already got a bunch of young people keen to be involved. If someone in your family would like to be baptised or confirmed then please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Sunday we have an information/preparation session which you’d be welcome to come to. You don’t have to be 100% committed, just interested, we can lock you in (or not) after the session. It’s at 3pm in Meeting Room 1 at St. John’s.
Just a quick note to let you know that tonight’s youth event will be held in the portable building between the main church building and the church office (which looks like a house, just to make it more confusing). It’s commonly known as the Pizza Box.
We’ve received a number of RSVPs but we can fit a few more people so it’s not too late to sign up. Rocking up without RSVPing might be okay, it would just be slightly risky as the games we will be playing have maximum player quotas so we couldn’t guarantee an unexpected arrival will play every game, depends which games we end up playing I guess.
Click here for more info and to RSVP.
Hopefully you’re aware of our Epic Board Games event this Friday. I wrote about it here previously.
We’re currently at a point where we need two more rsvps to go ahead with the event. The more people who come, the more flexible we can be with what games we play and how we run the night and it’s always helpful to have approximate numbers.
For those who have already rsvp’d, thanks heaps, we’ll contact you directly regarding the location as we’re still waiting to see numbers before we decide where we’ll meet 🙂
