St Stephens - Hargreaves St, Emu Creek & Strathfieldsaye Uniting Church – Wellington Rd, Strathfieldsaye
Abraham Lincoln said it well when he said; “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”
During the month of October we will be prayerfully reassessing our commitment – that is – the use of our time, money and effort for the Lord.
Please pick up your Commitment Pack and take this opportunity to commit again to the promise we all make to take up our cross and follow Jesus.
The Final Service for St Stephen’s, Emu Creek
Sadly it was discovered earlier this year that the charming St Stephen’s Church at Emu Creek was damaged beyond repair. White ants, along with other structural issues meant that the decision was made to further the relationship with the Strathfieldsaye Uniting Church and meet every week from now on in their building in the main street. The Rev’d Steve Weickhardt has worked hard with both denominations and the result is a “well meshed” congregation on Sunday mornings in conjunction with the new family focussed ministry on Saturday afternoons.
St Stephen’s began from a meeting held on 19th October 1886 with the Foundation Stone being laid 2 years later in September 1888. Ironically the final service will be Sunday 19th October 2014 at 2 pm – on the grounds of the church in Emu Creek – 128 years after that initial meeting.
It is with the mixed feelings of excitement and sadness that we announce today that Rob and Camille Imberger and their children will be leaving us in late October this year to take up a new position. Rob has been appointed as Senior Minister of Wellspring Anglican Church in Sandy Bay – Hobart – Tasmania.
Rob and Camille joined us in February 2010 from Melbourne – and since then their three children Evie, Harper and Jude have been born.
Rob has been a vital and dynamic part of the Ministry Team of this parish and we have appreciated his passionate preaching, theological insight and constant support – to name but a few of his many attributes.
The Imberger’s last Sunday with us will be Sunday 26th October and their start date at Wellspring Anglican will be Sunday 23rd November.
This is a significant appointment for Rob and his family and we give thanks to our great God for the last 4 ½ years and pray that Lord’s blessing will be upon their travels and the path He is leading them on.
Our CMS Link missionaries will be visiting the parish on the weekend of October 25-26
Come along to the Strathfieldsaye Uniting Church on Saturday 25th Oct
- It starts at 5 pm
