|You don’t need to negotiate
an obstacle course to get here.
There are no fences to climb over.
The world is welcome here.
Nothing human is excluded.
Laughter is not unusual;
tears are not seen as being out of place.
The wisdom of everyday experience
is listened to and honoured.
The real and authentic are at home here.
Stillness allows the soul to breathe and listen.
Poems and paintings preach eloquent sermons.
Musicians fill our spirits with song.
Buried gifts are unearthed,
and the community is enriched.
We drink from the Mystery and are refreshed,
feast on acceptance and are strengthened,
bathe in hope and are renewed.
Our mind is kept fit, given a good workout.
New territories are opened up for exploration;
exciting discoveries are made.
We are set free to soar, like pelicans taking to the air.
Joys are celebrated, concerns are shared.
The unheard and uncared for are given a voice.
Pierced by love, burdened with blessings,
we are readied to face and embrace the world.
The Christ Church Community meets for worship at 10am on Sunday mornings.
We are an inclusive and theologically progressive community that seeks to celebrate the best of the old with the possibility of the new. Our services are child and adult friendly and on the first Sunday of every month we celebrate Holy Communion, to which all are welcome.
Our major community engagement is expressed though the Effective Living Centre.
