NAAC Weekend Away – Reflections

In June, our church went to Blue Mountains for a ‘Weekend Away’. The theme for this weekend was ‘Time Away’. Most of us are not only busy and tired from our daily life but we also placed meditation on God’s word after all the other things we see as important.

It was time away from the distractions, busyness and daily routines of our life. It was time away to build each up other through loving, knowing and serving. It was time away to listen and talk to God and be reminded of how to live as God’s people.

Volunteer with Non-Profits


Since discussing about simplified missional living a few weeks ago, we learnt that one way to live a missional life is to volunteer with non-profits:

“Find a non-profit in your part of the city and take a Saturday a month to serve your city. Bring your neighbors, your friends, or your small group. Spend time with your church serving your city. Once a month. You can do it!”

In July we will have our own Brunchie’s mission to reach out to a community. This will be a chance for you to serve our city and connect with people.

Perhaps you feel that as a Christian you ought to demonstrate your love and care to those who are in need for help. Perhaps you know a friend who loves to volunteer and would like to get involved. Maybe this is a chance for you and them to play a part and see Christ’s love in action.

We all live in either an apartment block or house and most likely don’t know many of our neighbours. Why not connect with them through this mission? You could also do this individually at your own time to get to know your neighbours. It is a non-intrusive way to meet them.

Be a part of the team and let’s get together to serve our city and to share the gospel and bear fruit for Jesus’ kingdom!
