Hello, website visitors!
I am organising PDFs on the topic “The Christian Hope for Australia”. These PDFs are bite-size sections of the 50,000 word paper that I have written on this topic. You will find them added into our resources section.
At Ithaca, we place our greatest efforts on our Sunday corporate worship, edification and fellowship. This Spring season I am preaching on 1 Thessalonians at the 9.30am morning church and I am preaching on some topical messages from the Gospels and also from Romans at the 5.30pm evening church. In recent months, we have placed greater effort into organising our hymns and song of praise to be relevant to the theme of the service and enjoyable and singable for both men and women. To help us in corporate worship, we have been strengthening the role of singers and musicians to lead us. At morning church, a Biblically sound Kidschurch helps to edify the children. At evening church, the message is geared to help youth and those with English as a second language to grasp how God’s truth addresses contemporary life. Members of evening church have also helped with several mimes and we have been able to increase our understanding of how God acts in our times through short videos and podcasts. Finally, we do not move from the foundations of Christian corporate worship, always placing an emphasis on prayer and the power of united prayer as we gather together to bring our requests to God. We have seen God answer prayer and sustain our faith from week to week.
At a time when there is so much happening in a big city like Brisbane, and people can spend free hours watching millions of things on internet, it is not our purpose to provide some alternative entertainment. We desire to do what God has commanded us to do, and that is, provide Sunday corporate worship to the glory of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All are welcome.
Our next big community event will be Christmas:
Christmas Eve service 6.30-7.30pm
Christmas Day service 9.30-10.30am
