March: Greater Wollongong Region Anglican Outreach

Jesus Is____. Mission in Anglican Churches
During March,  Anglican churches and schools throughout Sutherland, Macarthur, Southern Highlands, Illawarra and the Shoalhaven regions are taking part in a mission using the concept Jesus Is___. The purpose of the mission is to provide opportunities for people to hear about Jesus and respond to the Good News of the Gospel. Of equal importance, is the training, equipping and encouraging of followers of Jesus in having conversations with people about Jesus. Or to put this another way - growing in confidence and skills in chatting with people about Jesus and how following Jesus shapes how we live.
To this end the Jesus Is___.  concept (with associated website & social media possibilities) was chosen as a framework for the mission. The mission will include a partnership with Moore Theological College as teams of students and faculty will be based in churches for the week 18-25th March.
A major regional for high school students called  'Free to Be', will be held at the WIN Entertainment Centre on Friday 23 MarchFollow link for details.

This course was introduced into the Illawarra around 20 years ago by Rev John Thew and Rev David Bartlett and has spurred many people on in mission endeavours over that time. The course this year will be run from Woonona Presbyterian Church in Gray St Woonona, Wednesday evening 7-9pm, beginning  14th March through to 20th June (excluding two weeks school holidays). As always it will be run by trained facilitators.
Wollongong CityServe begins March 17th.
"The first project will be on 17th of March 2018 from 8am-3pm. at Corrimal High School. People can volunteer their time, skills and services for 1, 2 hours or more.
We feel strongly that what we are going to achieve will bring great outcome for the community. I always believe in small beginnings as the word of God says
"do not despise small beginnings". 
So far, we have raised some funds (~ $5,000) - but we still need more. 
As you may be aware, we are currently not funded by Council. We are relying on donations from local churches, businesses and individuals to do good things together in our area."  Hengki Widjaja. Follow link for details
