Here are some ways our community is sharing in this time of growth. We would love to share in this season with you.
Deep listening questions
Our deep listening questions for this season are:
Where does God want me to grow at this time?
Where does God want us to grow?
What can I do to nurture growth in this area?
This is the question for all of us, of all ages to pray about, with openness and excited expectation. Toli would love to have a cuppa with you and explore this with you. Give him a call any time on 0438 087 206.
Each week of Lent we can spend time with a devotion written by folk in our community. These will be emailed to you and hard copies will be available at Sunday services.

The ehills leadership team
2018 PALM SUNDAY WALK FOR JUSTICE
The 2018 Walk For Justice For Refugees will be on Sunday 25 March at 2pm, commencing at the State Library (music from 1.30pm). The Walk will proceed through the Bourke Street mall and return to the State Library. We expect that people from all faith groups, community organisations and unions will join the 2018 Palm Sunday Walk for Justice for Refugees, bringing banners and other messages of support in solidarity with refugees and people seeking asylum.
In recent years thousands of people have attended the Palm Sunday Walk for Justice – let’s work together to keep up this momentum and demonstrate the growing concern across the community about the harsh and punitive treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.

Surrender Conference Saints & Citizens March 23-25
‘Set your hearts on things above, not on earthly things…and the Word became flesh and moved into the neighbourhood’.
Consumerism and conflict, politics and power, fear and injustice mark the narrative of our world and our streets. Humanity was created from the dust of the land, yet God breathed His life into us – but have we lost connection to both? As we follow Jesus how do we understand and balance our call to seek His kingdom coming in the now of our neighbourhoods and world, yet have faith and find hope in the promise of a creation made whole. Can we embody the way of Jesus now as citizens in our places and world, yet hold an eternal identity as saints? G
