---

We invite you to open your doors and 'be the church' to those around you!

This Sabbath, choose to gather together and create a Small Group to worship during the Sabbath Hours, claiming the promise Matthew 18:20
"For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."

Please aim to include the following four aspects:
1) Bible Study (lots of great resources can be found at https://disciple.org.au)
2) Prayer
3) Food (keep it simple)
4) Sharing Time (testimonies and offering - eGiving)

It only takes a spark to get the fire going,
go ahead and LIGHT UP OUR WORLD!

If you Zoom in at 11:00am you will be able to participate with one of the Small Groups that are meeting.

NOTE there will be no sermon as each Small Group is doing their own Church.

Our Board has been working hard on developing a Covid-19 Safety Plan so our facilities can once again be used for small groups. We need to comply with all the NSW Government regulations regarding Covid-19, including social distancing, hygiene and record keeping. If your group or department would like to use the church facilities this is now an option. Please go to our church website https://alburyadventist.church/church-facility-booking/, read through our Covid-19 Safety Plan and fill out a booking form. If you need assistance, please contact Fiona, Steve or Tony who can help you through the process. Our Board will work with you to ensure that we comply with government regulations.
