LIFE FEST this Saturday 25 May!

Book the day for LifeFest in Bicentennial Park. That beautiful day when the churches of Tamworth get together and put on a party for their neighbours – and they come in thousands. A day for Christians to model the love of Jesus in many ways, and people go away different because they’ve had a brush with Him through the kindness of His people.

11am – 3pm
Bicentennial Park, Tamworth

Everything is FREE!

A Dinner for the Future

The people of Oxley Vale Anglican Community Church enjoyed a great evening together last Friday, eating together and thinking about the good things happening in the church and hearing plans for how those good things might be shared with their community.

The Vicar, Simon Carter, encouraged those present to think about change, whether good or bad, and contrasted the inevitability of change in the world we live in with the unchangeableness of Jesus. Chaplain Tom Magill presented some demographic research on the Oxley Vale area and encouraged the church to think how best it can serve the people in that area. Year 13 Gap Year Student Matt Smith gave an outline of his involvement in this year with young people, conferences and training.

A big ‘Thank You’ to all who helped set-up, cook, clean or otherwise contribute on the night!

Clean Up Australia Day

Sunday 3rd March was scheduled as Clean Up Australia Day, and the members of Oxley Vale Anglican pitched in to lend a hand, gathering bags of rubbish from around the premises of the school where we meet.

This is an important community event in communities around Australia, and, for the Christian community it is an opportunity to reflect locally God’s global love for his creation. As the Psalmist says in Psalm 24 –

The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains,
The world, and those who dwell in it.
For He has founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the rivers.
