About Me

As a child, I was brought up in a Catholic family and was because of that I always believed in God, but I didn’t really know or understand the gospel. It wasn’t until a teenager that I truly understood that I was a sinner, and that Jesus had died to save me. I have been married to Adam since 2012 and live at home with 2 dogs, a cat and A LOT of chickens. Adam and I have been attending Rosemeadow Anglican Church for the last couple of years, and now I feel privileged to do my apprenticeship there as well. I’ll be working on two main ministries while I do MTS. I’ll be running our playtime group for parents and children ages 0 – 5 and I’ll be working on a portfolio called Membership which is how, under God, we can help newcomers connect in to church and become regular members of our congregations.

Primary Scripture

I really enjoy teaching scripture each week. I am currently teaching a K-2 class that has about 12 kids in it. I’m super thankful for the opportunity I’ve had to get to know my kids over the last year and a half. I have been able to see the kids grow in the understanding and knowledge of the bible.

Recently we were speaking about being a part of God’s family. One girl who is in year 2 asked me how we become a part of God’s family. I told her that we need to believe that Jesus died on the cross for us and say sorry to God for the things we do wrong. The girl then closed her eyes for a few seconds, opened them and said ‘All done!”

I’m thankful to God for those moments where I see the gospel working in the lives of the kids at scripture and that I get to speak to them about God on a weekly basis.

Membership

We are at a really exciting time with our membership ministries at the moment. We are currently getting ready to have our first official ‘Extended Church’. This is basically where once a term we put on a BBQ and have lunch together to help newcomers to get to know people a little bit better and so that as a church we can also grow in relationship with each other as well. We are pretty excited about getting this up and running so far.

We are also currently trialling starting a online church directory so that we can be in contact with one another more easily. As of yesterday we have asked evening church to sign up and trial it, with plans to roll it out to the morning congregation and Appin over the next few months.

Vocational Bible College

VBC has been going well so far this term. I am constantly being challenged and changed by learning from God’s word. I am thankful that I have been able to study and do MTS at the same time, so I can both do ministry and learn from God’s word as well. I have really been enjoying our Christian Ethics subject and also going through Romans in New Testament 2. I am mostly finished my assignments for this term so looking forward to a little bit of a break (and getting started on what is due next term).

Dates in October

  • 5th-9th October – I am taking leave over these dates in the school holidays – thankful for time to spend with Adam and to rest.
  • 16th October – I start back at Vocational Bible College after the school holidays

Prayer Points

  1. Thank God for the opportunity I have to teach scripture. Thank God for the children and pray that they keep growing in their understanding of who Jesus is. Pray that they will repent and turn to Him.
  2. Thank God for holidays! Pray that I am able to get some rest over that time.
  3. Thank God for the work he is doing at Rosemeadow/Appin Anglican Churches. Pray He continues to work through the membership ministry that we are starting and that God continue to change people’s heart to trust and believe in Him.
