Approaching Coronaviris without panic

Approaching Coronaviris without panic Originally written By Simon Hill and Craig Broman (with help from the Adelaide staff team); and sent as an email to contacts within the Adelaide City Bible Forum on March 11th 2020.

Cans In the Van 2019

Last year we ran Put Cans in the Van and were amazed at all that came in! So we are doing it again in 2019. There are many families in Adelaide that struggle to make ends meet and cover the essentials—particularly at Christmas. Our church community, in partnership with Anglicare SA, are gathering food donations […]

The fruits of the Spirit

On Sunday I was preaching on 1 Samuel 10:1-16 and focused on the gift of God’s Spirit which was to have not a small impact on Saul. Verse 6 says Saul will be changed into a different person! With the context of ch. 9 behind and ch. 11 in front; we see that Saul indeed […]

I’m not much of a blogger, but commenting on a current social issue from a Christian perspective in a way that is not simply saying ‘no’–is a really good thing to do. So through my links to City Bible forum in Adelaide I was asked to do a guest blog. It’s about our use of […]

Stories

There is a power in stories. I enjoy them, watch adults and children fixed to a good story in a book or at the movies. Each of us has a story, which consists of events and how these events impacted our emotions and feelings. But how these stories inform our identity (who we are), and […]
