November 2022 Update

Dear Southern Cross Centre Family,

As we approach the end of 2022, we reflect on the Lord’s guidance and provision in what has turned out to be a very eventful year. We thank God for the diminishing impact of Covid-19 and recall how it affected our ability to come together as a worshipping community. We celebrate the renovation of our church worship facilities and look forward to stage two of renovations, due to commence in the new year. We also recognise changes in paid staff and rejoice as volunteers are stepping up to serve within the ministries of the church.

This is my prayer in this season for us as a Southern Cross family and adapted from Hebrews 13:20-21 (Amp).

Father, I pray that You will strengthen, complete, and perfect us; that You will make us what we should be; that You will equip us with everything good to carry out Your will while You work in us and accomplish what is pleasing in Your sight.

May we be the community (common – unity) and be who we have been created to be.

Blessings,

Tracy Hilton
