Southern Cross Centre Update

September 2021

Dear Southern Cross Centre Family,

Since our last monthly update, there has been a flurry of activity and spring is just around the corner.  Two weeks ago, we began seven weeks of prayer each Tuesday afternoon from 5 to 6 pm in the sanctuary.  We encourage you to join us for this informal but meaningful time of prayer for our church, the world, and whatever God leads us to pray for.  We also gather at 9:30 each Sunday morning for pre-worship prayer.

Please note the following items happening at Southern Cross Centre throughout September:


Sermon Series - The Book of Acts

5 September | John McElroy | Acts 2:14-41 | Father's Day & Communion
12 September | Jessie Wakelin | Acts 3:1-10 | Community Lunch
19 September | Ron Ings | Acts 3:11-26 | Mission Sunday (Building a Discipling Culture)
26 September | Alaine McElroy | Acts 4:1-22


Building Renovation Update

A new Development Application has been submitted to the City of Stirling that contains revisions to our previous renovation plan.  Once approved, the DA will be forwarded to a builder to begin the project.  Approval for the DA could take from 4-6 weeks.  Please pray for this project and that we gain the necessary approvals ASAP.

Community Lunch

Churchlands Community Cultural Trust Fund - 2020 Financial Audit

As you may remember from our AGM in June, Fred Boshart (our chairman of the elders) mentioned that we were conducting an audit on the Churchlands Community Cultural Trust Fund, the entity that owns our building. This finalised audit is now available for anyone to read. Just email Bronwen at reception to request a copy.


Thank you all for your ongoing prayers and support of our wonderful church!
