Adventist Churches Close in Victoria

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the world is currently facing and Australian Government restrictions, our churches will remained closed, as per guidelines. We are however, working to run church as normally as possible, providing pastoral care to our people and in response to community need. People have lost jobs. Others are unwell. Stress will be increasing. Our pastoral team is working to find creative ways to meet needs and provide pastoral care.

Is Anything Planned over Easter instead of Big Camp?

 

Dick Duerksen was one of our presenters lined up for Big Camp this year.  He describes himself as an itinerant pollinator of grace and shares the good news about grace around the world, using narrative-style presentations.

Big Camp 2020 is no longer on, but you will, however, still be able to hear Dick as he shares with us from his home in Oregon, exerpts from Nicodemus’ “journal”.  Relive the events of Christ’s last days through the eyes of this ‘silent’ believer.

Friday Evening, Sabbath morning and Sunday morning, streaming from ▶️ Lilydale Church and ▶️ Mildura Church at 7.30pm Friday, 9am Saturday and 10am Sunday over the Easter Weekend.

Dick’s book, The Story Catcher, retailing for $21.95, is available at the ABC  and is full of powerful stories that will enrich your spiritual life.

FOR KIDS – BigCamp@home

I want to worship on Sabbath!

Great! We’re here to serve you. While we can’t meet in person, we have Churches that are providing live streaming services on Sabbath. Past Sabbath worship videos are also available for you to watch. 

These Churches are currently live-streaming.  Given that Places of Worship have now been closed our churches are streaming from elsewhere in compliance with the latest restrictions…  The below links will also take you to archives where you can access past sermons.

How Can I serve?

ADRA in Victoria has been activated and is looking for people who are able to help across a range of areas.  There is more information available here

I have a question…

Current world issues have created a lot of questions in the community about what the Bible says regarding what’s happening at the present time. 

Pr David Riley addresses some of these in a series of interactive webinars which have been made available at revelationofhope.info

Or if you would like to email your question please do so and we will endeavour to get back to you promptly.
