Joining the saints at St Augustine’s Neutral Bay–once more

We’re very pleased to say that I have accepted a position as an assistant minister at St Augustine’s Anglican Church, Neutral Bay, Sydney. I was a student minister at Neutral Bay in 2004-2005 and we very much enjoyed working in partnership with the rector, Craig Roberts. One of the present assistant ministers and his wife are our good friends David and Jacqui Ould. They are dearly loved at, and love, St Augustine’s, but after 9 years there, they have recently announced their intention to seek new ministry challenges and opportunities elsewhere. This will leave a staff vacancy at St Augustine’s at some point in 2012 or early 2013, which we will then take up.

We were prayerfully considering a few other ministry options, but decided that this position was the wisest choice. Not only will it be a great opportunity to proclaim Jesus and serve the saints at St Augustine’s, it is quite close to the centre of Sydney and will give me some flexibility if I am able to find any occasional or part-time work lecturing in biblical studies in any of the Sydney theological colleges (if you do happen to know of any such work, please let me know!).

In the interim from July until possibly December, we will be living with Bronwyn’s parents in North Richmond (North-West Sydney) and enjoying fellowship with our home church family at Kurrajong.

    God is nothing like the Elf on the Shelf. God’s power is far beyond us. Yet God’s power is at work in us. So God’s glory is our joyful goal.
  • EducationWhen education is not the answer (Romans 2:17–27)
    When education is not the answer (Romans 2:17–27). Amongst all the pragmatics & demands & struggles of ministry, you first need to know the why of ministry. You need deep and strong theology, and to apply that theology to your life & ministry.
  • Colosseum with skyThis is huge (Ephesians 3:18–19)
    God’s plans for his world, and his love for us in Christ, are vast and awe-inspiring. They change everything. That’s why need prayer to grasp them.
  • Inscription behind table in St Stephens Anglican Church NewtownWhere does God live? (Ephesians 3:16–17)
    Can God’s presence be with us? If so, how? In bread and wine? In a tangible experience of worship? In Ephesians, Paul speaks about how Christ dwells among us.
  • Photo by Greg Rakozy on UnsplashWho are you praying to? (Ephesians 3:14–15)
    Most people pray. But not everyone prays in the same way. Your view of God will have a profound effect on your prayer life. Who are you praying to?
  • Photo by Jilbert Ebrahimi on UnsplashWith Israel Folau (repost)
    Given the current controversy surrounding Israel Folau's social media post, a piece I wrote for the ABC News website has again become highly topical.
  • My afflictions, your glory (Ephesians 3:12–13)
    We can react to suffering by avoiding or escaping or denying or rationalising it. For Paul, the gospel of Christ leads to a profoundly different reaction.
  • Ceiling Pattern, Christ Church College Staircase, OxfordGod’s multidimensional wisdom (Ephesians 3:9–11)
    Do you think being a Christian is boring? If so, maybe your view of God is one-dimensional. But Paul sees God and his purposes in vivid multidimensional glory.
  • People and the Post, Postal History from the Smithsonian's National Postal MuseumThe meaning of ministry (Ephesians 3:7–8)
    Christian ministry is hard. So why be involved at all? Pragmatics and techniques alone can’t answer that question. We need to know the meaning of ministry.
  • Photo by Sai de Silva on UnsplashThe open secret (Ephesians 3:4–6)
    How can we know God’s will? Some try to see God’s will in the progress of history. But this is disastrous. God’s will is something we can’t work out by ourselves.
