G’day and welcome to our church web site
As you’ll notice, we are a multi-generational family of believers seeking to CONNECT with God and people, GROW in our relationships with God and each other, and ENGAGE within our local community in healthy God-honoring ways. As a congregational entity our church has been active in Hamilton for just on 150 years. Many of our current church members have been involved here for quite a few years of this while others have joined in more recently.
We love having new people come to join us for Sunday morning worship services. Our services are family friendly, warm and relaxed. We love having young children involved in our services and our kids programs and our facilities cater very well for everyone. During the week we have a number of home groups operating as well for bible study, fellowship and mutual support. Please let us know if you’d like to be linked in with one of these. Our facilities are also available for hire by other organizations in Hamilton including catering services and there are a number of groups who use our facilities regularly.
On Sunday and Tuesday late afternoons we also run a really fun activity down at the Hamilton Lake (next to the rowing club buildings) between 5.30-7.30pm. We call it ‘Twilight paddling n’ chips’. I have 7 sea kayaks and all the safety gear to go with them, and there is an open invitation for family and friends to join me for some enjoyable ‘water therapy’ as I like to call it. People may choose to come for a paddle, or simply set up a picnic spot where they can chat and watch the others. Most bring a byo picnic tea (chips from the local fish and chip shop is a popular easy option too of course). It’s a great way to get to know one another.
As the minister at HBCC, I’m also available for visits during the week (give me a call on 0419735267 to organize a mutually suitable time and place) to provide encouragement and pastoral support. I’d love to catch up with you and help you in whatever way I can, especially helping you access and participate in the broader life of our church family.
