Bible Study Sunday: In the context of Holy Eucharist rite II liturgy, our second Sunday service begins at 10am with the opening hymn and bible readings. Following the Gospel reading there is a Bible Study based on the readings of that day. Our Bible Study coordinator gives out the Bible text to study in previous weeks, people are welcome to share insights, ask questions and see the relevance of the texts discussed in our contemporary context.
The Creed is followed immediately by the prayers of the people and we invite congregants to offer prayers in their native languages. The greetings of Peace, announcements and the offertory precede the Great Thanksgiving. Our service ends with blessings and closing hymn around 11.30am.
Our children join the Lutheran Sunday School classes between 10:15am and 11:15am. Children who are too young or unable to join classes stay with our child care providers at the nursery. All children join us for communion and blessing around 11.30am.
A time of social hour with coffee and snack begins immediately after service; during this time, people get to know each other and chat with the priest.
