About us

認識我們

Chinese
華人

Our congregation is largely ethnic Chinese. However there is a cultural diversity ranging from third generation Australian to those who have newly arrived in Australia. English, Cantonese and Mandarin are used in our church, with English as the common language. Although we are a Chinese Church, we warmly welcome people of all ethnic backgrounds.

我們的會眾大部份都是華人,分別擁有不同的次文化背景。當中有第三代的澳洲移民也有新移民。在教會裡,英語,粵語及華語都並重地使用,而英語則是我們的共通語言。我們歡迎任何種族及文化背景的朋友參與我們的教會。

Presbyterian
長老會

While we are Presbyterian in terms of the governing structure and the Reformed doctrine, we extend fellowship to all who accept the Bible as the Word of God and the highest authority for their beliefs and practices.

我們教會隸屬長老宗。長老宗的特色在於其長老治會的制度及改革宗神學。我們非常樂意與所有接受聖經為神的話語及我們生活的首要標準的基督徒相交。

Church
教會

We are not just a collection of individual or family units participating in some regular activities. We are a community of Christ, and a spiritual family committed to each other, jointly partaking of the Great Commission given by Christ.

我們不僅是一群參與一些常規活動的個人或家庭。我們更是一個屬基督的群體,及一個彼此委身的屬靈大家庭,共同承擔基督賜予的大使命。

Pastoral Letter 25th July 2021

‘Your value is not hinged on this lockdown’

For some of us during this lockdown season, they may need to read this again. ‘Your value is not tied to how you respond to this lockdown’. From my experience of three (!!!) Melbourne lockdowns, lockdown has a way of convincing us that we need to either continue to momentum of things pre-COVID, or that everyone else is doing great, while we ourselves are not.

If I may encourage you, God’s love for His Church is not impacted by this lockdown, God’s love for you and purpose for you hasn’t changed either. The only thing that has changed, is the context of His love and purpose. If you’re thriving during this time, your spiritual life is going great, your family is closer than ever, then awesome! Keep at it. But if like many many other Christians within Sydney, your life and mood has fluctuated from this break in momentum and rhythm, or your work and business has suffered because of it and it seems trying and never ending; I just want to say, you’re not alone. God is still working in you. You are still valuable and precious.

I have a few reflections on what God had taught me through scripture and my experience through four (!!) lockdowns, and perhaps it may encourage you too in your journey towards thriving again.

1) Find a routine that involves reflection for your inner growth.

In Psalm 1, the Psalms describes those that meditate on God’s Word as ‘a tree planted by the steams of water, bearing fruit in its season’. Some seasons are not fruit bearing seasons, but it doesn’t mean we do not need sustenance and nourishing from God. Are you looking after yourself this season? Are you taking time in prayer and in meditation? It’s so important to not put a pause on our well-being, God is still at work within you.

2) Let the change in life schedule help you say no to dysfunctional habits.

God’s work isn’t just in the continuation of our life, but also in the ceasing of things which may diminish our joy and satisfaction in Him. For many of us, the issue isn’t that our lives aren’t productive enough, it’s that it’s too full. Too full to enjoy the fellowship of our family, the community of brothers and sisters around us. In the Epistle to the Church of Ephesus, Paul implores the church to, ‘put off your old self’ as a way to work out our salvation. Sometimes, subtraction is not a bad thing for our lives.

3) Reflect on how you may thrive in this season.

One of the temptations I’ve seen people succumb to during lockdown, is to lower our expectations of God to meet our circumstance. That because we aren’t able to do what we used to, then we shouldn’t try anything new at all. In Philippians, Paul writes from a time in his life where he was restriction from any sort of missional or liturgical ministry within his life, but yet he still writes (Phil 4:8), ‘Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.’. We must recognise God is still at work within our church, our family and even our own hearts. Even if they are in areas what we aren’t choosing to focus on, it’s still an opportunity to thrive in Christ. For some of us this may mean simply getting in more exercise, reading that book to invest in our lives again, or try something new within our ministries.

Hopefully these things are helpful to you. Lockdown will end, all ministries will end, but God’s love for us is eternal (Roman 8:38-39), just keep going.

“你的價值不取決於這次疫情封鎖”

當我們身處封城期間,對有些人來說,可能需要重讀 “你的人生價值並非着你對封城的反應而定”。對我這個曾經經歷墨爾本三次封城的過來人來說,封城使我確實明白有兩個選擇: 一是繼續保持那在疫情爆發前對各樣事物所抱的衝勁,或者,看他人都是一帆風順,而自己卻是一事無成。

容我給你一點鼓勵,神對祂教會的愛,無一絲毫受封城衝擊所影響。神對你的愛、人生目標亦無任何改變。惟一改變是那愛和目標所處的景況。如果你現在茁壯成長,靈命有長進,有親密的家庭生活,那真的值得感恩!請繼續努力。但是,如果你像很多很多在悉尼的其他基督徒那樣,人生及情緒因熱情及生活節奏受破壞而起伏不休,導至你的工作或事情因而受損,感到筋疲力倦及茫茫無期;我只想對你說,你並不孤單。因神仍在你裏面作工,在祂你仍是寶貴並滿有價值的。

在四次封城中,神透過聖經話語教導我,或可藉此幫助你在這段人生的路程重新得力,過有活力的生活:

  (1)建立一個專注內在成長、反思的生活習慣。

詩篇一章形容那些思想神的話語的人,尤如一棵樹裁在溪水旁,按時結果子。亦即是說有些季節雖非結果的時候,卻不是不需要神持續的灌蓋和養護。同樣地,你在這個季節有否好好照顧自己?有否花時間在禱告及默想上?不停地保持我們整體的健康是非常重要,神仍在你裏面作工。

   (2) 讓這人生秩序的轉變幫助你拒絕不良的習慣。

神不單在我們的生命上持續地作工,祂還致力消除那些使我們未能在祂裏面得到喜樂和滿足的障碍。或者,我們當中有不少人的人生並非不夠有成效, 而是太滿了,滿到未能享受與家人共聚及與主內弟兄姊妹團契生活的樂趣。在致以弗所教會書信中,保羅懇切地規勸他們要“脱去你們的舊我” ,去做成得救的工夫。有時,“減除”對我們人生並非一件壞事。

    (3)默想如何能在這季候活得更豐盛。

在封城期間,我察覺到一個很易使人跌倒的試探, 就是輕看神對我們需要的供應。原因是當我們不能做平常習慣了的事情時,我們就不去嚐試做一些新的東西。腓立比書4:8,保羅當時面對宣教和敬拜事工上的限制,雖然如此,他仍寫到“弟兄們,我還有未盡的話,凡是真實的、可敬的、公義的、清潔的、可愛的、有美名的,若有什麼德行,若有什麼稱讚,這些事你們都要思念。”。我們必須認識到神仍然在我們的教會、家庭及我們的心裏工作。雖然那些不是我們想專注侍奉的地方,但仍可成為使我們在基督裏能活得更豐盛的機會。對於一些人來說,這可能只是要多作運動,或閱讀書籍來投入生活,或在我們事奉上有新嘗試。

希望這些事對你有幫助。 封城終會結束,事工也會有終結,但神的愛永遠長存(羅馬書8:38-39), 只要繼續前進。

。。。
