    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。

    OUR  LATEST PASTORAL LETTER
    牧聲

    Pastoral Letter 9th May 2021

    Today is Mother’s Day, first wishing all mothers a happy day and may you all experience spiritual renewal!

    In the first two pastoral letters of this series, I attempted to explain that emotion is inseparable from spiritual life, and that emotion is not necessarily an obstacle to spiritual growth. In this pastoral letter, I will provide some practical suggestions on how to develop an emotionally healthy spirituality.

    (1) Take time to understand and perceive your different emotions. The goal is to be able to recognize and express our emotions appropriately. This is not easy to learn. I encourage everyone to regularly (such as spending 1-2 days every six months) practise silence and solitude, in order to relax, slow down the busy pace. And then write down the thoughts and feelings, and then bring these before the Lord who loves us (Luke 5:15-16). If it is too difficult to be quiet by yourself, you can participate in some silent retreats. First, these retreats provide opportunities for quiet reflection. Second, there will be workshops led by an instructor to guide us into further reflection, with time provided to discuss with the instructor to receive spiritual direction.

    (2) Look for spiritual companions who are mature and willing to listen to your heart (preferably those who have received spiritual direction training). They must be non-critical and be willing to listen to your stories with the heart of Christ and be seeking the Lord’s will together with you (2 Tim 2:22). Meeting once or twice will not necessarily be effective, instead it should be a continuous process; the aim is to help you understand that any emotion requires proper expression or counsel, and that emotions should not be repressed or randomly vented.  And in the process, you could feel God at work through another’s love and acceptance of you, as you are reminded by the promptings of the Holy Spirit, how to properly express and manage your own emotions.

    (3) Treat the rising of each emotion as an invitation from God. When we notice that we have emotions, accept its existence, and learn to meditate on God’s Word, the hope of eternity and our noble identity in Christ. This enables us to turn our eyes from the helplessness of sinners and the brevity of our time in this world to the kingdom and presence of God, to attain intimacy with the heart of Jesus, to learn to share our joy and sorrow with Him, and let the peace of Christ rule our hearts (Col 3:15). Hence, we are empowered to love God and love others.

    I hope we can slowly practise listening to ourselves to understand that behind the underlying negative emotions is a positive invitation to let God renew our minds so that we can live the lives of being Jesus’ disciples thereby honoring God and benefitting others. Are you willing to embark on the journey to cultivate an emotionally healthy spirituality?

    今天是母親節,先祝各位母親有快樂的一天,並經歷靈命的更新!

    在前兩篇文章,我嘗試提出情感與靈命有不可分割的關係,以及情感不一定是靈命成長的阻礙。在這最後一篇,我會介紹一些實際學習的方向,讓大家能建立高情商的靈命。

    (一) 花時間了解、覺察自己不同的情感,目標是能夠適切地承認及表達自己的情緒。這個學習可不是容易的,鼓勵大家定期 (如:每半年花1-2日) 透過安靜和獨處的操練,放鬆、放慢忙碌的步伐,把自己的思想、感受記下,然後把這些帶到愛我們的主面前 (路5:15-16)。若認爲獨個兒地安靜有點困難,可以參加一些群體靜修營,一來有安靜反省的機會,二來有由導師主領的工作坊提供一些反省的方向,並有與導師約談的時間,得到屬靈的指導。

    (二) 尋找成熟和願意聆聽你心聲的屬靈友伴(曾接受屬靈指導訓練者尤佳),他們必須是不帶批判的態度,願意以基督的心懷來聆聽你的故事,並與你一起尋求主的啟迪(提後2:22)。這不是一、兩次的分享便奏效,而是一個持續的進程;助你了解任何情感都需要適當的表達或疏導,不是壓抑或隨便發洩,而是在過程中,讓你感受神透過他人對自己的愛與接納,感悟聖靈的提醒,學習妥善地表達和管理自己的情緒。

    (三) 把每次情緒的出現看待成一個從神而來的邀請,在省察到自己有情緒的時候,一方面接納它的存在,另一方面,學習默想上主的恩言、永恆的盼望或自己尊貴的身份。這可使我們的目光,從罪人的無助、今世的短暫,轉向神的國度和同在,貼近耶穌的心懷,學習與祂同喜、同悲,讓基督的平安掌管我們的內心 (西3:15),從而有能力愛神愛人。

    盼望我們能慢慢熟練地聆聽自己,了解負面情緒背後的正面邀請,讓神更新我們,好叫我們活出使人作主門徒的生命,榮神益人。你願意踏上這個培育高情商的靈命之旅嗎?
