Going to church in Sydney

Churches in Sydney can get a bit of a tough rap. esp Anglican churches in Sydney.
For those not in the church scene, or not from Australia you may be interested to know that the Anglican Diocese of Sydney is one of the most theologically conservative dioceses in the world. There’s a bit of a joke that the Anglican Church in Sydney worships “Father, Son and Holy Scripture” rather than “Father, Son and Holy Spirit”. Certainly there is a distinct tone in Sydney Anglican Churches.
Anyway, I digress….
This morning we went to church with some friends and it was fantastic! Aside from the fact that it was the first time all year that the HH and I have sat together in church for the whole service uninterrupted (wohooo!) – the sermon, worship and prayer were all really encouraging. The HH was personally prayed for 4 times during the service! The church was Northbridge Community Church in Thornleigh. Worth a visit!
If you are in Sydney and looking for a church, or just somewhere to visit some other churches we have personally visited and found encouraging are:
St Philip’s Anglican Church North Turramurra We visited this church on Christmas morning and it was a very family friendly, fun and faithful service.
We were reminded of the following verse this morning and I’d like to encourage you with it too…
