WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
Each year members of the local Christian communities gather in solidarity with Christians around the world for a prayer service on World Day of Prayer. This year we will be gathering at Graceville Uniting Church at 10.30 am on 3rd March. All parishioners are invited to participate. The service this year has been prepared for us by people from the Philippines, and will give us an insight into the lives of the people of that country. The Graceville Uniting Church has invited us to join them afterwards some lovely socialising over morning tea. You are welcome to bring a plate, but this is not necessary.
MARCH 11 IS ALPHA DAY
Evangelisation Brisbane has organised a training day on "Alpha" to be held here at St Joseph's Hall Corinda, 9am to 3pm on Saturday 11th March. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes! No two Alphas look the same. The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us? Please mark this Alpha Training day in your diary.
