Serving: Mission

LOCAL MISSION

St James Turramurra and it's branch churches (BHAC and WAC) seek to share the message of God’s forgiveness through Jesus in Turramurra, North Turramurra, Warrawee and beyond. 

Since 2008 BHAC (Bobbin Head Anglican Church) has continued to grow a relationship with St Barnabas church and the Community in Minyerri 270 km SE of Katherine in the NT. Over the years a close bond has been formed and developed so that the teams are welcome on Alawa land. The cross cultural experience has been positive for each group.

WAC has adopted link missionaries including Rev Dr Mark Short and Monica short. Mark is the National Director of Bush Church Aid, and they both worship at Warrawee.

Since 2013, St James has sent a team to Walgett, in Northern NSW to assist the church there which ministers to 4 localaties, including Collarenebri. Typically we are invited to work and help with outreach events. Read more at StJames.info/Walgett.

 

TRAINING IN SHARING YOUR FAITH

We want every Christian to be prepared ... to give a reason for the hope that they have. (1 Pet 3:15). We offer regular training courses in evangelism to equip and encourage pepole to share their faith. We also offer periodic seminars to help answer tough questions about the Christian faith. These resources are also available from the website.

 

PRAY - CONNECT - SHARE

We want every member of the congregation to be active in promoting the gospel to their friends and neighbours. We do this by praying for them, looking for opportunities to connect and build relationships, and showing them and sharing with them what it means for us to trust in Jesus.

 

HEARING THE GOSPEL ON SUNDAYS

Through our regular preaching on the Bible, there are opportunities for people to hear and respond to the message of God’s forgiveness through Christ. We aim to have at least one service per term where the message of the gospel is particularly clear and compelling, with an opportunity for people to make a response to the claims and promises of Jesus.

 

OUTREACH EVENTS AT CHURCH

We have regular outreach events during the year to which members of the congregation can invite their friends and neighbours.

 

LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS

St James actively support SRE in two local High Schools, through the Turramurra Christian Education Association (Turramurra High School) and Ku-ring-gai Christian Education Association (Ku-ring-gai Creative Arts High School).

 

GLOBAL MISSION

We seek to grow the kingdom of God in other places by partnerships with our Link Missionaries.
