Update to Regular Worship Services
Current at: Tuesday, 28/07/2020
At The Salvation Army Rockingham we gather as followers of Jesus in many different expressions.
We meet together as a large gathering on the first Sunday of every month. This large gathering is to worship God together and to celebrate what He is doing in our lives every day. We also meet at various times in smaller gatherings in many different locations; we call these smaller gatherings discipleship huddles, which is where 4-6 people grow together by reading scripture, seeking to understand where God is at work in our lives, praying for one another, and encouraging one another to live out our faith in mission.
Two other mid-sized gatherings are our Wednesday Chapel Service held every fortnight at 10am and our weekly Friday night Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered recovery program aimed at helping people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups.
A message of thanks and support
Earlier this year the Church leadership met to discuss the challenging times ahead of us. The recent announcement from the Australian Government, limiting the size of gatherings means that we can't meet like we usually do each Sunday.
Even though this is disappointing, it is important that we look after each other and are mindful of those that are vulnerable in our community.
The Church is way more than Sunday gathering.
We have been in prayer for the last few days, and what is evident from our discussions is that every challenge creates new opportunities for God's mission. We envisage that our Church will continue to meet in small groups, just as the early Church did. We're encouraging everyone to stay connected over the weekend in lieu of our usual Sunday Worship, to pray and share in God's Word.
We believe, even in trying times, that God is always at work. We must remember this truth and always keep our eyes open to what He is doing. We know that in every situation God works for the good of those who love Him. So let's take this opportunity to connect in a different way.
We must continue to be considerate of the Government's advice. If you are feeling unwell, please continue to use our services either online (www.salvationarmy.org.au/rockingham) or via the phone on (08) 9527 3460.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
We will continue to keep you updated on the status of our programs and services online. For the most up to date information, see our Facebook page.
May God bless you,
Corps Officers Darrell and Chelsea Wilson
People who rely on extra support to recieve essential food and resources may find the next few months particularly challenging.
The Salvation Army has a business continuity plan in place to reduce the impact of this pandemic on our charitable services. It is vital that our work with the most vulnerable in the community is not negatively impacted and we are aware that people already experiencing hardship may be significantly affected by the immediate threat as well as the longer-term repercussions of this emergency.
The Salvation Army will continue to care for the most vulnerable in our community and meet human needs. While the means of delivering our services might be changing, our mission hasn’t.
