Alive@9 is a new church that starts on 10 February 2019. We’ll gather in the Ministry Centre on Macquarie Road, Springwood at 9am. We’ll be expressing a commitment to community, creativity, conversation and, above all, Christ. And our hope is that the morning light will remind us that God’s mercies are new yet again. We’ll lift our hearts like the Psalmist and pray, ‘Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.’ (Ps 90:14)
We’re hoping to be a community that’s open: aware of the open heart of the Father, the open arms of Jesus and with hearts open to the work of the Spirit. With the word open before us, we want to be open to each other and to a world of beauty, fragility and need.
We want to be open to people of all ages and different ways of learning. Some weeks our meetings will be a mosaic of short, thoughtful segments with scope to interact and move around. Other weeks, we will provide a place for young ones to play while others engage with a more classic teaching style.
