What we do...
Point to the Lord

The results we
look for...
Loving fellowships
of committed
worshipping God
together, seeking
to reconcile
people to Christ,
to mature them in
Him, to involve
them in service to
one another and
the world.
Over the last two Sundays we’ve thought about World
God being the originator of World Mission and
Jesus Christ being the message of World
To-day we think about how we fit into God’s World Mission.
We all have muscles. God wants us to use our Mission
Muscles in telling others about Jesus.
In Acts 1:8 we read Jesus’ last words to His Disciples: You will
be my witnesses, in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria
and to the ends of the earth. His followers were to make Him
known and call people to repentance and to place their trust
in Him as their Saviour and Lord where they lived, in their
region, throughout the Middle East and to the ends of the
In our day, Jesus would have said to all of us at All Saints:
You will be my witnesses, in Nowra, the Shoalhaven, outback
Australia and to the ends of the earth.
How are we doing that? How are you doing that?
David Mulready
This week at a glance: 27th Oct to 2nd Nov 2014
The Collect Lord God, without you we are not able to please you;
mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our
hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Diocesan Prayer Almighty God, we call upon you for such an outpouring of
your Holy Spirit upon us, that we as your people may be assured of your love
through your word, seek to please the Saviour in all things, manifest the godly
life and be filled with prayerful and sacrificial compassion for the lost in the
world. In the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen
Thanks for our new Rector Lord God, we give thanks and praise for the
provision of Geoff and Ann Thompson as our new leaders for our Parish.
We thank you too for the hard work of the Nominators over the past year.

“A Taste of Christmas” at Terara in the grounds of
"Does God want us to go back to India?"
Sue Weissel’s home.
Today I'm sending in our visa application for the
next few years in India.
Can you please pray for us this week?
If God wants us to go back, and be part of what he is doing in India ... we ask
him to grant the visa. Then we will start to pack up, and leave in January. But
it is all in his hands.
Here are some of the needs which are on our heart, and are some of the
reasons we want to go back:
More than 100 language communities are still without any books of
the Bible in their mother tongue. We, in partnership with other
Indian organisations, are trying to meet this need within 10 years.
Minority language communities in India often live in poverty. We are
linked to networks of hundreds of churches, which want to bless their
communities in Jesus name. Translation work is part of that.
Exciting new ministries are emerging! You may know that women in
South Asia often suffer violence and abuse. So, you can imagine how
important it is for the churches to be God’s agents of love and healing
in these situations. There is increasing interest in ministries by village
women to village women, using stories of key women from the Bible,
to encourage and empower them, and to show them that they are
valued by God and by his people.
So ... we have so many things to do in India, we are ready to go and be a part
of what God is doing. But we need a visa, so please pray!
The Toulmins

of the world.
Thank you for your support in encouraging churches to look outside of their
ministries to the wider mission field.
CMS missionaries are thankful for, and depend on the support and
encouragement from people at home.
