Coffs Harbour – Saturday 30th May, 2015
9am – 3pm
Training materials, morning tea and LUNCH provided. Just bring a pen and
ID documents as discussed on registering.
Completing this course prepares you to volunteer, under the Anglicare
umbrella, should our assistance be required in a disaster recovery or
evacuation centre and re-accredits current volunteers for another 3 years.
Fires, earthquakes and particularly in our area, floods, can happen anytime.
Whilst we all hope mass evacuations will never be needed, it pays to be
prepared to be of REAL help in such times of crisis.
Help supplement Anglicare Disaster Recovery presence in your community.
Please note that registration as a volunteer under the NSW Emergency
Management Plan also requires a successful, cost free Police Check and
Working With Children Check (WWCC).

Acts 1: 15-17, 21-26
In those days Peter stood up among the believers* (together the
crowd numbered about one hundred and twenty people) and said,
‘Friends,* the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit
through David foretold concerning Judas, who became a guide for
those who arrested Jesus— 17for he was numbered among us and
was allotted his share in this ministry.’
So one of the men who have accompanied us throughout the time
that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22beginning from the
baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one
of these must become a witness with us to his resurrection.’ 23So
they proposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known
as Justus, and Matthias. 24Then they prayed and said, ‘Lord, you
know everyone’s heart. Show us which one of these two you have
chosen 25to take the place* in this ministry and apostleship from
which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.’ 26And they cast
lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the
eleven apostles
Psalm 1
APBA page 224
1 John 5. 9-13
If we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater; for
this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son. 10Those
who believe in the Son of God have the testimony in their hearts.
Those who do not believe in God* have made him a liar by not
believing in the testimony that God has given concerning his Son.
And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is
in his Son. 12Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have
the Son of God does not have life.
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of
God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John, Chapter 17,
beginning to read at verse 6:
Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ
‘I have made your name known to those whom you gave me from
the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they
have kept your word. 7Now they know that everything you have
given me is from you; 8for the words that you gave to me I have
given to them, and they have received them and know in truth that I
came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 9I am
asking on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world, but
on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours.
All mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I have been glorified
in them. 11And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the
world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your
name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are
one. 12While I was with them, I protected them in your name that*
you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost
except the one destined to be lost,* so that the scripture might be
fulfilled. 13But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in
the world so that they may have my joy made complete in
themselves.* 14I have given them your word, and the world has
hated them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do
not belong to the world. 15I am not asking you to take them out of
the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one.* 16They
do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.
Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18As you have sent
me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for
their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in
This is the Gospel of the Lord
Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ
