Finding Mr/Ms Right

Posted in Uncategorized on April 23, 2009 by iggz


Ah relationships…the age old “issue” of young and old alike.   Christians of course are no exception. YF’ers especially are going through a time in their life where dare i say it, hormones are raging and BGR is at the forefront of every uni students minds (admit it…you don’t really care about study. the only reason you haul yourself to class at 8am every morning is because of the hottie in your lecture).  If you’re a young worker, it’s a time of life where those around you are beginning to get married and settle down.  If you’re not in a relationship now, are you going to be left on the shelf forever?   Everyone longs to find “the one” to spend their life with happily ever after in married bliss.  But how do you find Mr or Ms Right?

This week, if you buy a Threadless tee they will plant you a tree.  OR… you can buy an Abort73 tee and help save babies.

We’ll be doing a YF group order.


PS. from memory, think the girls pink t-shirts have a tighter, U-neck cut compared to the other girls tees.



Richard’s wearing a Unisex Small tshirt… Mike is wearing Medium


Gracie’s tee is girls medium… friz’s is girls small… i think… 🙂

K-Rudd has a message

In light of Jamesy’s most recent post, our Prime Minister has responded with a message.

K-Rudd stimulus

Stimulus Package

Posted in Uncategorized on April 17, 2009 by jamesy7

Amidst our current economic crisis and recession now a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’, it’s been little surprise that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s $900 proposed stimulus package has been the talk of the town for many weeks now.

My rough understanding of the proposal is basically that anybody who paid any tax last financial year along with those who get family benefits from Centrelink will be $900 ‘richer’ in the coming weeks. Put in even simpler terms – most Australians will be getting $900 to spend on anything they want without actually having to earn it.

Many people, including myself have been thinking about what to do with this sum of money that we would otherwise not have. Some, like a shop assistant I was talking to the other day have already spent the money on laptops and other gadgets in anticipation of its arrival to their bank accounts. Others are planning overseas/interstate holidays with the stimulus package as the budget for the trip.

That’s all good and well, but as Christians how should we be ‘spending’ our stimulus package? As Christians we should know and understand that any money that we own is ultimately God’s money as He was the one who enabled and provided jobs for us to work. We’ve been called to be good stewards of all that He’s blessed us with – Grace, Love, Truth, Money.

There are so many needs and places to be generous both in and outside the church, just looking at our building alone reveals a growing deficit in our offering figures, and our growing congregation warrants a need for an associate pastor to help share the ministerial load with our current pastor.

With all this in mind, how generous are we being with His money? How will you be using your ‘K-Rudd stimulus package’?

Culture vs Cross Culture Seminar

Posted in Uncategorized on April 16, 2009 by BillyL

Saturday, May 30, 2009
9:30am – 3:15pm
Creek Road Presbyterian Church
Cnr Creek and Fursden rd
Brisbane, Australia

Just as some first generation Christians misunderstood the true grace of God, so too a similar problem exists today. Peter wrote two letters: the first, a brief letter of encouragement to stand firm in the true grace of God; the second, written on his death-bed, his last words to the Church

Come hear Dr Bruce Winter, principal of QTC take us through the books of 1 and 2 Peter in a day seminar that will promise some great teaching.

morning tea provided but BYO lunch

Free Seminar, but please register by sending us an email at

REALLY HOPE YOU GUYS AND GIRLS CAN MAKE THIS! What better opportunity do we have to learn and listen to seminars by bible college principals! Prayerfully consider it and free up your schedule to attend this worthwhile day of teaching. Don’t hesitate – act now!

I can hear you already saying ‘uhh….’

Serving in a Chinese Church

A lot of the readers of this blog attend a Chinese Church here and although we love the church, i’m sure you’ll all agree there’s certain challenges that must be faced.  These become more apparant as you step into the realm of serving in the church (which we should be doing mind you).  Instead of complaining and becoming discouraged, we should learn how to deal with it in a way which not only edifies others but glorifies God.

Our good friend Pastor Ying Yee heads up one of the biggest and most established Chinese Churches in Sydney.  He shares his thoughts on this issue here.
