February marks the 100th anniversary of Stanwell Park Anglican Church.
Standing in Stanwell Ave Stanwell Park the church will celebrate its centenary with a thanksgiving service on Sunday February 16th at 2pm. Senior Minister of Helensburgh and Stanwell Park Anglican Church Rev Steve Carlisle said everyone in the community was welcome to attend the service where the congregation would give thanks for the work of Jesus through the church and its members over many years.
“We are greatly blessed to have a space in this community where we have experienced God’s goodness for nearly 100 years.” Rev Carlisle said. “We meet together weekly at 8:15am at Stanwell Park in the new chapel building behind the historic church, but the now church hall stands as a reminder of all who have passionately followed Jesus for many years and who stand as pillars of the Christian community in Stanwell Park.
“The current congregation at Stanwell Park and its sister congregations in Helensburgh which meet on Sundays at 10am and 6pm are an expression of a true village church where there is a real connection and community between all ages and stages of life, with people from vastly different backgrounds enjoying membership of the church together.”
“The church building at Stanwell Park remains a hub for local Christian events such as youth group, ONE, and Christian Surfers which engages the surfing community with the message of Jesus love for the world.”
“As a church in a tight local community there are many in Stanwell Park who have grown up going to church or Sunday School here and no matter whether the connection has been over a decade or over the whole period of 100 years, we would love to invite all to come and celebrate with us on February 16th.”
“Of course anyone wishing to attend one of our regular services and becoming a part of Stanwell Park Anglican Church need only to come along any given Sunday morning at 8:15am or at its sister congregations at Helensburgh at 10am or 6pm each and every Sunday.” Rev Carlisle concluded.
The centenary service will take place at Stanwell Park Anglican Church, 54 Stanwell Ave Stanwell Park on 16th February 2014 at 2pm. All are warmly welcome to attend.
