Open House

We are a community with a cause: to love Jesus, to love Each Other and to love Norfolk Island. The Open House ministry is designed to help us become wholehearted, fully engaged followers of Jesus Christ.

We hope these series of public lectures will be suitable for longtime church goers, brand-new Christians, wounded-by-other-traditions Christians and people filled with spiritual questions.

There are three great reasons for studying church history: Instruction – the difficulties we face today are not new and we can look to the past to learn from where believers have acted wisely in these situations and where believers have acted foolishly. “Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you.” (Deuteronomy 32:7). Worship – when we see all God has done through His church it should lead us to praise Him for His faithfulness. “Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.” (Psalm 150:1-2). Confidence – Jesus is keeping His promise to build His church. “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (Matthew 16:18)

  2. I wonder what plans there are for services in St Barnabas and All Saints on Good Friday and Easter Sunday 2021? I know it’s early days for making plans but I’m hoping I might be able to participate
