We know that it can take a lot of energy to attend a new church, so please note that:   The toilets are located down the passage to the right as you exit the sanctuary. The Preschool ministry begins at the start of the service in the Creche, and 5-13 year olds are dismissed part way through the service for Sunday School. Information on who we are, as well as on all of our ministries are available online at www.whac.net.nz Each week, we share a cuppa together after the service, and would love for you to stay for a chat.

I was reading through some prayer requests on a website. I was overwhelmed by so many people with so many hurts, some big and some small. There were hundreds on this one page alone. They were all crying out and appealing to Jesus for help and forgiveness. And the thing I found most interesting is how many people were compelled to pray on behalf of another person. Aren’t we blessed to have the love of Jesus in our lives and the knowledge that He alone can do all things. From the deepest despair and heartache He will lift us up and bring us peace.

MINISTRIES FOR CHILDREN at WHAC
Ages 0-3 Ages 3–7 Ages 8 – 13 If you need to take your infant out of the service, we have a crèche available. Our Kid’s Club is divided into two groups, for age appropriate lessons. These take place in the hall during the sermon. A notice will appear on the screen when it is time to dismiss your children.

We may think that our prayers have not been answered or we have been forgotten or unheard. Maybe on these occasions the answer that we were hoping to get, was not the right answer for that situation at that time. When we pray we need to trust that Jesus has the only right and true answer and that He has our best interests at heart. He will never let us down or leave us bereft. Praise the Lord, Amen. Matthew 6:33 and 34 – But seek first of all His kingdom and His righteousness, and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
