    I am retired from paid work. I used to work as a pharmacist.

  4. How long have you been a Christian?

  5. What do you hope God will do through our church this year? 
    My hope is that God will continue building his church at Living Church across the 3 campuses. In "building" I mean that people will be built up in character and Christlikeness, and that new people will be built into our local body of Christ. My hope also includes the coming of a new senior pastor to commence work in 2021, if not before.

Prayer Meeting Leaders

I would like to introduce you to the people who have taken up leading our 8AM Sunday prayer meetings.

Roddy McNicol


Ursula Pryde

As we seek to go deep in knowing and experiencing God's presence, prayer is one of the best ways we can do that. To do that in community is incredibly rich. I personally have found great encouragement from being a part of the 8AM prayer meetings. Roddy & Ursula would like to encourage more people to come and join us in a time of praising and petitioning God in prayer. It would be great to see even more people join us and grow deeper in our relationship with God through prayer together, and celebrate together as we see God working in and through the people of our church.

And if you come to night church don't forget that we also have a 5PM prayer meeting as well. Everyone welcome.

We moved up to Brisbane from Sydney in Jan 2018 and are very happy and convinced that this move was in God's perfect will for us.
