Weekly SNAC, 19 August 2018 - International Dinner

In June, we hosted our first international dinner at St James Carlton. The idea was to invite people from our local community to share a meal, hear a short talk from the Bible and meet Christians from our church. It was really encouraging to have a good number of guests who were welcomed well by the members of our church. It was also a great opportunity to connect with students from English for Life (our SNAC English classes that run on Friday mornings at St James).In June, we hosted our first international dinner at St James Carlton.

Dinner was pot-luck style, so everyone brought a plate of food to share. During the meal, Mateusz shared his testimony and how his experience of church at SNAC compared to church in Poland. After this, Kevin told the story of the lost son from Luke 15 and Netane provided illustrations on the whiteboard. During the second telling of the story, the audience were encouraged to participate by providing details from the story - it was encouraging to see how much both adults and kids remembered! Everyone was then encouraged to discuss this Bible story as they continued to eat their meal. It was great to hear of lots of good gospel conversations that happened throughout the evening. Very encouragingly, one of the guests from the dinner started coming on Thursday mornings for an easy English Bible study.

Given the success of the first dinner, we are planning a second dinner on Saturday 8th September at St James. Please be praying that many people from our local community would come along and be interested in finding out more about Jesus. If you are interested in bringing a guest to the next dinner, please contact Kevin for more information. We may need to limit the number of people coming from SNAC given the limited space available at St James. 

We are also looking for volunteers to help serve in the kitchen for our next dinner. If you are interested in serving in this way, please contact Kevin – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 0421 286 835.
