'For the love of God' lounge room screening

‘FOR THE LOVE OF GOD’ screening

“How the church is better and worse than you ever imagined”

With our regular Community Groups enjoying a summer break, you’re invited to Dave + Mera’s for a lounge room screening of last year’s documentary ‘For the love of God’.

Wed 9 Jan - at Dave + Mera’s (use the contact form if you don’t know our address)
Arrive from 7.30pm. We’ll do a pizza order at 7.40pm (bring $10) + eat during ‘interval’ !!

RSVP on our St Luke’s members
forum, or if you’re not on that please RSVP via the contact form.

Here’s the blurb:

HOW THE CHURCH IS BETTER + WORSE THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED

Christian history is full of violence, corruption, and oppression.

So does religion poison everything?

For the Love of God is a documentary that confronts the worst that Christians have done, and traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.

This is not the history we think we know.

Join John Dickson, Justine Toh, and Simon Smart on location around the globe and in conversation with leading scholars as they weigh up the good, the bad, the ugly - and the unexpected - when it comes to the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.

Growing Families - Date Night

GrowingFamilies_DateNight_2018_Web.jpg

We believe in strong marriages at St. Luke's (so does God!). 

However, sometimes in the hectic schedule of life we forget that we need to invest time in our relationships.

That's where Growing Families Date Night comes in.

  • Step 1. Get it into your diary and start to plan what you and your spouse could do together.
  • Step 2. Register your kids below (Rego closes by the end of Wed 20th June)
  • Step 3. Drop your kids off anytime between 5:30pm-8:30pm on Sat June 23rd. We'll feed them for $5/child (max $15 per family) and look after them until you return.
  • Step 4. Go on your date. We’ve made the time, now you just have to choose where you will go. Might be good to book a table or plan something delightful at home. Enjoy!

NOTE: To properly care for all the kids who attend, only children above the age of 1 can be registered. We strongly suggest that children below the age of 3 be picked up before 7:30pm. For members of St. Luke's Anglican Clovelly only.

"What about people who've never heard about Jesus?"

We'll eat a simple meal together and then kids will be looked after by some of our trained leaders in the hall.
