~Scripture Sentence~

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works

and give glory to your Father in heaven.

(Matthew 5.16)





Faithful God,

you have appointed us your witnesses,

to be a light that shines in the world:

let us not hide the bright hope you have given us,

but tell everyone your love,

revealed in Jesus Christ the Lord,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

kyck14_homepagebannerTHE NARROW ROAD



KYCK 14 is all about staying on the right track. We’re going to be looking at the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ – one of the all-time great moments in public speaking! Life is a series of crossroads and we make choices about which road to take every day. One road is massive – heaps of people walk on this road; it’s easy but it’s godless. The other road is narrow – it’s tough, there are only a few people on this road; it has its ups and downs, but it always takes you toward Jesus.

KYCK #1 – 11-13 April

KYCK #2 – 25-27 April

KYCK #3 – 2-4 May

Book online at www.kyck.kcc.org.au

KYCK is held at the Katoomba Christian Convention Site at the corner of Cliff Drive and Violet Street in Katoomba.


Blue A4 Prayer Book available from sidespersons at rear of church.
