DATE: Monday 31st May
TIME: 7.45pm
LOCATION: Church by the Bridge Kirribilli

Did you know that almost 2 million Australian adults have experienced at least 1 sexual assault since the age of 15; half of female victims did not seek advice or support after their most recent incident of sexual assault; 1 in 3 hospitalised sexual assault cases identified a spouse or domestic partner as the perpetrator or that rates of assault are 7 times higher for women than men (source aihw.gov.au)?

Let’s Talk About That. 

We’d love you to come along to our next Mental Health seminar on Sexual Abuse & Assault. This can be a divisive issue and is such a hot topic particularly in the media right now. As a church, we want to help raise awareness and provide a safe place to talk about it and care for those who have and are experiencing it.

It is likely that you or someone you love has been sexually abused or assaulted. Although many victims do not reach out, statistics show that 7 out of 10 who do, tell friends or family, rather than authorities. Those that are assaulted can feel lonely and isolated and if you love someone who has been assaulted, you too can feel helpless. This seminar aims to help educate you to know more about these specific issues, increase empathy and understanding around this topic and equip us all to better walk alongside someone going through the experience.

Please come along on Monday 31st May, 745pm at Church by the Bridge Kirribilli. It would be great if you could register your attendance using this sign up form. The link can also be shared if you would like to invite anyone along.

Refuel for Women

Refuel for Women

DATE: Saturday 22nd May
TIME: 2.00pm - 4.30pm
LOCATION: St Augustine's Neutral Bay

How many “hats” do you wear each day?  Some of us are busy and time poor, juggling various roles throughout the day and lots of commitments.  Others may have a less overwhelming calendar but are still wrestling with identity and “fit” in different life stages.

It’s time for Refuel - an event for the women of our church to meet with women of other ages and stages to be encouraged and hear God’s word.  Specifically, this year, we will look at the idea of identity and the reality that ours is in Christ, not in our status according to the world. 

At Refuel, some of the women of our church will share about a time that their identity was shaken and there will be a talk on the 'Proverbs 31 Woman' – what makes her truly a super woman?  This is an opportunity to learn more about how secure your identity is in Jesus, not tied to things like work, children, family or relationships.

This will be a wonderful way to spend time with your church family and aims to help you gain a clear and confident understanding of who you are in Christ.

We’ll be meeting on the afternoon of Saturday 22nd May, 2pm-4.30pm at Neutral Bay (with light afternoon refreshments). 

It would be so good to see you at Refuel, we can’t wait to see you there! To help us with numbers for catering please register here.
