Free parenting seminar with Michelle Cuthbertson. Help your child overcome setbacks and thrive with a healthy, resilient mindset.
Come and join us for the NBC Seniors event in July!
The Plan is:
Morning Tea at NBC from 10.30am -11.45am, accompanied by an address from Emily Carpenter on her pastoral care role at Northern Beaches Hospital; then head down to Limanis.
Lunch booking at Limani's from 12, 12.15pm. Two course meal plus complimentary drink @ $32.50.
Can you please consider and let Graham Lawrence know of your attendance by email by 1st July.
We are taking a crew of NBC's next generation away to equip them to take the good news of Jesus to the world.
We think there's nothing more valuable than equpping the next generation to love and follow Jesus, so we can't wait for this weekend.
It's going to be an excellent time to get away from the hustle and bustle, hear from God, worship him together, get trained, and have some quality times with your Christian family.
We have a new venue this year as Yarandoo in Fiddletown has been sold :-(.
But fortunately we have booked a new venue that is really exciting. The YHA Pittwater in Morning Bay. We have the venue all to ourselves for the weekend and it will be a wonder place to run Next Gen. Check out this video for a look at the site.
However with a change of venue we are asking that people contribute $50 each to the cost of the weekend. This will include accomodation and food. Once you are there, there should be no extra expenses.
Once you have signed up for Weekend below, Daniel will send you the details for how to make the payment.
Who is welcome?
Anyone who is keen to grow in their ministry skills. Those over 18 will need a WWC number too.
We are encouraging youth and young adults to be there, and it is compulsory attendance for youth and young adults who are serving at Youth and Kids Arvo.
Why skip weekend sport and other commitments for this?
Basically we think that this weekend away has proven to be so valuable in the lives and development of our young leaders. So much so that we think ti is worth giving up a weekend of sport and other commitments.
Our two-week journey begins in Jordan exploring the lost city of Petra, viewing the promised land from Mt Nebo and encountering Amman. We will then travel across the Jordan River into Israel and to such places as Jericho, Masada, the Dead Sea, the city of Jerusalem, The Sea of Galilee and to so many more places that we encounter in God’s Word. We, along with local expert guides, will help deepen your understanding of the life & ministry of Jesus as we travel in the footsteps of God’s people of both the Old and New Testaments. Share in a wonderful experience which will leave you with insights & memories for a lifetime.

May Seniors Event - Lunch at Patonga Beach, Boathouse Restaurant Hotel, via Ferry Trip from Palm Beach 11.00am and return from Patonga 3.00pm on Thursday, May 9th.
The very successful Boat House Group recently opened a new Restaurant at the lovely Patonga Beach. It already has similar restaurants at Palm Beach, Manly and other waterside places.
It is a half hour Ferry trip to and from Palm Beach. The sole Ferry leaves at 11.00am from Palm Beach and returns at 3.00 pm from Patonga. So apart from getting to and from Palm Beach it is a 4 hour 30 minute outing. That makes it a very leisurely day out.
Depending on your appetite, meals range from about $18 -$35. The return Ferry ticket cost for Seniors and Concessions is $15, cash only.
If you are interested, speak to Graham Lawrence.

During Mission Month NBC Youth is hosting Friday Night Youth events that are designed to attract kids for the first time to Youth Group! Our hope is that kids will come along and find meaningful community and a chance to think about God and Jesus more deeply. And we hope they will settle into our community for the long hall!
An event we are hosting which achieves all these goals is the Junior sleepover. Giving kids a chance to grow closer to each other, spending more time together than the regular 2 hours on a Friday night. I know that for some kids (and parents) the idea of a sleepover can be a bit daunting, but I encourage you to come because it will be really valuable to feel at home in the youth community. If you’ve got concerns or questions, keep reading. If you still have concerns after reading this, feel free to contact Daniel (firstname.lastname@example.org or 0448 326 699).

If your child is unable to stay over the night for any reason, you can come and pick them up from church at 9:30pm.
All the Youth leaders have working with children numbers, which means they are permitted by the government to work with people below 18yo. They have also participated in Safe Ministry Training called “Creating Safe Spaces” (https://creatingsafespaces.org.au), which has trained them in best practices with people under 18yo.
The kids will be monitored during the night to ensure that they do not stay up all night, or attempt to sneak out. Bed time will be enforced.
Boys and Girls will be sleeping in separate spaces during the night, and multiple youth leaders of each gender will be staying in the same spaces as their respective gender.
If you have any further concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Daniel (email: email@example.com or mobile: 0448 326 699).
Thank you for partnering with us!
NBC Youth thinks it’s a privilege to partner with parents to make disciples of their kids with them. We only see their kids for a couple hours a week, while they live at home with their parents, making the parents the primary people who raise their kids in the love and knowledge of God.

Come to camp to hear about this Joy from the Bible!
As well as the Bible talks, there will be no shortage of good times with friends, water sports, beautiful beaches, great worship, encouraging stories, camping, and great food!

NBC is hosting a night to think about the issue of Science vs God.
Has science disproved God? How does a working scientist make sense of the supposed conflict between science and faith?
Join us to hear from Western Sydney University Astrophysicist Dr Luke Barnes and then we’ll open the floor up for a question and answer time.
He will discuss an astronomers view of the natural world, our attempts to understand it, and whether there is anything more than the universe we see.
This will be a different presentation to last year and for those that heard him previously will know it's well worth your time.
Please come with all questions you've ever wrestled through about Christian faith relating to science. It promises to be a great evening for all inquiring minds.
Feel free to invite friends, all are welcome.
For a teaser, here is last years presentation https://vimeo.com/219327431/sciencevsgod
Who is our presenter?
Luke Barnes is a John Templeton Fellow at Western Sydney University. With a PhD in astronomy from the University of Cambridge, he has published papers in the field of galaxy formation and on the fine-tuning of the Universe for life. He is the coauthor with Prof. Geraint Lewis of "A Fortunate Universe: Life in a Finely-Tuned Cosmos", published by Cambridge University Press.
NBC is passionate about equipping parents to do the hard work of parenting. Whether you are a parent, or hope to be in the near future, this event our upcoming parenting seminar is worth your while.

The evening will also include a supper and time to chat with others as well as a Q and A panel.
We understand that there may be a few of you who don’t have family nearby to help with baby-sitting. We don’t want you to miss out, so please contact Kieran (0422 734 830 or firstname.lastname@example.org).

“‘All we want is for our children to be happy’ is the absolute unchallenged axiom of our time. But what if, ironically, by chasing this elusive goal we are making not just our children, but ourselves less happy? This book gives parents a wise framework for understanding our children, ourselves, and our world. In doing so, not only will the parent be happier, but so also will the child.”
—SAM CHAN on Harriet Connor's book
What does it mean to live as a Christian in the sexualised world of today? Can we bring God’s view of gender, relationships and marriage to a world which screams out the message that every desire must be met – whatever the consequences? Patricia looks at what the Bible teaches us about sexuality and relationships, and applies it to life.
Dr. Patricia Weerakoon is a Sexologist and Writer. She trained in medicine in the University of Sri Lanka. She is married to Vasantha and her son Kamal is a Presbyterian minister. Patricia retired in 2011 after a twenty three year career as an academic with the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Sydney. The last eight years of which she was the director of an internationally acclaimed graduate program in Sexual Health.
