He’s a long time Christian, a meteorologist, a theologian, an author, and speaks and writes regularly on the urgency of climate action. He will preach at our Sunday worship services, and we’ll livestream his sermons too. Aligned with the title of his recently published book the title of Mick’s sermon is titled “All Things New: God’s Plan to Renew our World” and he’ll reflect on verses from The Book of Revelation, chapter 21 to connect the dots between our faith in God and climate action today.

“Connect” is the theme of the new short-term vision/action plan at St Michaels North Carlton between August and December

As the graphic above illustrates, when lockdowns are prevalent and isolation and disconnection is the conversation on everyone’s lips, we recommend following the many encouragements in Scripture to intentionally create and sustain community. During this period, watch out for pop-up events of different kind, both online and face-to-face (when permitted) from time to time. We also encourage our church members to use every means available in these times of restrictions to connect with each other to care and build a stronger sense of community and faith.
