Pastor’s Word: July 2018

Sonlife Communications Pastor's Word

Dear Sonlife Church,

Not too long now before we move into our new church building in the heart of Leederville! For those who have not been to the site on 338 Oxford Street, it’s just behind Aranmore Catholic College. Do find time to drop by and see how you can help us with the big move. Hop onto the What’s On page and sign up to one of our Busy Bees!

Someone just recently asked me if I was excited that Sonlife Church is about to have its very own building. My honest reply was, “I’m not really excited about the building per se”. The person was shocked by my reply and asked why buy a building in the first place?

I honestly believe the building on Oxford Street is a gracious gift from God, so that we would live out his mission for Sonlife Church! The mission will always be about bringing glory to God by making disciples through the Gospel. What excites me is that the building would speed up the process of bringing glory to God! How? Think of the exposure we would have as a church community. We are on a very busy road, Oxford Street, with plenty of traffic each day. We are right next to a secondary school, with hundreds of parents dropping off their children each day! We have a TAFE just a couple hundred metres down the road, with thousands of students. A primary school and two age care facilities are on the other side of Oxford St. We also have not one by two cafe strips! That’s right, the Leederville cafe strip and the Mt Hawthorn cafe strip, both just 500m from our building. Now, this excites me!

We have an opportunity to be a lighthouse in this part of the city. I cannot wait to see our church be a church for the unchurched! I cannot wait to see people meeting Jesus through the ministry of Sonlife Church. We will never worship the building, but we will use the building to worship the God who gave us this great building!

Let’s all get excited for what is around the corner.

Much love,
Pastor Binh
