Lutherans believe that worship is not so much about what we do, but about what God does for us. We simply respond in prayer and praise to the God who comes down to our level.
Beginning early in 2018, we partnered with the NSW District of the Lutheran Church of Australia to undertake an outreach mission program to reach the rapidly expanding community surrounding our church. For the next two years we have employed Pastor Ian Rentsch on a part-time basis to jointly achieve the following outcomes:
- Establish a nourishing relationship with students and staff at the nearby University of Canberra.
- Develop and present a series of studies and faith exploration seminars at Holy Cross to assist members and newcomers with issues of faith.
- Establish outreach opportunities to minister to new residents in our immediate area of Belconnen. The community around us is growing rapidly with the recent and ongoing construction of high-rise apartment blocks within walking distance.
