From Sunday August 23, we’ll be hearing a three week sermon series on the subject of prayer. We’ll be looking at why the most important aspect of the Christian life is often the most neglected as well as more fundamental questions like what it is and what it does. Come and join us as we explore agony and ecstasy of speaking with our heavenly Father!
Once complete, all three sermons in this series will be available by clicking here.
The Trinity is simultaneously the most important yet least understood of all Christian doctrines. It is also the key idea that separates Christianity from other world faiths such as Judaism and Islam. What’s the big deal and what does it mean for daily life? These are some of the questions we’ll be considering in a new sermon series that will kick off towards the end of July at Warrawee Anglican.
All three sermons in this series will be available for download here.
Capital punishment was last carried out Australia in 1967 when Ronald Ryan was hanged by the State of Victoria, but the death penalty again captured the hearts and minds of Australians when Andrew Chan was put before the firing squad. Is it ever right to take the life of another person?

Each year the Warrawee Lecture attracts an audience of around 150 people from across Sydney and regional NSW. The 2015 Warrawee Lecture, When Life Gets Hot: following Jesus on a warming planet will be delivered by Mr Byron Smith. Byron has studied environmental ethics under Oliver O’Donovan at the University of Edinburgh and is passionate to connect faith and life. Byron maintains that the current challenges facing ecosystems pose new questions for Christian theology, discipleship, and mission. Admission is free, but registration is requested.
The 2015 Warrawee Lecture is available here for viewing or download. Please note that the content belongs to Byron Smith and he can be contacted here if you wish to use any of his materials in your own presentations. Apologies for the quality of this recording – all efforts have been made to keep the file size low and maintain the readability of the presentation.
We are pleased to announce The 2016 Warrawee Lecture will be given by Dr Brian Rosner, principal of Ridley College, Melbourne. What is a human being? Personal identity and the Bible. Brian writes “the world is obsessed with being true to yourself and knowing who you are; there’s never been a time when knowing who you are has been so difficult. If traditional societies are like rivers, buoying their members in one particular direction, modern societies are oceans – you can go in any direction you wish. But what is personal identity? Do my job, my possessions, my experiences, my memories, define who I am? What is a human being?”
Details about The 2016 Warrawee Lecture will be released closer to the event in early 2016. Remember to check our website in the new year.
Our 2015 Easter meetings will be held at 10am on Good Friday April 3rd, and 10am on Easter Sunday April 5th. Both meetings will be held in the hall at Warrawee Public School. All are welcome for these meetings, some of the most important in the Christian year, as we consider the gospel of Jesus Christ and his death and resurrection.
