Soul Winning Mega Marathon 31st March 2018

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

On the 31st of March 2018 there will be a global effort to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ across all nations. Be part of the soul winning marathon in Nambour on the Sunshine Coast of QLD. This will be a family friendly event meeting at a hall with all facilities available (toilets, kitchen, air conditioning).


For those who are unable to do the soul winning, there will be a short video series on the basics of sharing the gospel. These videos will be aimed at beginners to help prepare them for future opportunities.

Tim Foley’s Baptism

Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 

Visiting from the Central Coast in NSW, Tim Foley obeyed the Lord in water baptism after giving his testimony of salvation to the church. To God be the glory!

Our First Baptisms

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Our first baptisms took place on Sunday the 12th of November straight after the formal church service. Four individuals who professed their faith on Jesus for salvation took this step of obedience. We thank God for the time of rejoicing and seek that those baptised will continue walking in newness of life.

Soul Winning Marathon 2017

John 4:37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

As part of the church launch, we held the second soul winning marathon on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday the 30th September 2017.

The event was co-hosted by The Church in Caloundra and The Church in Punchbowl which had 19 of their members make the interstate trek from Sydney. We also had others attend from outside the Sunshine Coast region.

We prioritised preaching the gospel in the suburb of Aroona but also had some teams continue working on last years maps in Little Mountain. An effort was made to pair up most teams with one from QLD and the other from NSW to create new friendships.

Following the morning and afternoon soul winning, we gathered together for a time of worship with three salvation testimonies given from Anthony Griffen, Nathan Martincich, and Victor Tey.

The Church Launch – Be There!

We are less than two weeks away from launching of The Church in Caloundra. To celebrate the event, you are invited to join us on the weekend of Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October for the following planned events.

II Soul Winning Marathon – Sunshine Coast

The second soul-winning marathon on the Sunshine Coast will be held the day before the first official church meeting. If you came to the first soul winning marathon, the meeting location is directly across the street (Arthur St) from where we met last year.

The whole family is invited. As we did last year, children and one of their parents are welcome to remain at the meeting hall for fellowship while those who are soul-winning will be out knocking doors and preaching the gospel. The meeting location has a large sporting grass field so the children are free to run around and kick balls.
