“We love because he first loved us.”
The Christian life is lived as a thankful, loving response to the God who has demonstrated his love for us in Jesus. As we give over the run of our lives to King Jesus, God’s love fills our heart and begins to change us. We begin to love what he loves. And a desire builds inside us to see others know the love of God too.
That’s why Jesus gave the church a mission: to create communities of disciples where people are strengthened by his teaching, and then go out into the world to proclaim the good news of God’s love revealed in Jesus.
In our particular context, it’s harder to get that message out clearly. We need prayer, resources, and help of every kind. That’s where you can play a part. But how?
1. JOIN US
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25
The best way to support the gospel work of our church is to join us! It starts with our Sunday gathering, 9:30am every Sunday. Our prayer is that you’ll find us to be an authentic community of everyday people who learning to follow Jesus together. As we follow Jesus our desire is to work together to strengthen the church, and to see the good news about Jesus go out.
2. PRAY FOR US
"Brothers and sisters, pray for us." 1 Thessalonians 5:25
Prayer is mysterious and powerful. We would appreciate your prayers that our church would honour God, remain faithful to the Bible, and grow in our ability to love and reach people. Please also pray that God would prepare the hearts of those around us in everyday life, that they might be receptive to the gospel.
3. GIVE CHEERFULLY
"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
2 Corinthians 9:7
In this world, bodies need food, people need love, and organisations need financial resources. Brisbane is an expensive place to conduct an effective gospel ministry. Any financial support you could give would serve to strengthen and extend our current work.
Aside from the collection plate on a Sunday, it is easy to give electronically, using the following details.

4. REMEMBER US
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:20-21
Another important way to support us is to remember us in your Will. Your Will is your final way of saying to the world what you thought was important to you. Why not leave a legacy by setting aside something for WHPC? If you value our Christian witness in the world, please consider leaving a portion of your estate “for the charitable purposes of Wavell Heights Presbyterian Church.”
If you are a follower of Jesus we prayerfully hope that you might consider supporting the gospel work of our church family. May you know God's love in greater measure - and whatever you do with you time and resources, may it all be to His eternal glory in Christ.
