We're the U.Q. campus congregation of St. Lucia Bible Church. We meet at 6pm on Sunday in the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy Building. All welcome.
We're an Independent Evangelical church that meets at the University of Queensland at 6pm each Sunday in the Social Sciences Building (#24). Room S304. We love welcoming new people, whether you're looking for a new church home or keen to check out Jesus.
Mission: To present Christ to everyone and everyone mature in him.

stluciabiblechurch.org In light of the global COVID-19 situation, we believe it is necessary to close our regular public gatherings this Sunday and for the foreseeable future.
By now you would be aware that the COVID-19 situation in Australia is changing rapidly and as I write, the size of voluntary gatherings indoors has been limited to sizes of less than 100.
In light of this and other developments today, We believe it is necessary to close our regular public gatherings this Sunday (22nd March) and for the foreseeable future.
We have also cancelled the Unichurch camp which was scheduled for this weekend and Easter Eggstravaganza scheduled for Saturday 11April.
We are currently making plans to facilitate some form of SLBC streamed message each Sunday to help us stay connected with each other and be encouraged from the scriptures. The intention is to have a live stream at 9.30am and another at 6pm from this Sunday, tailored in some way for those who normally gather at those times.
It may be that people join in on their own or with a few others in homes as local groups or existing growth groups. In the meantime, can I encourage you to read Acts 10 by yourself, with your family or with others in your household beforehand. It may be that people you know who would normally not join us at church, might join us from their lounge room. More details will be circulated about this late Friday or Saturday morning.
In God’s complete sovereignty, this is a unique situation, completely different, but reminiscent of Acts 8, when those who believed in the risen Lord Jesus Christ were scattered from Jerusalem and took the gospel with them wherever they went. Rather than seeing this as a disaster, can I encourage us all to see it as an opportunity to grow the gospel like never before wherever we are.
We have been in touch with Growth Group leaders with the desire that we not only care for each other well through those networks, but that God will use us in this season for growing the gospel amongst our neighbours, colleagues and families. We will be providing more ideas of how we might do this in the days ahead.
If you are not in a Growth Group network, we will attempt to connect you with one more broadly in the near future.
In closing, the church in Colossi was the kind of church which we would do well to be like. It was a church full of faith in Jesus Christ, love for others believers in Jesus, because of the certain hope they had, laid up in heaven for them.
Let's pray that our faith, love and hope, might be evident to all and that the “GOSPEL virus” of the risen Lord Jesus might be received by all we come in contact with.
As always if you would like to talk further about this or any other matter, please do so by email or call me on 0419 761 882. Be assured that the pastoral staff, elders, and many other leaders will be working together to ensure that we all both persevere and flourish in our faith over the coming weeks and months.

Further to the information that was circulated on the 13thof March, could you please note the following two updates
1. We will NOT be providing refreshments after morning church. We will be providing Tea / Coffee and water.
This being the case, could you please bring food (no nuts) for your own children only, as you would if they were going to school.
2. We will NOT be live streaming church tomorrow. IF you are not able to come to church, you may like to gather your family around a video sermon from John Piper from Galatians 1. Click here: https://vimeo.com/211371530 It is a timely talk on the priority of the gospel in this age.
We aim to have the sermon from Josh Russell on Acts 9 available after 3 pm you can listen to the sermon online after about 3 pm each Sunday on Elvanto. If you are a regular at church and have not yet got access to Elvanto you can request it from the Administrator.
While things may seem uncertain in our world, God is sovereignly certain in his plans to reconcile all things under Jesus Christ as Lord. Let’s be prayerful, making the most of every opportunity that God is giving us to honour him and bring his reconciling gospel word to the world around us.

The Gospel Coalition 2017 National Conference celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, unleashed by God in 1517 when Martin Luther nailed…
I’m writing to you in relation to the current COVID-19 pandemic in order to clarify how things look for THIS Sunday 15th March 2020 at SLBC. As you understand things may change at any point in time.
What follows is in the light of the latest recommendations from the Commonwealth Department of Health advice and discussions with elders, leaders of various ministries and staff, including medical doctors from our church.
Our response needs to be shaped by the gospel and so an outworking of Christian love. There is a wide range of reactions people have towards the current situation. Some are particularly concerned, while others are wondering why people are worried at all, and still others are at every state of unease in between. This is a great opportunity to let the world know we are disciples of Jesus by our love.
Currently, there are less than 500 people meeting at either of our gatherings. Therefore there is no prohibition on meeting as usual at Ironside in the morning and the Multi-Faith chaplaincy centre in the evening. However, in order for us to care for one another, and particularly for those who are older amongst us, we encourage everyone to note the following general hygiene requests and plans.
If you or children in your family have flu-like symptoms, please stay at home. While we don’t yet have a live stream of our gatherings sorted, we are working on it. In the meantime, you can listen to the sermon online after about 3pm each Sunday on Elvanto. If you are a regular at church and have not yet got access to Elvanto you can request it from the Administrator.
Please wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before morning tea, supper, or eating with others at church gatherings. It is possible that we will have hand sanitiser available at church, but we cannot guarantee it. We are working towards having hand sanitiser available at church in the future.
While we are not in the habit of greeting one another with a holy kiss, let's limit ourselves to a warm “hello” at church and for the time being, not shake hands with others, as much for their sake as anyone else’s.
Morning Tea / Supper / Church meals.
Please refrain from touching what others might eat. Kids church teachers will be ensuring children wash their hands before morning tea. Please wash /sanitise your own hands before having refreshments after church. Morning tea will be supervised and limited individual servings will be available.
Finally, as C.S Lewis would say, “… God whispers in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world”. In God’s sovereignty, people are being confronted with the reality of their own mortality. Let’s be praying that the gospel might be on our lips and received into the lives of people who are living under the shadow and fear of death every day, but currently more aware of it.
As always, if you have any concerns about this or any other matter please contact me by email or phone 0419 761 882.

Tomorrow night, the MTS Dessert Night is kicking off at 7pm in the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy building at UQ. You are warmly invited. Please come along to support our apprentices and find out about what they'll be doing.
We've got two great candidates for 2020, Josh Dickinson and Sophie McInerney, and we're very excited to have them join us. But of course to make that happen they will need our prayers and financial support.
The MTS Dessert Night will give us an opportunity to hear from God's word; from Josh and Sophie; we'll spend some time in prayer together; and there will be an opportunity to pledge support.
RSVP via Messenger or directly at the Facebook event. We need to have a rough idea of numbers for catering purposes.

This week, Roy preached on Romans 14. Here's the key verse, "For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died." (Romans 14:15)
Last week we looked at Romans 13. Three life-changing truths. What's the truth about the Law? "Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Love, therefore, is the fulfillment of the law."
This week we looked at Romans 12. Here's a little snippet of Josh's introduction on the Dangers of Application. Let us know your thoughts/questions by messenger.

The Gospel Coalition Queensland: "Where are we going?"
Monday 27th of February 10am-1pm
Ann Street Presbyterian Church Ministry Centre, Brisbane
We are convinced that one of the major challenges we face is working together effectively as we seek to reach our region for the Lord Jesus through building and planting churches. That’s why we are inviting you to join with many others to consider the encouragements and challenges of gospel ministry in our city. At this gathering, you will have the opportunity to hear from a range of experienced pastors from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast as they reflect on the state of the church of Jesus Christ across the region. Come and hear from Murray Lean, Phil Campbell, Greg Gardiner, Adam Ramsey, Steve Cree, Bill Forgeard and others. Join with other gospel workers in praying for the work of the gospel and think about how we can proclaim Christ more effectively together. We are praying that at least 100 gospel workers from across the region will be there - so please join us, and spread the word!
