In January 2020, Aunty Jean Phillips, one of the most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, is calling all Australian Christians to come together in prayer in the lead up to January 26 through the #ChangeTheHeart prayer services. This is the fifth year these prayer services have been run nationally and they are supported by Common Grace www.commongrace.org.au, a growing movement of over 45,000 Australian Christians passionate about Jesus and Justice. These services are a beautiful opportunity for us to stand with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sisters and brothers, while learning more about the true history of Australia.
Our local service is on Friday 24 January – 5.30pm at St David’s Anglican Cathedral – 23 Murray Street, Hobart, TAS.
Please come and join in and support Aboriginal Christian Leaders, Common Grace, and pray for our nation.

Can you believe it? Who would have believed that Kanye West would be on a Cathedral poster? Who would have believed that a self centred rapper would have released the album “Jesus is King? Who would have believed that a persecutor of followers of Jesus would become St Paul? Who would have believed there was more to Jesus’ story after his death on the Cross? Who would have believed that a Galilean carpenter was God’s King for all the world? Who would have believed that in the birth of a child in a stable we now had Immanuel God with us?
Just because something seems unlikely doesn’t make it untrue.
The story of God’s salvation in the Bible and peoples lives is full of twists and turns. Can you believe it? Advent and Christmas brings this question to us along with the deeper questions of do you? Do we believe in Jesus’ kingdom, do we believe in changed lives, do we believe in God’s love for us?
Belief often gets a bad rap but we have good grounds for our faith that in the coming of Jesus we now have “God downloaded” available to everyone, and love now streaming to all then we will want to sing with Kanye, The Hallelujah Chorus, Mary and the Angels “Glory to God in the highest heaven for Jesus the King is born.”
