Our God is a consuming fire
The elements of the Eucharist, bread and wine, are consecrated and consumed. Communicants (that is, those who consume the elements) may speak of "receiving the Eucharist", as well as "celebrating the Eucharist".
Christians generally recognize a special presence of Christ in this rite, though they differ about exactly how, where, and when Christ is present. The Greek noun εὐχαριστία (eucharistia), means "thanksgiving".
Now let’s look again at this ‘rite’ from a different perspective
In the rite of making Eucharist,
In our giving thanks
We are consumed into the Body of Christ
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you”

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?
Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.
On behalf of the St Paul’s Council and community, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the financial contribution from Lotterywest for the conservation work to our heritage listed community hall. Without this financial support from Lotterywest, we would not have had the capacity to undertake the required conservation work to ensure our facility remains a meeting place for so many different community groups.
St Paul’s is committed to growing community & sharing our facilities with the wider community and greatly appreciates the partnership with Lotterywest to assist us to continue to serve the community

God of Awe and Wonder,
We are formed in the fire of your passion,
We are given life in the fire of your consuming Love.
In the Spirit of Christ we shall stand straight
and know freedom from the bondage of all that leads to death.
Living God, in your Divine Love we hope and trust in and through
Christ, your fire of perfection revealed in all.
Why come to church?
There are many and varied reasons that bring us here Sunday by Sunday: our personal journey and our innate desire for ‘community’ being just two.
We also enter into a ‘conversation’ that takes us beyond the everyday, a dialogue with and between ourselves and our calling into full humanity. And we come to encounter the Divine as we consume the sacraments, a process that mirrors our desire to be consumed by love’s Divine fire.
