“Strike the rock, and water will come out of it, so that the people may drink.” In the wilderness of Lent we are perhaps beginning to feel a thirst, a desire; and as we stay in the dryness that thirst will become more manifest. In the Old Testament Moses seeks God to quench the thirst; and yet God encourages Moses to take action; and it is in taking action that Moses overcomes the thirst that was experienced in the wilderness. In the gospel Jesus seeks out a foreigner, a stranger to quench his thirst. What do we do in order to fulfil our desires, and to quench our thirst? “those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty.” “The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”
""those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty …it will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life."

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

Loving God, the fountain of Life,
within a world parched by thirst
we seek to drink from the wellsprings of the Divine
for we believe in your eternal gift of renewal.
In Christ, the Rock that reveals living water,
we are refreshed and given new life
and in each other we find a harvest of Divine creation.
We will walk 'in Christ' as we walk through Lent,
companions sharing bread and seeking your glory.
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.
