27 July • 360 Life: Don’t Do Life Alone • 6:00pm
One of the biggest things we value at 360 is community. Being a part of a community gives us a sense of identity, belonging and purpose. And not just any community but a community that is all about crazy love and intentional relationships. 360 Life will be the hub for discipling, connecting, sharing and growing. 360 Life happens on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month from 6:00pm-8:00pm in the Teen Room for all high school, youth, and young adults.

29 Jul • New Series: Ask Anything • 11:00am
God is not afraid of our questions or our thoughts. It is us who are sometimes uncomfortable with questions—even though it is proven that our best learning is done through discovery. In healthy families no question, no topic is off limits. We at Papsda believe in being an inclusive, loving, real and healthy community (family). So over the next six weeks or so we will be exploring, discussing and wrestling with whatever questions you may have about life, faith, and God. Nothing is off limits… We’d love to hear YOUR QUESTIONS and during the Ask Anything series, we’ll do our best to answer those questions. Fire your questions at us using the hashtag #askpapsda or anonymously.

29 Jul • 360TurnUp • 7:30 PM
For all 360 peeps (high school, youth and young adults). Come along to our White Theme Party (wear anything white) for a fun night of bands, praise and worship, open mic, fun, food and fellowship. The cafe will be open for takeaways. 7:30pm-10:30pm, Saturday, 29 July in the hall.

2 Aug • CAP Job Clubs • 11:00 AM
It can be hard to stay motivated when you’re searching for work, especially when you’re on your own. At a CAP Job Club, you will meet other job seekers and you can support and encourage each other along the way. The eight-session “Steps To Employment” course takes you through each step of the job-hunting process. Doing the course equips you with essential tools such as: how to apply for jobs, how to write a great CV and how to have confidence in interviews. It’s also an opportunity to have a look at your strengths and identify your hidden talents! Full info here.

2 Aug • CAP Release Groups • 7:00 PM
Release Groups are a new CAP Ministry, designed to help people who are struggling with life-controlling habits. Debilitating, crushing and impossible to overcome, are just some of the words associated with habits like smoking, drinking, shopping and even internet addiction. Enter CAP and your local church (Papsda). Joining a Release Group will give you practical ways to help you overcome life-controlling habits, and experience the freedom that the love of God brings! Run in support-group style, Release Groups are designed to be a safe place, where people who are being held captive by their habits or addictions can come, share, work through a course workbook, and receive one-on-one coaching and ongoing support. Full info.

Urgent: Meals Needed for Families in Crisis
We have several families in crisis at the moment. If you are able to provide fresh or freezable meals for another family either as a one-off or on a weekly or monthly basis, please contact Brigitte Bagg either by e-mail or call the church office on (09) 278-7786.

Each week we video the worship service for live streaming on the internet. We also take photos from time to time for Facebook, the website and other forms of media. If for any reason, you would not like either yourself or your child(ren) to be videoed or photographed, please speak to someone at Guest Central, Brigitte Bagg, Tracey Ryan or any other staff member. Choosing to sit behind the cameras will also minimize your chance of being filmed.
