If that’s you, welcome! January is a time when the locals head to the beach, but it’s often a time of new beginnings for many people. Packing and unpacking boxes, enrolling kids into school, and starting a new job in a new workplace is a mix of fun, excitement and apprehension. If you’re one of the many people who are moving here, we would love to welcome you to our city. I think you’ve come to a great place.
Moving can be hard. We’ve done it ourselves as a family a couple of times. It takes time to connect into a local community. You’ll also find out that there is more to Launceston than the Cataract Gorge (although I do recommend walking there regularly). So, if you’re looking for new friends, figuring out where to get a good coffee, or the best playgrounds for the kids, we’d love to share our local knowledge. Please do get in touch if you’d like some advice or even a tour around the city.
January is also a terrific time to find out more about Jesus, and come along to a church for the first time. It’s also a time when people look to reconnect with church, or find a new church. In the Launceston area there are a number of great churches, and we’re eager to help you find one that teaches the Bible, preaches Christ, and is faithful to God’s word.
You’re also very welcome to join us one Sunday. Grace Presbyterian is a bunch of ordinary people from all over the wider Launceston area, each with our own backgrounds, ages, life stages, and experiences. What brings us together is God and his grace to us in Jesus.
Please be in touch if you’d like to find out more.
