“72 people, 26 ‘seekers’, an unforgettable morning and afternoon, $600+ for our church budget, a legendary lunch! Praise God!” writes Darius Ignasiak – reporting on the first public worship service of a new Adventist church plant in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. While as yet a name has not been chosen, Care Groups are meeting and a Care Groups Workshop will be happening this Friday evening. A planning envisioning retreat is planned for two weeks time. Some values are already clearly established – participation, acceptance, sharing, worship, witness and conversation! For the first worship service Acts 11:19-30 and 13:1-4 were read – and all involved in discovering the experience of Antioch as a multiplying church. Many of the "pioneers" of this new church are second and third generation Polish Adventist.
