Regular YYA begins for 2018

The first Youth and Young Adults (YYA) night of 2018 will begin next Friday on the 2nd February at 8pm. Join us for a night of worship, bible study and fellowship!

For more information, there will be an induction session after our regular Sunday Service on the 28th January.

This year we will be studying the Gospel of John which focuses on the major miracles performed by Jesus and his glorification through crucifixion. If you think you’d be interested in this book of the Bible, please do feel free to join us on Friday nights at 8pm. Both Christians and non-Christians are more than welcome to join.

There will also be a new change this year where we will be hosting some sort of activity (badminton, kBBQ, bowling, etc) on every 3rd Friday of each month so feel free invite some friends and chill with us.

 

 

Christmas Celebration Night 2017!

Christmas is right around the corner again! However despite the Christmas trees, ornaments and songs of Santa floating around, Christmas is ultimately about the birth of our Saviour Jesus.

Anzac Cookie Recipe! MCCC Christmas Celebration Night, 2015

Hi all,

If you are reading this post, chances are that you attended our Christmas Celebration Night on Saturday 19 Dec, 2015.

You would have received a jar of delicious dry ingredients to make Anzac Cookies! Here are the ingredients and the recipe below – it’s super easy and it’s suitable for the whole family to make together.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp bicarb soda

Just add:

  • 125g butter
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup (substitute with treacle for a deeper, more caramelised taste)

 

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees (C) fan force, and line baking tray.
  2. Empty out dry ingredients from jar into a mixing bowl.
  3. Melt 125g butter.
  4. Add melted butter and 3 tablespoons golden syrup in bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll out balls of cookie dough onto baking tray.*
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Yields 18-20 small cookies or 10-12 large cookies.**

* Cookie dough should be a sticky consistency but still hold its shape when rolled out. Add more rolled oats if mixture is too wet.

** If it falls apart – also makes a delicious crumble!! Serve with baked apples and vanilla ice cream.

 

How did your cookies turn out? Ours are below! Why not bring your finished products to share with us one Sunday – we’d loved to get to know you more!

Sharing Night: Faith in Life

Sharing Night: Faith in Life

Being a Christian doesn’t just mean attending church on Sundays and striving to be a “good person”. So what does the Christian faith look like in everyday life?

On Friday 19th of September, we will be eating dinner together and hear some sharings from a panel of people (a high schooler, a university student, and a working adult) of the joys and challenges in life as followers of Jesus. We will then split up into small groups and discuss what it looks like & means to be a Christian.

We welcome newcomers to attend this night for fantastic food, good company, and a meaningful discussion on the Christian faith! We promise that there will be friendly faces and cake at the end of the night 😀

Where? Melbourne Chinese Christian Church (29 Summerhill Rd, Glen Iris)
When? Friday 19th September
What time? Dinner 7pm; Program 8pm. Scheduled to finish ~ 9.15pm.
What to bring? Bible, pen, gold coin donation (optional – to cover cost)

See you all there!
