I’m really excited to be able to announce a new church we will be planting in the Sunshine Coast, QLD – The Church in Caloundra, which will be pastored by Kevin Sepulveda. Starting a new church is always a bittersweet moment, but The Church in Punchbowl’s loss is The Church in Caloundra’s gain!
This church has been a couple of years in the making now, and many have been eagerly awaiting this day. Kevin and his family have been busy organising all the logistics and now that a hall has been locked in, we now have firm dates, and all systems are GO! You can find all the specifics about the new church, such as location, meeting and soul-winning times, on their website:
So here are the events planned in the coming weeks:
On Saturday night the 23rd of September, will be the Sepulveda Family’s farewell party. This night will be spent over bowling and food at the AMF in Revesby. We’ll meet at the bowling alley at 4:00 PM. Free parking is at the rear of the complex, in the Revesby Workers Club carpark, and there will be a special treat for those who are on time. The cost of this activity will be covered by the church offerings so that everyone can be there, regardless of their current financial situation. If you are from QLD and are planning to be in Sydney for this weekend, you are also welcome to join us. Just let us know you are coming.
On Sunday night, the 24th of September will be Kevin’s ordination. This gathering will be very different to our normal Sunday nights because it will be a night of prayer and fasting. I’ll be sharing a few words, as well as some of the men in our church. This will be the Sepulveda Family’s last Sunday with us, so make sure you make it to this gathering, and prepare your heart to pray for this future ministry.
The next weekend a group of us from Sydney will be flying up to the Sunshine Coast for the weekend and I will be arriving on Friday morning, the 29th September.
On Saturday the 30th September, there will be a soul-winning marathon to kick-off the start of the new church. We’ll be meeting at the church building at 9:00 AM that morning.
Then on Sunday, the 1st of October, The Church in Caloundra will have its first official gathering at 9:00 AM. I’ll be leaving right after the Sunday morning gathering to make it back in time for our our own gathering in Sydney in the evening.

The wait is finally over. No more excuses. Let’s do a great work for Jesus Christ! I’m looking forward to how he will use this new ministry for his glory. So, we’ll see you all soon, at The Church in Caloundra.
