Shabbat -Passover Theme 

(note- official Passover end of April)

Friday MARCH 29th 

6.30pm for 7pm start

RSVP Wed. Feb 27th


We aim to gather for a fellowship meal on the first Friday of each month (but needs to be confirmed) and arrive approx. 6.30pm for a 7pm sit-down meal. We generally require a confirmation of booking for the meal for catering purposes but seek to be flexible as a family that also welcomes unexpected guests!

We are on a journey in appreciating how to observe the Sabbath in our diverse experiences... but in all this we believe the Lord is calling His people to come into His rest... to take life a bit slower... and spend more time with Him!

Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to me all you who are weak and heavy-laden and I will give you rest and refresh your souls.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest- [relief and ease, and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet] for your souls.

For My yoke is wholesome and My burden is light and easy."

Christians are becoming more passionate concerning the Biblical Feasts of The Lord celebrated by the Jewish people. In doing this, they are enriched in the Hebrew traditions and discover new depths to their understanding of the Christian Gospel truths and relate more intimately with Jesus (Yeshua). 

Passover is one of the Spring feasts celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere (for us it's in Autumn) but was declared outlawed when the Roman Church became anti-Jewish. Easter was decided to be the time to celebrate Jesus' death and resurrection but is also aligned to other pagan traditions.


Both the celebrating of Passover and observing the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week (Saturday) have been both controversial and divisive within the "body of Christ".


Here at Shalom Worship Centre in Merrigum we seek to be neither, but desire to nurture wholesome conversation in gaining more understanding of God's heart and purpose for both.

We believe a greater revelation of the richness of our Jewish roots in the Christian faith further deepens and enriches our faith, and seeks to bridge the divide over the centuries between Jew and Gentile, and speaks of the "one new man" in the New Testament (Ephesians 3).

Shalom shalom...
