Church reviews its part in religious education program
Ettalong Baptist Church has signalled it is reviewing its involvement in the Special Religious Education program at Brisbane Water Secondary College.
"The Program is changing," the congregation was told in the church's December 24 newsletter.
"The school is asking us to go to a seminar-style program.
"We believe this would not provide a quality opportunity to share the gospel and have one to one opportunities as needed as it has been until now."
The newsletter asked readers: "Please pray for ... those making the decisions and for the possible changes."
The program has been provided by YouthLife, formerly known as the Religious Education Ministries, since 1989.
Participating churches include Ettalong Uniting Church, Umina Uniting Church, Hardys Bay Community Church, Hope Church Central Coast (Umina), Woy Woy Anglican Church, Umina Anglican Church, Umina Salvation Army, Woy Woy Presbyterian Church and St Matthews Lutheran Church, as well as Ettalong Baptist Church.
Youthlife operates an opportunity shop in West St, Umina.
