Dear friends and family in Christ,

1) We’re excited to announce that Dr Steve Ryder,  a mighty Man of God, will be ministering the Word of the Lord and miracles of Jesus at CTFM in Hallam (Melbourne) this Pentecost Sunday 27th May 9:30am & 6.30pm.

Come and hear his powerful testimony of radical transformation through God’s amazing grace and love!

While on parole for armed bank robbery in the 1960’s Steve Ryder was apprehended by God at a Billy Graham Crusade, where he gave his life to Christ.  Steve then became the first prisoner in Australia to complete a Doctrine of Theology by Correspondence while completing his prison term.  Since his release from prison in the mid 1970’s, Dr. Steve Ryder founded Reach Out For Christ Ministries and has planted Churches all around the world in Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Cyprus, Greece, Philippines, Portugal, Pakistan, United States and of course Australia.  Dr. Ryder has and continues to fulfill the work of an Evangelist, preaching the uncompromised Word of God with signs and wonders following, particularly in the realm of Divine Healing – the blind have seen, the lame have walked and the dead have been raised!  Apart from doing the work of an Evangelist, Dr. Ryder continues to Pastor his local Church and Reach Out For Christ headquarters on the Gold Coast, Australia – preaching faith and equipping the Body of Christ for the work of the ministry.

2) Also for those of you in the Melbourne area, you’re also welcome to join our weekly intercessory prayer meeting this Friday 25th May at 7:30pm, that is open to the wider Body of Christ to pray for Australia’s Spiritual Revival, Reformation and Transformation in the Kingdom of God.

Our Youth service meets regularly on Saturdays at 5pm.

All of these meetings will be held at Catch the Fire Apostolic Centre, 23 Melverton Drive Hallam.  Mel 96:G2
