Welcome to The Refinery.
If you are visiting us today, we would love for you to stay for a tea or coffee and some delicious morning tea at the end of the service.
The Refinery is an Apostolic and Prophetic ministry that serves as a modern day clarion with the intent to usher in transformation, kingdom order, and biblical alignment on the Gold Coast and nations through the church of Jesus Christ.

Continue to pray for each other daily. How good will it be if everyone is being prayed for everyday!

Today’s Message is The Good News of Great Joy
Today’s Scripture Reading.
Luke 2:8-14 (AMP)
8 In the same region there were shepherds staying out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone around them, and they were terribly frightened.
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for [a]all the people.
11 For this day in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (the Messiah).
12 And this will be a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find a Baby wrapped in [swaddling] cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Then suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host (angelic army) praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest [heaven],
And on earth peace among men with whom He is well-pleased.”
Hebrews 11:3 (AMP)
3 By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.
Philippians 4:13 (AMP)
24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord].
Psalm 121:2 (AMP)
2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
Psalm 46:1 (AMP)
46 God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble.
John 14:1-3 (AMP)
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
14 “Do not let your heart be troubled (afraid, cowardly). Believe [confidently] in God and trust in Him, [have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and] believe also in Me.
2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and I will take you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.
