Fellowship in God, commenced in late 2002, when a small group attending CESA, Christian Educational Services Australia, decided to meet every Sabbath rather than once a month.
For a time, FiG and CESA worked in conjunction with services each month and celebrating the appointed Holy Days of God. CESA managed the Feast of Tabernacles at Caloundra each year and FiG provided the services for the rest of the Festivals.
Later, Fig moved to a more independent position with the influx of people from more divergent Sabbath-keeping backgrounds but still supports the Feast at Caloundra.
Most of the members of FiG have long histories of Sabbath keeping and many have worshiped God on his annual Festivals most of their lives. Many people new to the Sabbath are also included.
Most Sabbaths we have an interactive bible study where The Word of God is discussed openly, and all present are free to participate as they will, within the bounds of love.
Some Sabbaths we hold a traditional service complete with hymns or songs, prayer and a message. We encourage personal sharing from members as they are led. There is fellowship time of tea, coffee and snacks immediately after the service.
We hold that as we are all one in Christ, women are actively encouraged to participate.
Once a month those who can meet for lunch at a venue nearby after church.
We have loose affiliations with similar Sabbath Keeping groups in Australia.
The men have a casual group, which meets for coffee and fellowship with people of like mind from many backgrounds. They meet every month on the first Wednesday.
There is a visitation programme.
We support and maintain close contact with those involved in the Sabbatarian Bible College and Anchor of Hope School, outside Blantyre, in Malawi and with the New Zealand churches who oversee this project.
