Sundays at 10.00am
Reverend Mark Hewitt
Join us for community and worship any Sunday at 10.00am, followed by morning tea and a chat.
Intergenerational worship – where all the children of God, regardless of age, gather together in the presence of God.
Scattered throughout the church space are creative tables. Everyone is welcome to sit at our intergenerational creative tables during the service. They are for anyone who likes to colour/doodle/draw/whatever while worshipping as an aid for focussing and prayer. There are tables at the back with art materials and Lego for those who like to be creative during worship. We also have needles and wool for those who like to knit. We ask you to knit squares which will be made in to blankets to give to those in need.
Everyone is welcome to move between the chairs, creative tables, family play area, and the creche room. Worshiping God doesn’t have to be a static thing. Please move around as much as you like.
On the first Sunday we all share Holy Communion together. As is the custom of the Uniting Church all are welcome at the table.
A Thin Place
Come and join us for A Thin Place, a quiet hour of personal prayer and reflection at creative stations, with contemplative holy communion.
‘A Thin Place’ is a multi-sensory, creative, experiential worship experience. It is an entirely private and personal time for each person. There is no interaction with others, and no input from a leader. It is an opportunity to encounter God in a quiet space where all senses are involved and there is time to quieten the mind and interact with God in a place of peace and beauty.
When: Sunday 25th August 5.30pm – 6.30pm
Break Fast is short for Break (the) Fast. Food, Friendship, Faith
Cafe-style relaxed space where people can chat around tables, sharing the daily breaking of the overnight fast, while breaking the greater fasting of spiritual stillness, reflective conversation and community friendship in the midst of busy-ness. People come in and buy their breakfast that has been prepared by our kitchen team. There will be conversation around shared tables, acoustic music playing and at some point a reflection by chaplain, Rev Anne Hewitt.
There are opportunities for people interested to join the Break Fast team.
Contact Anne Hewitt through the office: email@example.com.
When: To be advised
Come and enjoy a noisy and fun time with us as we interact with God and each other in new and different ways, through craft, activities and dinner.
Messy Church usually includes:
~ creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy
~ a celebration time which might involve story, prayer, song, games and similar
~ a meal together
It models and promotes good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family,
an extended family, and a global and local church family.
The aims are to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to worship together to help people of all ages feel they belong in church and to each other, to help people have fun and be creative together to introduce Jesus through hospitality, friendship, stories and worship.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Contact: Carolyn 0439 871 465 or firstname.lastname@example.org
When: Sunday 15th September 3.30-5.30pm
Cost: $15 per family including light tea
