A gift from Terrigal Uniting Church - getting ready for Christmas!
"Freedom is Never Free" special Remembrance Day service this Sunday 0930. Join us as we reflect on the end of WW1 100 years ago and offer up prayers for peace.
A lovely thought to start the morning.
Just this ...
Sometimes getting up and ready is a challenge, but this article gives us reasons. Connecting with each other each week to learn together is important for growth.
This is an important post to read and pray about.
Love this as a reminder - getting into unexpected spots in the community and transforming lives - especially our own through making connections.
An interesting article from Insights about the challenges all churches face. The challenge then is to be innovative - use our resources in new and different ways. Worth a read.
This article highlights the importance of nurturing, and finding ways to nurture, personal faith through daily life. Taking time to stop, reflect and be comfortable with doubt is something everyone grows from.
This Sunday, 30th Sep, join us for the Blessing of the Animals service. Bring your fury, feathered or scaly friend along for a special blessing. Service starts at 9.30am.
Today we shared our thinking about the Assembly decision. It’s a start to an ongoing dialogue. The more we listen, the more we share, the greater our mutual growth. Most importantly the more we will love.
Be still for the presence of the Lord.
At a recent meeting the Cudgegong Cluster Church Council, representing Rylstone, Mudgee and Gulgong congregations, set aside $1,000 to use for drought relief in the Mid-Western Regional area. Initially, $500 worth of grocery items have been purchased and these will be distributed through the ‘We Care Community Shop’ in Mudgee
This morning we mixed traditional and cafe style worship, joining together to reflect and then breaking into table groups for conversation, sharing and prayer. We shared our thoughts about the text from the John reading. We prayed for ourselves and others we knew. And we sang. It was lovely to be together.
Imagine this! Being in the community, and with the community.
Important reading to understand the processes within our wider church.
To our team of lay leaders in Mudgee and Rylstone who have been leading worship for many years now, supported by a resource minister and now a supply minister. Across our Presbytery there are many who offer leadership in worship each week, alongside full time work, community activity and family. Your faith enables great things! Thank you for the time, dedication and commitment that has been shared. The encouragement, support, creative thinking, adventurous services that have connected with our congregations and shown new ways to worship. Thank you for stretching and strengthening to create worship that is heartfelt and authentic. All of this is us. 😊
