A celebration of forward thinking, careful planning and most importantly, faith. What will the next 40 bring?
Imagine if ...
This week is Refugee Week. Many stories to share.
We are all complex and different. God made us that way!
Action for Refugee Week 2018. The theme for Refugee Week this year is #with refugees. It encourages all of us to remember refugees are people, like us. Living lives in difficult times. Wanting the best for their children and families. They, like others we know and live with, sometimes struggle to provide for them. So, From 3 June until 24 June we are once again gathering donations to support refugees living in Australia. Drop your donations of rice, beans, pasta, tinned tomatoes, corn or beans, or deodorants, nappies, shampoo, toothbrushes, shopping bags into the church whenever it’s open. God gives to us abundantly, inviting us to do likewise. Thank you to those who have helped in previous donations.
An inspiring article - and fairy lights!!
Thinking a lot about those suffering such hard times due to drought.
As darkness falls, days shorter and shorter, we draw inside to the warm. But what if we stayed and drank in the last colour in the sky? And felt the touch of God?
Learn. Share. Grow. Words from the theme of reconciliation week. What change those words could make.
Today we joined together midway between Rylstone and Mudgee at Lue Hall. We lunches and enjoyed the autumn sunshine. A time of joy! Playing a game of Finska brought a competitive challenge - who would win? Lots of near misses and belly laughs!
Sunday activity this week: normal services at 9.30 am in both Mudgee and Rylstone and then a time for sharing from 12 at Lue Public School. We are grateful for the generous offer of the location. 😃
Tomorrow lunchtime we are meeting as a cluster at Lue School ( not Lue Hall as advertised) to share our time of fellowship and fun. Barbq lunch, time to chat and meet our Presbytery minister. Everyone welcome, from 12 noon. See you there!
Something to include in our prayers.
A Pentecost message! Yesterday we considered the power and rampant energy of the spirit - and its transforming power.
At Mudgee we see ourselves as a safe and inclusive church- every one is made in the image of God.
So many things to be thankful for. So many times we take things for granted. Offer a prayer of gratitude today.
The simplest of truths! Today, look around at the beauty you see in the world- people, nature, yourself - and repeat this truth!
Some essential reading. A forward looking document that tells some of our history as a church, and community of believers.
A touch of colour with our new rainbow.
Join us with our congregations from Mudgee and Rylstone, at Lue Public School. Barbecue, sharing, games and fun. Ever wondered what happens when we get together to share the Good News? This is the chance to find out!
These are some important questions to ask each day. If we live as Jesus asked, the answer to them would surely be yes. How can you answer them?
Tuesday night this week we restart our Exploring The Lectionary series after a two week break. Come and join us as we look at the weeks readings and see what they say to us today. Tuesday 7-8pm at the church, everyone welcome.
Worship this Sunday 9.30am.Communion will be celebrated. Everyone Welcome.
While I often find these ‘recipe’ style posts a little stereotyped, this one serves to remind the reader of the needs of young families- but also to others who arrive at a church.
We started Easter Sunday with the sparseness of Good Friday. by the end of our service, we were reminded of the colour, joy and promise of God, through the Resurrection. Alleluia! He is risen!
New church sign!
Sunrise service tomorrow 6am Flirtation Hill Mudgee. Easter service 9.30am at the church. Everyone welcome.
A great example of ecumenical passion. Making a statement together.
