WEDNESDAY 13TH DECEMBER

SATURDAY 16TH DECEMBER 2017
5.00 pm – Contemporary Service
Our monthly Contemporary Service uses contemporary music (mostly) and today’s language. We use various images of God and generally avoid religious jargon. We read from scripture and other sources of wisdom.It helps to wear your thinking cap, but just relaxing into the service is fine too.
Some comments from people who have attended include:
“I really enjoy being able to say prayers that I feel comfortable saying” – 80 yr old woman
“Thinking of God in different ways unlocks my imagination” – 56 yr old man
This service is held on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
SUNDAY 17th DECEMBER 2017
3rd Sunday in Advent.
During Advent we welcome guest speakers. This week, Margie Virgin, retired Chaplain, continues the Advent journey. her focus will be “Daring to Hope”. The journey isn’t finished yet but unlike our weary travellers on their way to Bethlehem, we know the joyful end to the story which they are yet to experience, Advent 3 invites us to consider how we may be conduits of joy to those in our world who are also travelling in darkness, waiting and daring to hope. Margie will speak at both Sunday services.
8.00 am – Spoken Holy Communion
A spoken communion service from the Prayer Book for Australia. For those who enjoy a spoken service without music, there is time for quiet contemplation and prayer.
9.30 am – Sung Holy Communion
The Order of Holy Communion with hymns and sung prayers is shared each Sunday. The lovely pipe organ plays hymns from The Australian Hymn Book, and occasionally special additional hymns.
Fellowship follows the service where new attendees are welcomed and regulars catch up on news over fresh coffee, tea and goodies.
