Journeying with God as we love and serve the community

As we work to open up the front view of our church building, it is looking fresh and inviting.

We are continuing to update the front streetscape - looking forward to a new fence and noticeboard.

Melanie enjoyed dinner with everyone, here concentrating on pizza.

It is lovely to have Karen back amongst us, sharing dinner.

Lent Events
Preparing for easter
What is happening?

Lent Event: We are participating in Lent Event, from Uniting World. What wlll you give up to help someone else? By deciding to go without during Lent, and saving the money you would have spent, you can donate to a country that needs our help. See for more information, or collect a box from Mudgee Uniting Church. 

Lent Bible Study and Discussion: A series of reflective evenings with Jorie, focused on the messages of Lent. Each Wednesday from 18 February through to Easter, at 5,30 at the Mudgee Uniting Church. If you have questions and enjoy thoughtful discussion join us to learn more, and to share your ideas.

Words of Wisdom

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”

Bob Hope

“These children are here. How they got here and why they got here is a whole other conversation. But we have the responsibility to look after them. It's as simple as that.”

Bryan Brown

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. ”

Calvin Coolidge

“Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day. ”
