Journeying with God as we love and serve the community

Morning Tea again!

How lovely it was to share with our friends from Rylstone, and other places far away.

Sharing morning tea

Morning tea is a time of fellowship and fun. Thanks to those who provided the delicious food!

Closure of Ministry Service

We were joined by Kevin, our presbytery chair, and others from far and wide!

Rev. Graeme Gardiner

On Sunday we celebrated Graeme's closure of ministry, and the commissioning of our Lay Ministry Team members.

Welcome to 2016 
Worship in the Cudgegong Cluster.   
A reminder of our worship times:

Mudgee : 9.30 am Sunday mornings. All-age worship followed by morning tea.
Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sunday each month. 

Rylstone: 9.30 am each Sunday. Morning tea follows! 

Worshipping together strengthens our faith, encourages us to share the journey and builds relationships that bring us together with God. 

As we sing together, pray together and reflect on the word of God we find peace, inspiration and strength to go out into the world and live in God's way. 



Farewell to Graeme and Leigh 

Over the next 2 Sundays we will be farewelling Graeme and Leigh as they take up the call to minister in Springwood. 

Over the last few years we have been blessed to have them in our church communities - Graeme in the Uniting Church in Mudgee and Rylstone, and Leigh in the Anglican Church in Rylstone. 

Graeme's closure of ministry service is on Sunday 7 February at 9.30 am at Mudgee Uniting Church. Come and share in morning tea afterwards. 

On Sunday 14 February, there will be a shared closure of ministry service at St James Anglican Church in Rylstone, followed by lunch. 

Everyone is welcome to say farewell to Graeme and Leigh. They have given to the congregations in many ways.
