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.

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.
An interesting read.
The Flying Padre, David Shrimpton, will be visiting us again this coming Friday. Everyone is invited to a Pot Luck dinner and chat at the Mudgee Church at 7pm Friday 16th. Please bring a plate to share.
The challenge of worship!!
A lovely way to bring community together! Nature is such a great shared experience.
Some food for thought in this post. Individually we respond to Lent but how much impact in the community when a church collaboratively makes a commitment such as this. Visible commitment.
Silence is a treasure, and a chance to really listen, with your whole being.
Laura introduced our Lenten reflection beautifully this morning. The rainbow is God's promise to be with us always
Tomorrow is Lent 1. We will be reflecting on the promise in a rainbow, and Jesus' desert experience. Everyone welcome from 9.30. Morning tea will follow and then some focussed discussion for our future. Looking forward to the fellowship! 😀
Women's World Day of Prayer is an ecumenical sharing opportunity that highlights the lives of women in different locations around the globe. Each year it is held in a different local church, and the service is written by women in a specific country globally. This year, the service is written by women from Suriname. It is on Friday March 2, 2018. Locally, you can attend in Rylstone at Rysltone Uniting Church, or in Mudgee at St John's Anglican Church (see flyer). Everyone is welcome to pray, praise and learn about the lives of others.
Well done Lithgow!
The second wonderful event yesterday was the launch of Jorie's new book, A Poet in the Parish. A book of poetry and reflections written over Jorie's time in Gulgong. We heard a reading about a snail - Jorie's ability to put words together to deliver strong messages of faith, love and peace are inspiring. Copies are available for purchase.
Yesterday we had a wonderful morning. During our church service, our Ministry team was commissioned by the congregation. The team is charged with the responsibility of nurturing faith, leading worship, supporting all other members of the congregation. A great group with lots of ideas!
Flying Padre- Broken Hill Flying Patrol A late post, but here are some lovely photos of Molly and Alexander 'testing' Pastor David Shrimpton's aircraft after his recent radio equipment updates at the Mudgee Airport. 28.1.2018 Young Alexander was so excited perhaps I have a future flying Padre on my hands. *Post by Laura Johnson
Ash Wednesday service this Wednesday 7pm. Everyone welcome.
As we approach Lent, you may be thinking about your response this year. Will you give up something each day, challenging yourself to do without and to remember the sacrifice of Jesus? Or will you take up a spiritual practice that is new? This time of focus can bring new insight, new strength and new spirituality. The idea in this link may inspire you.
If you follow the links in this post there are some beautiful words for this,Transfiguration Sunday.
Exploring The Lectionary bible study starts again tomorrow night, Tuesday, at 7pm at the church. Everyone welcome to come along and explore together.
It’s nearly Pancake Day!
Speaking our faith is sometimes difficult but here are some thoughts.
This afternoon at 3 pm at Mudgee Airport you can check out the Flying Padre’s plane and I am sure hear more stories of life in the air. All welcome. And thank you David for sharing with the Cudgegong Cluster over the last weeks. It’s been great!
