A thought ...
Getting comfortable in the way we do things may feel good- but does it open our eyes, hearts and hands to the message of Jesus?
Maybe someone is able to attend?
A sad loss of great and gentle leaders.
Interesting thought for mission.
Service tomorrow 9.30 " Money, Money, Money" are we the rich fools? Luke 12: 13-21. We will also have the debut of our newly installed Allen organ generously gifted to us by the Orange Uniting Church. Gulgong service at 2.30pm in the Gulgong CWA Hall. Everyone welcome.
Worship Sunday 9.30am. Special guest speaker Allison Cooke, Associate Director, Australian Partnerships, Uniting World. UnitingWorld is the overseas arm of the Uniting Church connecting communities in developing countries. Come and hear Allison share about the work UnitingWorld does.
Something to watch and listen to in the context of the recent synod meeting. I love the clarity of the message.
Who says prayer should be carefully formulated? Love that this picture reminds us that God is listening, no matter how garbled our thinking!
Lynne Waller I can see this happening....
An interesting challenge! I wonder if a congregation could consider an idea such as this? 😄
Church tomorrow 9.30am. The story of the Good Samaritan. We will be asking the question "who am I in this story?". Everyone welcome the heaters will be on well before service so don't worry about the forecast minus 3 degrees!
An interesting approach- I wonder how it would go!
An excellent summary of Synod 2019. Food for thought and action!
We use so many words as we gather and worship. Does this mean we miss things? This reflection on silence opens pathways to new ways of praying and being.
And a summary of Day 2.
Synod 2019. Conversation, challenge and worship.
See what’s happening- the wraps bring it all together 😊
The first keynote at Synod. Some thought provoking ways of looking at church in community.
A thoughtful read.
Some ideas to ponder on .
This week we are sharing our worship with Gordon Pymble Uniting Church - virtually! Working with an online connection, we will begin our worship together. Join us for virtual worship and real fellowship. 9.30 am.
This is an interesting read reminding us that we often have to consider historical contexts as we read the Bible. The concept or principles of Jesus message is what we seek to understand.
This Sunday morning we will be sharing together our ideas about transforming, diversity and future. A chance to wonder how the week’s readings help us understand these words, and what they might mean for our lives. All welcome!
Meeting people where they are at. Making a difference.
We often find it hard to sit together in silence and yet, it can be the most important thing we offer someone- including ourselves.

We have been looking at radical hospitality as mission. Open doors, shared plates, fellowship while sharing a meal. How do others show hospitality towards their community?
Worship this Sunday 9.30am. "The BBQ on The Beach" who is this Jesus who meets us in the everyday activities of our life? Communion will be celebrated. All Welcome! Tea and Coffee following the service.
This Sunday our worship will be blessed by the presence of our NSW/ACT moderator, Rev. Simon Hansford. We are sure his message will be inspiring! Both Mudgee and Rylstone Sunday congregations will join together for a time of fellowship and sharing. The service at 9.30 will be followed by morning tea and then lunch. Everyone is welcome as we walk the road of faith together. 🌈😃
It’s wonderful that Palm Sunday has become a day to join the crowds and make a noise about the people on the edges. Hosanna!
