Where is church for you?
How do you read the bible? An interesting comment on the way we all read differently and a reminder that sharing how we read is a part of being within a community of the faithful.
A reflection to ponder on.
We are pleased to announce that worship will recommence this Sunday 5th July 9.30am at the Mudgee Uniting Church. There will be strict social distancing and hygiene measures in place and a limit to 39 people in the building. Singing will also not be allowed as it is high risk. Communion will be celebrated in a non contact manner. At this time there will be no morning tea following the service. We would love to see you at church but ask that if you are not feeling well you stay at home, for the safety of all of our members and friends, and join one of the many Uniting Church online services available.
This week is a celebration of 43 years of the U it if Church- an Australian Church for all of us.
We can’t sing yet - here’s an explanation.
Interesting conversations and thoughtful questions. Great way to spend sometime on a Sunday.
We have been sharing and connecting and helping each other . Last night as we met to plan it was clear that we weren’t closed . New ways of worshipping are emerging. New life and energy. Praise God!
How can we continue to worship outside the building as well as in it? Raises lots of questions about the way we have worshipped in the last weeks.
Take a breath and reflect on these. Out of this time of change are you feeling a new level of faith?
A very Interesting read that could lead to some valuable discussion. What will ‘church’ look like at the end of this time? What are we learning? How are we growing?
It seems that someone did not like the message on the front of our Mudgee church. The "Refugees Are Welcome Here" banner has been cut down and stolen. Seems like it might have been just the right message! Prayers that God's love might soften the heart of whoever took it.
Palm Sunday. The beginning of Holy Week. We are not alone as we journey through this challenging time. As we read, reflect and pray, we can notice the small things that tell us God is with us. We can recall the strength of Jesus’ commitment to do as God asked, even when he didn’t want to. And we can hear the joyful celebrations along the streets of Jerusalem as he rode in on the donkey. Across the web today there are opportunities to wave our palms, to join the crowd and know that God is with us. Hallelujah to the King!
Good ideas for communion
Always in touch with the world!

Can we think about signalling this special day in our calendar?
