Winter Gathering @ St Andrew's Uniting Church
Jul 30 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Winter Gathering @ St Andrew's Uniting Church


Join us as we gather to explore “Winter” in our lives. Where is God when times are bleak and lonely, when people are suffering and it seems that hope is gone?

Who is God calling us to be? How do we bring warmth and light when winter nights are long and dark?

And: Who wants to be part of a new Faith Community in the Uniting Church?

Warming food to share
Open hearts

Spring Gathering – Saturday evening Dinner and Ceilidh @ Riddell's Creek Uniting Church

A Ceilidh is a social event with Scottish or Irish folk music and singing, traditional dancing, and storytelling.  Last time we gathered we discovered that many of us have an Anglo Celtic heritage in common… so we’re having a Ceilidh – family camp style!   Be ready with your stories, jokes and songs to share.

We’ll kick off the evening with a shared meal – possibly from the local takeaway options nearby and/or a combination of self-catering – we’ll work it out according to who’s around.

Being in the Macedon Ranges, we have the opportunity to invite local musician Andy Rigby to help facilitate our session and show us a dance or two, depending on how many people RSVP for the session – hence a small cost of $20 per family or thereabouts.

Spring Gathering – Sunday Morning Worship at Gisborne UC @ Gisborne Uniting Church
Oct 22 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

The third and final option in this Gathering buffet is to join the lovely people of the Macedon Ranges Partnership in their all-ages worship service at Gisborne Uniting Church, led by Pastor Annette Buckley.

Annette has been known to play ukulele at times.  Just so you know.

The service will include communion and we are excited to tell you that Annette has completed a gluten-free bread baking course and plans to make this bread available for all you gluten intolerant types out there!

The Macedon Ranges Partnership is “home church” for Robyn, Ruby, Emily and Izzy Zumstein, and it’s leaders include Pastor Annette, Rev. Deacon Wendy Elson, and Rev. Peter Cannon.  They are looking forward to hosting you on their home turf!

Sacred Edge Festival @ Queenscliff Uniting Church
May 4 @ 7:00 pm – May 6 @ 4:00 pm
Sacred Edge Festival @ Queenscliff Uniting Church | Queenscliff | Victoria | Australia

The Sacred Edge Festival is the next logical place for our community to gather!  Presenters include our very own Joan, Alex, Cath and Joel, and Robyn, and volunteering opportunities are available.  Queenscliff is a beautiful little town and Sacred Edge is a chance to hear from the voices not often heard in our churches.
