This Sunday, we’ll be marking the handover of Hurley House to Uniting Disability with a special service.
Established in 1994, Hurley House has been the home for five young adults with intellectual disabilities, with the aim of living independently in a supported accommodation program.
With changes in regulations and the introduction of the NDIS, we believe that now is the time to hand over the running of this house to Uniting Disability. Of course, we are not cutting our ties – we will continue to be involved on a advisory group, and, after all, Uniting Disability’s regional office is on our sight.
In the period after Pentecost, we start following the careers of Samuel, Saul and David. The first Sunday of the month is a Communion service. Services start at 9.00am
Spurred to action by the recent War on Waste program on the ABC, eight of us got together on 28th June to talk about why we are interested in our responsibility for the environment as Christians and as concerned individuals. We know that we reflect a wider concern within our congregation. Our church life profile from the recent survey tells us that there is not one of us who thinks that, as Christians, we do not have a responsibility to care for the environment. While 74% of us said we are active, 26% said that they were not.
Our conversation was wide ranging and lively. We have so many ideas. Each of us has taken away one thing to research for the next meeting. The aim is to help each member of the congregation find ways that we can act to lessen the impact our lifestyle has on the environment. We will also be looking at ways that Campbelltown Uniting can take steps to recycle and make well informed purchases.
