Advent and Christmas Services

Each Sunday in Advent, we’ll open a new panel in the Advent doors, we’ll hear from someone how Christmas used to be for them, and we’ll explore the theme. I’ll be asking for carol suggestions, particularly for the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. So if you hae a favourite carol that you haven’t sung for a while, suggest it!

Sunday 3rd December – 9.00am the first Sunday in Advent: Hope (and we’ll celebrate communion)

Sunday 10th December – 9.00am second Sunday in Advent: Peace

Sunday 17th December– 9.00am third Sunday in Advent: Joy

Christmas Eve – Sunday 24th December  – 9.00am fourth Sunday in Advent: Love

6.00pm BBQ for all / 7.00pm carols

11.30pm Reflections in the Chapel

Christmas Day – celebration service at 9.00am

Sunday 31st – reflective service at the end of a year

 

Sustainability Action Group

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.

What’s next? Look out for weekly tips in the newsletter.
