on-line Worship services

We are still not able to worship in our building, but we are still able to worship! Each Sunday a service will be streamed on our Facebook page ( You’ll need to have a Facebook account, and like or follow us to be able to get it.

Most of the services will be on Zoom, and links will be emailed on our e-group if you want to participate. If you aren’t on the e-group then please email me and ask…


One of the outcomes of the closing of Campbelltown Uniting Church until further notice is that those people who usually bring their offerings to church each Sunday can no longer do so and this will obviously impact on our finances.You can however contribute by direct debit. Details below.

Church Services Suspended

It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that, following the strong urging of Synod, we have decided to suspend all services in our church. This also means the suspension of all other church activities in our building. I don’t know how long this will be for.

I, together with the Church Council and pastoral carers, will be looking at ways of fostering social contact so that social distancing does not become complete isolation. We will be looking at ways within the congregation to maintain fellowship and mutual support.

So, at the very least, there will be much more activity on the email list and on the Facebook page.

And, please hold these words in your hearts:

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-9)

What we do ecologically

A couple of years ago, prompted by the War on Waste program on the ABC, some of us got together 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.
