We were gifted a beautiful day for the fete and a large number of people participated. It was all a great occasion of fellowship and was a great success.
The church grounds were buzzing with activity and it was deemed to be an exceptional event in the life of the church.

CELEBRATING PENTECOST

Pentecost Sunday 4th June 2017

Rev. John Connan and his wife Anne helped us celebrate the manifestation of the Holy Spirit through wind and fire with an inspired service.
One of the highlights was the play “Touched With Fire” – a drama with some very ordinary people, who sound like some people in our church. As the drama unfolded we could see that our central mission is to be people engaged in God’s mission turned outwards,  in a deep transforming faith that flows in to outreach. A pertinent message delivered in a simple way that enabled us all to laugh at ourselves.

VISIT TO THE NEW PETER MAC CANCER INSTITUTE

Friday Morning Group Visit to Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute on 2nd June

A group of 8 ladies headed in to Parkville by train and tram to explore the wonder of the architecture and interior design of the new Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute (opened in June 2016).  The triangular corner block has been used to its maximum potential to house this amazing hospital and cancer research institute. A registered art gallery, the new Peter Mac Centre displays a range of art works on every wall of the atriums to provide a marvelous atmosphere for those waiting on specialist care. The principal artwork is the magnificent five-metre wide tapestry, “Life Burst” by John Olson. This vibrant tapestry was woven by five talented weavers over 1,200 hours at the ATW in South Melbourne, Life Burst comprises warm and bright hues of orange, yellow and red; with touches of green and purple. The interior is designed in such a way that every room in the building has a window and light is the main thing that bursts from every where. There are two cafes, one on the ground floor and another on the 7th floor which opens to a roof top garden as well as a walk way connecting to the Royal Melbourne Hospital across the road. We enjoyed a plentiful, well presented lunch at the 7th floor cafe after taking in the views of Melbourne and the hospital and university precinct from the outdoor garden. This is a unique hospital and research institiute and one Melbourne can be extremely privileged to call our own. Definitely worth a visit!

PALM SUNDAY – April 9th

Our Palm Sunday service on 9th April was full of joy and an abundance of plants flanking the palms. The choral service sung by the choir to celebrate the last week of Christ’s life was sung with passion as we celebrated the start of Holy Week.
