Information Session on In Home Care

Following the Residential Aged Care forum we held at the church last October, our Mission Group arranged to host a second forum on In-Home Care on Sunday 28th April, from 2 – 4 pm.

Nathanial Levett and Nina Attree, Relationship Managers at Prestige In-Home Care, based in Reserve Road, Cheltenham, spoke to a group of about 22. It was a very informative session and Nat and Nina answered lots of questions from the very interested audience, who felt they gained a lot of helpful advice.

Good Friday Walk of Witness

Following our Good Friday service of meditation and reflection many of our congregation joined the Combined Churches of Beaumaris for the Walk of Witness. This is an event in which we have participated for over 30 years and is an opportunity to witness our faith with all the other Beaumaris Churches. St Martins hosted the fourth and fifth stations. Morning tea of hot cross buns and a cuppa followed the final station at St Michael’s.

Palm Sunday Choral Service

Palm Sunday

The Passion Of Jesus in Word and Song was the theme for the Palm Sunday Service. The choir had prepared for this service over 3 evening rehearsals with a final polish on the morning of the service. We would like to express our thanks to the choir for their hard work in creating this uplifting experience for us. Our special thanks go to Geoff Hinde for his patient and thoughtful leadership, to those family and friends who have augmented the choir and to Luke Drohan – our pianist for rehearsal and performance, as well as to all the readers. We all enjoyed the morning tea afterwards.

PANCAKE NIGHT 2019

Panacake Day at Beaumaris Uniting Church 2019

Pancake night at the Beaumaris Uniting Church – St. Martins was held on Sunday 3rd March from 5 – 8pm.  In spite of the high 30 degree temperatures we had a healthy gathering of people. Some people enjoyed a picnic tea of fish and chips but everyone enjoyed the pancakes served as dessert with a range of fruit toppings and ice-cream plus a wide choice of drinks.  All age groups enjoyed playing quoits on the lawn and as the cool change arrived many of the participants moved outside to sit and enjoy the live music.  It was a great opportunity for chatting and catching up on peoples’ news at leisure. We were delighted to be joined by our friends from St Michael’s and All Angels down the road on this festive occasion. We are thrilled that the $370 raised will be donated to Uniting Care Families in Crisis.

Service of Carols and Readings 2018

Our Annual Special Christmas Music Service

The service of Carols and Readings held on Sunday 16th December 2018 was several months in the planning. First came the task of choosing carols and readings and then over the month leading up to the service there were intensive weekly practices.

Our service was based on the the Christmas Eve “Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” introduced at King’s College, Cambridge in 1918. Whilst not all the readings from King’s have been used, ours were selected from them and from those used in the Advent Carol Services at King’s, John’s and Trinity Colleges. In choosing we have sought to create a dialogue between the carols in the service. Our thanks go to all the readers and singers, particularly the friends and family from outside the congregation who have augmented The St Martins Singers.

Our choir of 20 sang in full voice and the performance was followed keenly by the congregation and enjoyed immensely.

A special thank you to Geoff Hinde for his patient and inspiring leadership of our music and to Rosa Hwang our accompanist.

Church Christmas Dinner 2018

On Friday 7th December approximately 40 members of the Church Congregation met at the Church Hall for a wonderful gathering of fellowship, friendship and fine food. It was extra pleasing to see some old faces join us for the evening.

All families contributed salads and desserts to enjoy along with the barbecued chickens, chips and quiches on offer.

A wonderful array of desserts tempted the palates and wastelines of those enjoying the evening.

Singing of Christmas carols with Geoff Hinde conducting and our wonderful pianist Janette Barklamb enthusiastically leading the group.

Many thanks to Wendy Hinde for her hard work organising this much loved annual event on the church calendar and we look forward to a repeat next year.
