Sunday 7 June (11am)

Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching – ‘Some Things Are Harder To Say’

This is a sermon about the courage it takes for us all to speak truthfully to one another about what is in our hearts and on our minds.  This is a sermon about those moments when we hesitate to give words to our thoughts and feelings, either because we are afraid or because we are not prepared or because we hesitate and hold back for lack of confidence.  Come join us this morning!

 

Sunday 7 June (7pm)

Evening Gathering – ‘Music, words, reflection and silence’

Come and join us for meditative music, thought provoking words, followed by silence & reflection. Led by Margaret Perry & Ingrid Tavkar

Children’s ProgrammeThis week, the children will continue to explore some of the smaller creatures which share our planet, looking at and thinking about earthworms. We continue to focus on our seventh principle of respect for our planet and the interdependent web of all life. 

 

The final Children’s Chapel before the summer break will be 21st June.  During the summer months there will be a box of (quiet) toys and activities available for children to enjoy during the main service.  The Children’s Chapel and crèche program will begin again in September. 

Flowers Dedicated this Sunday ‘The flowers on this Sunday, Canadian Women’s Day, are sponsored by Tanya Morrison, in memory of her Mother.’

COFFEE & TEA MONEY during June will be donated to

ALL OUT! – LOVE. EQUALITY. ACTION!’

and our Sunday collection basket will also be divided with  

ALL OUT! – LOVE. EQUALITY. ACTION!’

 

WHAT IS ALL OUT?

In 76 countries it’s a crime to be gay. All Out is changing laws and shifting cultural norms to build a world where no person has to sacrifice their family, freedom, safety or dignity because of who they are or who they love. (https://allout.org/about-en)

‘All religions are true.  All religions have some error’
