Weekly Notices 12 Jan ’14
Sunday Service Sunday 12th January at 11am & 7pm
Dr. O’Neill’s sermon is, “Science and Religion: On the Meeting of Minds and Souls”
Historically science and religion have alternated between mutual support and bitter enmity….faith and reason parted ways when scientific research began to challenge church dogma. The polite way to reconcile science and theology was simply to agree that each would keep to its own realm; science would ask and answer empirical questions like what and how; religion would confront the spiritual, wondering why.
This Sunday we shall be considering a new approach to New Year resolutions…
Flowers Dedicated this Sunday – The flowers this Sunday are sponsored by Kristy Howell and dedicated to the Children of the Chapel. Kristy hope’s you like the magical woodland scene that she has created with Patricia.

Dr. O’Neill’s sermon is, “The Way It’s Supposed to Work, and How It Really Works”
Much of life, it turns out – much more of life than anyone would guess – is about navigating the transitions in life, coping and adjusting to the changes of age, of status, of work and vocation, of relationships and family and health. A sermon this morning reflecting on the way of transitions in our lives. Come join us for worship today…and bring a friend along.
