Church Council has prepared a draft Mission Plan for 2019-22 which is built upon the mission priorities identified in our 2017 Church Profile. It reflects on our values, congregational life and community activities and will help to guide our priorities for the future. The Mission Plan will be put to the AGM in November for endorsement by the congregation.
Comments and suggestions on this draft Mission Plan should be given to our Chairperson, Chris Dodd by 30 September 2018 so that the final plan can be ready for inclusion in the AGM papers.
The Annual General Meeting for Gungahlin Uniting Church will take place after worship on Sunday 4th November 2018. This year we are electing up to seven new members for Church Council. It is up to everyone in the congregation to discern who you would like to nominate for Church Council.
Please read the information on the nomination forms and return your forms into the pink box in the church foyer by Sunday 14th October.
As you are no doubt aware, the ACT now has a Container Refund Scheme. Brigades are very happy to return eligible containers on your behalf. You can place them in a box that will be placed in the foyer, or give them directly to Bruce, Liz or Carrie.
Boys’ Brigade will use their part of the returns to help pay for the older boys to attend National Camps and Leadership Courses. Girls’ Brigade will put theirs towards paying the significantly increased rent at the Salvation Army.
