Some years we find it hard to feel cheerful or festive at Christmas.
It may be a time of sadness and loss. It may be a time of worry. It may be a time of loneliness. It may be a time of stress. Perhaps for you it may be the worst, not the best of times.
If this is true for you, you are invited to a ‘Blue Christmas’ service at Gungahlin Uniting Church Sunday evening 23 December at 6.00 pm. It will be a time for quiet reflection, community and listening to music as we remember that Jesus came into our world as God-with-us.
Over Christmas and January, if you are able to come down at a time that suits you and do some hand watering in the food garden that would be very much appreciated.
Please talk with Darren if you are interested in helping out in this way.
This week we celebrate the baptism of Ruby Tyson with her parents,
William and Hannah and their family and friends.
We welcome you to this community and hope that your time with us is a blessed experience.
“Being baptised is simply a naming, an acknowledgement of someone’s existing belovedness” – Rachel Held Evans
Today we celebrate that we are each a beloved child of God.
