Ps Richard Moors will be running a workshop working through the context of the Gospel, with historical context. This is a chance for us to learn more about the gospel. Those who explored Luke with me last year found it very interesting.
Join together as one congregation, in multiple places to share together in worship. Hosted at www.livestream.com/ggservices/ssuc each Sunday at 9:00 am.
A time to hold space and pray for those who are affected by domestic violence
Come along and find a bargain or two including: books, home baking, vintage, retro, plants, furniture, bric a brac and clothing. There will be Devonshire teas, with homemade scones, and a sausage sizzle BBQ.
Once you have come to one of our garage sales, you won't want to miss the next!
Due to concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 to our most vulnerable members, it has been discerned that this event would be cancelled.
“ Should we believe in Climate Change? ”
Speaker: Professor Darryl Jones
For some people, the topic of climate change is not simply a scientific reality but a belief system akin to a religion. Or is science also a form of religion requiring faith? Given recent events in Australia, this might be worth exploring without getting too philosophical. Maybe we will need to learn how to ride a camel...
Darryl Jones is a professor at Griffith University where he has been working for more than 30 years. He is primarily an ecologist who studies how wildlife lives in cities but he is also interested in the many ways that humans interact with and perceive nature. This includes big complex topics like who we connect with nature and why climate change is so controversial.
Darryl is also a member of Southside Uniting Church at Tarragindi Community.
As the four communities of Holland Park, Mt Gravatt, Tarragindi and Yeronga have come together as SSUC, we are acknowledging this with a Rebirthing Service where we will worship together as One Congregation for the first time. This Service will include the inauguration of the new Congregation - Southside Uniting Church, by the Presbytery of South Moreton and will involve participation from our Ministry Agents and members of our worshipping communities. Following the Rebirthing Service, our first Congregational Meeting will be held for Members and Members in Association.
We live in a world that is complex, diverse and changing rapidly. God’s people find themselves grappling with a missional context that has not been experienced before. It is an environment that we don’t completely understand, we are not trained for or have much experience in.
The reality is that for the vast majority of Australians, the local church is invisible or viewed as irrelevant. For those of us who are part of Southside, we know (either consciously or unconsciously) that something has got to change if we are going to faithfully communicate the gospel to the world around us.
By coming together as Southside we have committed ourselves to being open to change. But the question remains, what changes are needed so that we may show the relevance of the gospel in the neighbourhoods that we live?
This is a big challenge that faces us today and so we echo the cry of the psalmist: “How will we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”
The big question for us today is how we can embrace a new beginning in God’s mission in our local neighbourhood in 2020 and beyond.
Southside Uniting Church was born from a desire to engage in God’s missional future. This workshop will start us on our renewed journey. Further workshops are planned. We will also be seeking expressions of interest from people willing to form small groups to discover what God is doing by listening, learning, planning and acting.
So look forward to what is yet to come!!!
