On Sunday 1st May Dave Hall concluded three years of ministry as our Children, Youth & Young Adult Pastor and 25 years in various roles with the Uniting Church including coordinating the National Christian Youth Convention and as chaplain at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar.  Dave’s ministry with Brunswick Uniting Church was significantly impacted on and shaped by the pandemic.  During the speeches after worship the words offered by our young people and others gave voice to Dave’s extraordinary creativity and commitment to pastoral care as he innovated to form new ways of engaging and supporting them through the long lockdowns and time spent apart.
