The theme for Refugee Week 2021 is Unity. The theme raises awareness of the issues affecting refugees and seeks to promote harmony and togetherness, providing a common, cohesive message which can be promoted across the country, helping to maximise the effectiveness of awareness-raising activities. See the Refugee Week webpage for more information. We will be focussing on the theme of Unity during worship on Sunday 20th June.
A service will be offered for Una Trigg on Sunday 27th June, 1pm at Brunswick UC. Una died on Tuesday, 22nd September 2020. Her family held a private ceremony on Monday, 28th September. We look forward to sharing this time of remembering with Wesley, Stephanie, Fiona, Jocelyn and their families. Please be aware that numbers may be limited and this service will be live-streamed from the BUC YouTube channel.

Planning is underway for our “Eco-theology Conversations series”
The series will be led by Graeme Garrett and Jan Morgan. The style will be conversational and include journaling, spiritual practice, and a blog for participants to follow up at home. Input will draw on theology, biblical stories, literature, music, art etc. (but not lengthy ‘lectures’).
There will be 7 sessions over a 14 week period, starting in late July.
