Ordination of Yoo Mi Park
The Ordination of Yoo Mi Park will take place on Friday 19th February, 7:30pm at Brunswick UC. We are so delighted to be hosting this special event for Yoo Mi.

Allyship and Anti-Racism
Come along to our Allyship and Anti-Racism training in February! Love Makes A Way and BUC would like to invite you to attend our upcoming anti-racism/allyship training hosted by Democracy in Colour (please see attached for details). This training is made up of two sessions (both of which must be attended), which will occur on the following dates via Zoom: – Saturday 20th February from 1:30pm, Thursday 25th February from 6pm, This is a valuable opportunity for us to develop our understanding of racism, to feel better equipped to tackle racial injustice in our personal lives, and to look at practical ways in which we as a community can ingrain active anti-racism/racial justice into our cultures and structures. Book here (note that this one booking covers both sessions):
Please note that this is a self-funded endeavour and therefore includes a paid ticket, but also that we have included multiple pricing options (including $0) to accommodate all financial situations. Please choose whichever option feels most appropriate for you. And finally – I’m sure this goes without saying, however, to ensure the integrity of learning and safety in the space we have been asked to convey that the first workshop (‘101’) is a prerequisite to the second workshop, and to encourage all people to enter with an open mind keen for learning, regardless of past training/experience. Numbers are limited, so book quickly to secure a place! Feel free to get in touch with Abi (email@example.com) if you have any questions, and we hope to see you there!
“Walking Together” Facebook group – open invitation
Please visit, and consider joining, the BUC “Walking Together” Facebook group. (As in “Walking together as First and Second Peoples”, from the UCA Vic-Tas mission statement.)
You don’t need to be a member of the group that meets under the same name in order to join the FB group. The purpose of the FB group is to widen the circle of conversation & reflection, and to be an ongoing forum for news, announcements and insights that are relevant to our discipleship alongside Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples.
See you there! https://www.facebook.com/groups/304899744273955
