Worship Workshop Series
Sensory Worship – Workshop 3 is an experiential workshop exploring the way our senses bring us closer to God in worship. What do you notice in your body when you worship? Which senses are most engaged? Come and play and learn together on Thursday 18th July. Brunswick Uniting Church (212 Sydney Rd.), 7:30-9:00pm with supper to follow.
We will celebrate the baptism of Joshua Whitty, son of Steph Gesling & Matt Whitty during worship on Sunday 21st July.

With Love to the World Coordinator
Are you enjoying using With Love to the World as part of your routine Bible reading?
Interested in getting more involved in the life of the congregation?
Perhaps being the coordinator and contact person for With Love to the World is the right thing for you. Faye Findlay is stepping down after her time in this role and we are looking for a new coordinator. The task involves Promoting the magazine, ordering it quarterly and distributing the copies when they arrive. Faye has prepared a detailed task list for the next person, so handover should be straight forward. Talk to Meg Orton or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
August Olive Branch
Please email your stories, reports, news and any other contributions to email@example.com by Monday 22nd July. Thank you.
Julian Hamilton visit
Our favourite Irish Methodist Chaplain at Trinity College Dublin, Julian (Jools) Hamilton will be the guest preacher at Brunswick Uniting on Sunday 4th August. We are hoping to have a lunch after church for young adults (18 to 35), where Jools can share a bit more of his wisdom about faith, life, the Bible and all things good.
