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..
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.
Bring a Plate to Share Morning Tea
On the first Sunday of August & September you are invited to Bring a Plate to Share for morning tea. This will both help to ease the pressure on our regular morning tea providers with a few taking a break and give us all an opportunity to share our favourite treats in a low stress kind of way. The Morning Tea Helpers will arrive just that bit earlier to help set things up ready. Please bring your plate to the kitchen before worship on Sunday 4th August.
