Leaders’ Retreat 2021
Are you a leader at BUC – a committee member, roster volunteer, SMP teacher, a leader of any kind or are you interested in leadership? There are many of us! And it’s great to get together at the start of the year to reflect on where we are and where we might be heading.   The 2021 Leaders’ Retreat ‘all leaders session’ will be on Saturday 6th February, 2-4:45pm at BUC.

Microphone training
Where do I stand?  How close do I need to be?  Should I move the microphone?  All these questions and more will be answered during Notices on Sunday 7th February.  Shawn Whelan will demonstrate what to do and what not to do.  You can also have your own personal training session after worship.

BUC Student House – rooms available
There are two vacancies in our student house program.  Please pass this news on to any young people attending tertiary studies in 2021.

Meditation is a way of paying attention, and taking the focus away from ourselves and our internal ‘chatter’ and distractions. It can become a practice which can mirror our whole life and give us the freedom to live life in its fullness.
The group is continuing to meet via a WhatsApp group on Tuesday and Thursday at 9 am.  Contact Richard Arnold on 0407796429 to join the WhatsApp group.
