We gather for worship for our morning service on Sunday 23rd May to celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. Later in the day we gather again with our ecumenical neighbours at 5pm at the Brunswick Baptist Church. The theme, “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17 and expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the church and the human family. Visit the Ecumenical Service event for more information.

BUC’s Walking Together Group is organising an opportunity to walk the Fitzroy Aboriginal Heritage Trail on Sunday May 23rd. We’ll meet at 11.30am at the Moreton Bay Fig Tree in the Exhibition Gardens directly adjacent to the intersection of Gertrude and Nicholson Streets. (The tree is marked on Google Maps.) The official brochure and map for the walk (available here) says this: “Fitzroy not only became the largest Aboriginal community in Victoria, it also became the social and political hub of Aboriginal Melbourne.” The full walk takes about two hours. If you’ve done this walk before or not, consider coming along and engage some of this important history. More details will be available in coming weeks. RSVP: Geoff Thompson: firstname.lastname@example.org
