On Epiphany 3B, 24th January we welcomed Rev. Carlynne Nunn, former member of our congregation as our preacher.

Responding to Jesus call to the fishermen in Mark’s gospel we reflected on on love, community and evangelism.  As we reflected on community we rejoiced in the recent release of refugees from places of detention.

Acknowledging the request to observe a Day of Mourning on the Sunday before Australia Day we paused briefly to remember the violence and dispossession inflicted on our First Peoples.  We offered the Acknowledgement of Country from the UCA Assembly and UAICC resources.  Our worship service for 31st January, Aboriginal Sunday, is being prepared by the Walking Together group using resources prepared by Common Grace.

How do we respond to January 26 this year?
For many First Nations Peoples this is a time of grief.  This is not a political issue, it is a personal one.

  • We invite you to attend the #ChangeTheHeart Service on Monday, 25 January 2021 7:30 pm BUC will gather together to pray, on line and in unison, with one of Australia’s most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, Aunty Jean Phillips,  on the evening before January 26.  Watch the video for more information and for details of how to join in https://www.commongrace.org.au/tunein

Brunswick Uniting Church believes in freedom, justice and equality for all people.

Responding to the recently release release of refugees from places of detention the Justice & Mission committee has prepared a statement.  We invite you to visit and share this post on our website.
