Inviting you to think about our own church community the wider church, the world!

  • We pray for our Playgroup which meets every Wednesday. We are thankful for its part within the life of our church over many years and for the way it has encouraged many parents and their children. We give thanks for Cassandra who coordinates and for our grandparents who support this group with hospitality.
  • This week we pray for Defence Force Chaplaincy and for the families grieving the loss of loved ones through the accidental deaths recently in training mishaps both in Queensland and the Northern Territory
  • This week we pray for Malawi, Zambia; for the sufficient supply of medical personnel, equipment and drugs in government hospitals and health centres.
  • Everyone is invited to share in a relaxed informal meal and time together with the Faulkners here at GUCCC at 5 pm on Saturday 24th June.
  • There would not be a card big enough to say our goodbyes! There will be a journal available in the quiet room on Sundays over the coming weeks and on the 24th June; each person/family is invited to choose a page to write a message, add an image, recount a fond memory or simply sign your name.
  • Church Council is arranging a gift for Mark and Peta-Gai on behalf of the congregation.

If there is anything you would like to discuss please contact Heather Lamb or Elizabeth Phythian who will be coordinating the food.

The Presbytery acknowledges with thanks Mark’s closure of ministry with Gungahlin Uniting Church. Along with Gungahlin we give thanks for Mark’s ten years with them – he will be missed.

Blessings to both Mark and Peta-Gai as Mark moves into his future work with the wider church. Gungahlin Congregation gives thanks also for Rev Dr Jonathan Barker’s willingness and availability to be Supply Minister from August. Please pray for their JNC (Joint Nominating Committee) as they work towards a new Minister for Gungahlin Uniting Church.

Yarnsters are raising money to help Christine and Damien purchase a Service Dog for Bethany. Christine and Damien were members of our church some years back and are the children of Penny and John Palmer. Bethany, who has many health issues, needs the dog to detect when a seizure is imminent and to be a companion for her. The dog will cost $20,000. If you would like to help Bethany get her dog please see a member of the Yarnsters, we will be sending our contribution in about 3 weeks.
