Saturday 22 May from 10am – our friends at St Nic’s Anglican Church in Sawtell are hosting a Biggest Morning Tea to help raise funds for cancer research, with entry being by way of donation. Why not get a group of friends together for chat and relaxation over a cuppa and cake? A very worthy cause and also a chance to support our Anglican brothers and sisters.

Sunday 23rd -  Church Service (Lay leader) - 9am  + Holy Communion + morning tea or coffee after.   

Sunday 23 May at 7.30pm - There will be a special church service. The NSW Synod of the church is exploring the theme “Where the Wild God is” throughout this year. This theme will help us to look to new ways of celebrating being the church and living out our faith in a new way, and will encourage us to refuse to allow the covid events of 2020 to define us as a church. It will also encourage us to see that God is still active and working in the world “out there”.

The service will be led by the NSW moderator of the church and will be live streamed from the Sydney Cheil Uniting Church. The theme of the service is “The Possibilities of the Wilderness”.

It is of course possible for you to tune in to the service on your own computer at home at facebook.com/unitingchurchnswact or nswact.uca.org.au/live. However..........we also plan to tune in at our church building so that it can be watched on the big screen, and it would be a good opportunity to join as a group in worship there.

Friday 28th  - Night on the Town - tba

Sunday 30th - No service at Sawtell - You are invited to a Combined Service with Coffs Harbour congregation, at the Botanic Gardens at 9am.

NB: Should you not be able to come to our services, you can find a streamed or recorded worship service from across NSW and ACT
