Happy 1st Birthday Seeds

Seeds Kurralta Park, a thriving church plant of Seeds Uniting Church in Aberfoyle Park, has had an incredible year since its establishment in February 2023. As the community came together to celebrate its first birthday on 11th February 2024, they spent time reflecting on the goodness of God over the last year.


Reflection of the Week - 5th March 2024

God sent Jesus to make free persons of us. He has chosen compassion as the way to freedom. That is a great deal more radical than you might at first imagine. It means that God wanted to liberate us, not by removing suffering from us, but by sharing it with us.


Bush Chaplain Sunny

Bush Chaplain Sunny has a big job. His patrol area of Parkin-Sturt in South Australia includes 49 towns, around 170 farming stations, and multiple mines. But while his job may be big, he says it’s the small things that make a difference.


Reflection of the Week - 20th February 2024

A down and then up perspective doesn’t fit into our Western philosophy of progress, nor into our desire for upward mobility, nor into our religious notions of perfection or holiness.


Reflection of the Week - 6th February 2024

Esther followed God’s direction. Patiently waiting for the right moment, God opened the King’s heart to her plight which resulted in his favour bestowed upon Esther, Mordecai, and the Jewish people. She was willing to risk her life for others and for what God called her to do. I’m not saying we need to do this but I am saying we must be willing to do the hard stuff if God calls us to it.


Reflection of the Week - 30th January 2024

Jesus begins His public ministry immediately after being tempted by the devil while in the desert for forty days. As He begins His ministry, He declares: ‘This is the time of fulfillment.’


How do Human Rights shape a Just Society?

Every person has the right to education (Article 26 - Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948), but not everyone gets it. In fact, some congregations that support school breakfast programs know all too well that children going to school without breakfast can fall behind their peers because of their inability to maintain attention and focus.


Flipping for a Cause - Pancake Day 2024

Each month more and more are attending Emergency Relief Centres as they struggle to put food on the table. You can help by hosting your own Pancake Day event either on Shrove Tuesday or on any other day before the 31st May 2024


Reflection of the Week - 23rd January 2024

At times we experience life as difficult. Our spiritual life may appear to be dry or overwhelming. Our sins may seem to be too much to overcome. And our relationship with God may appear to be too difficult to foster.
