A Celebration of Ministry service was held at Adelaide West Uniting Church on Sunday the 21st August and was a fitting tribute to Ministers and Lay-Pastors alike who were celebrating special anniversaries of their ministry, or entering retirement.

The service was conducted by Acting Moderator Rev Sue Ellis and Interim General Secretary Rev Phillip Gardner, with Rev Lynne Aird providing a thought-provoking Homily on the idea of ‘a cloud of witnesses,’ alongside Nola Gibbons and Liz Dyson who provided the accompanying music for the service.

Ministers and Lay-Preachers received a certificate acknowledging and celebrating their years in ministry, whilst retiring ministers autographed the Uniting Church logo photo image as a remembrance of the impact of their ministry on the wider church.

The event was not only a tribute to those who have served the church, but also an opportunity for gathering in community to show our appreciation for all those involved in ministry and a chance to spend time together.
