Making Reconciliation Real

Reconciliation with Aboriginal people is something that everyone can share.

Join in an evening with Bob Slockee from Australians Together and people from parishes from across northern Canberra to talk about ways in which we can make reconciliation real where we live.

The evening will be led by the Public Issues Commission and held in the worship centre at Holy Covenant Jamieson on Thursday 14th September from 7.30pm.

Thank you to all who have contributed to Bob’s support in the last few weeks.


To mark 90th anniversary of the founding of the RSCM will be held on 10th September 2017 at 3pm at Wesley Uniting Church, National Circuit, Forrest.


The Spring issue of Community is now available. Copies will be distributed at services and a colour electronic copy is available on the parish website. The issue includes extensive coverage of Easter services and the ordination of the Rev’d Kelvin Harris.

The Editor appreciates the excellent response to requests for contributions to this issue.

St Paul’s Fête

St Paul’s Fete is on Saturday 4th November.

See Rod King (mob 0411093887) about stalls and preparing jams, garden plants, craft items, etc.

In particular we need back-up help for Rod who will be away mid September to late October.

Bible studies

Tuesday at 9:30am-10:30am and 6:30pm-7:30pm.

The study is on the lectionary readings for the coming Sunday.

Please contact Kelvin if you would like to join one of the groups or if you have any queries.

Sidespeople for 10am

We need two people to assist with sidespeople duties on the fifth Sunday of the month.

This happens only four times a year.

If you are willing to assist in this way please contact the office.

Trading Table

Thanks to your very generous support, we raised $893.60 last Sunday.

Many wonderful cooks donated their time and skills and the items made by talented knitters and sewers were also very well received.

The funds raised will go towards after school tuition for refugee and migrant children.
