Sunday 3rd May – Online Worship: Easter 4

Greetings dear friends!

This week’s online worship is here, but it won’t be published until Sunday morning at 9am:

Thankyou to Paul and Colleen for presenting, and to Pam for her photo contributions,  a rose is featured during the Lord’s Prayer, and Pam  writes:  “This is a symbol of remembrance of the wonder of God’s creation.   (It is actually a bloom from the rose bush given to Beth [Allen] following Ken’s passing)”,

If you would like to hear the version of Psalm 23 that Paul mentioned today, you can find a beautiful recording here:

For a listening song, you might also enjoy this tune from Leigh Newton (if you haven’t already noticed, I’m becoming quite the fan!

We had our first Messy Church gathering via Zoom this week, and it was great to see the faces of our friends again after a long while!  We’re looking forward to trying out a lot of new ideas for next time.

Bible Lego Challenge

Our Presbytery is running a Great Bible Lego Challenge!

This is the way it will work…

It starts on 2 May 2020. You are invited to form a team for the Presbytery Bible Lego Challenge. Your team can be a family group or other Lego enthusiasts that you are allowed to be with.

You can have no more than 4 people in your team. There are no restrictions on number of teams per ministry context, they just need an individual name. An example could be “Team Zero from East Geelong UCA.”

Each week for 6 weeks a new Lego challenge will be issued for teams to complete – this will be posted on our Presbytery Facebook Page each Sunday – Regenerating the Church – Port Phillip West Presbytery.

A full copy of the rules is available on our Facebook page or you can download it here:

Presbytery of Port Phillip West LEGO Challenge

There will be prizes… so come aboard and join the fun!

Presbytery has also begun producing a regular newsletter – you can find a copy here:

PPPW Newsletter 30 April 2020

The Synod is also sending out more frequent e-news updates – here’s the latest one

Last year, our family watched this story on ABC’s Compass about a Minister in Surrey Hills trying out new ways of being in community, and of ministry.  It got us thinking about different ways of ministry for St Luke’s, too.

Take care this week, friends – and don’t forget to send us your photos and contributions for online worship – we’d love to see photos of you “attending” church these days!  Or perhaps you have some favourite photos or videos of Geelong or of the St Luke’s community you’d like to share.
