In Lectio divina this Sunday night, we look at the ways that Jesus shows up in the small things that we often forget to look for. Luke 21:25-33 will be our inspiration for reflection.

  • masks will be compulsory

  • tea, coffee and other food will not be allowed at this time

  • physical distancing and capacity limits will be closely monitored and maintained at all times

Saturday December 11, 6pm – ‘Local Stories Live!’
SSH online concert & fundraiser 

The SSH fundraiser concert on December 11 at 6pm is shaping up to be a great evening. Please come! We have lined up Toby Martin (new album I Felt the Valley Lifting) and Boy Torch (folk-country duo) to perform. Congregation member Matthew Westwood will do a brief interview with Toby on the night. Join via Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87600284013?pwd=SjZMRFFOSkk5ZXdUT251eTI0VnlzQT09

 

The SSH working group is excited about its grant proposal for an Indigenous internship with the South Sydney Herald. A grant would help us give an aspiring Indigenous person 18 + – who may have no chance of affording tertiary study – a paid, 12-week, “mini cadetship” with the paper.

 

We are thankful for all our contributors (distributors, writers, editors, photographers, illustrators) whose work makes the paper such a valued resource. This reputation pays it forward: people donate their services, creativity, skills and money on the strength of this regard.

Share God's love through Christmas Bowl by giving a gift through your church.

In the Christmas story we see God choosing to become our neighbour by taking on human flesh. This is an act of love from God that draws us into the story of God’s love for all creation and invites us to be witnesses to God’s love through our loving action in the world.

The Christmas Bowl provides us with a practical way to show love for our neighbours most in need. Your gift to the Christmas Bowl will remind our neighbours around the world that they are not forgotten, that they are loved and that we are all part of God’s love. As we celebrate Christmas, may our love for our neighbour grow.

SHARE THE LOVE!

 

Everything in Common Advocates tell stories and promote gifts of education, clean water, goats, health supplies...

If your church is meeting physically during November and December, we can give you everything you need to hold a simple stall to sell the gift cards (see below). If you're still online, we can help you out with that too. We've got an inspiring online training session and easy resources to download to share with your congregation, family and friends.

The only thing we need from you is your willingness to share the love!

 

Interested to know more? Let's get the word out together and be part of the good news our world needs this Christmas!

What has Christ got to do with COP 26?

 

Wednesdays: 7:30-8:30 pm online: 1st  December

 

The purpose of this 4 part presentation is to explore how our understanding of Christ engages with the ‘superwicked problem’ of climate change and the arrival of the Anthropocene. It will weave together current insights from the life of faith {via the Bible, theology), the Earth System scientists, Australian writers and IPCC reports. There will be links to resources for those who wish to delve more deeply

This series will be led by members of the Centre.
