Easter! More than hot-cross buns!

It was just a few days after Christmas when the major supermarkets in Australia stocked their shelves with Good Friday’s hot-cross buns. They do it every year in spite of howls of protests from the general public. Of course, for the retail sector Easter is simply another marketing opportunity and clearly, the product sells, so for all those who protest many more don’t share their concern. The significance of the Christian seasons is of little interest to the likes of…

Christmas celebrations at Mudgeeraba Uniting

You’re invited to be our guests as celebrate the wonder of Christmas at Mudgeeraba Uniting Church. Our Christmas Eve service at 6.30 pm and our Christmas morning service at 8.00 am feature many of the much-loved carols. While it is tempting to introduce contemporary Christmas songs we know that many people who attend worship at Christmas appreciate the traditional carols. Of course, we also hear the story of the first Christmas as recorded in the Gospels.

Mudgeeraba’s Community Carols

Mudgeeraba’s Community Carols are just around the corner, taking place at Firth Park on Sunday November 25th from 4.30 pm. Our church is heavily involved in the planning and running of this event along with C3 Church. Our local school chappies host the first part of the program featuring choirs from state schools in the area. There will also be a combined schools orchestra featuring over a hundred children. It is expected that Santa will also make a guest appearance.…

Messages

Fruitless fig trees and grace

In today’s message we consider the words of Jesus in Luke 13: 1-9. At first it seems a harsh message of judgement but as we see there is grace offered.

Standing firm- no turning back

In this message we look at the incident recorded in Luke 13: 31-35, where Jesus is encouraged by some Pharisees to ‘get out of town’ because Herod apparently wanted to kill him. But Jesus stood firm, resolute, determined to do what he was ordained to do. What about us?

The first temptation of Christ

In this message we look at the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, as it is recorded in Luke 4: 1-13. We consider how Jesus withstood the onslaught from the devil and are encouraged to apply the same principles when we are faced with the temptation to live a life other than the one the Lord has willed for us. The Youtube clip referred to in this message can be found here. The reference to the ACT decision to axe…

Holy Presence

This week’s message is about intimacy with God…those moments when we experience the presence of God in profound ways. The Gospel text is Luke 9: 28-36, the story of the Transfiguration of Jesus.
