Playgroup Coordinator

What was it like Mary?

What was it like Mary, to see your boy, your precious boy hanging on that cross, shamed and dying? You knew it from the beginning didn’t you, that your boy was different, set apart? The angel had told you so, but did you really expect it to end like this, you who bore him in your womb, you who cradled and cuddled him and nursed him at your breast; you who taught him and trained him, guided and disciplined him?…

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.

Messages

An introduction to Colossians

In today’s message, the first in a mini-series ‘Ancient texts – modern application’ reading Paul’s letter to the Colossians, Leo Newell introduces the series and unpacks Colossians 1: 1-14. Two things become evident – the necessity of offering encouragement and the need to pray.

Evidence of a Spirit-filled life

In today’s message which is based on Galatians 5: 13-26, Rev Leo invites us to consider the fruit of the Spirit that becomes increasingly evident in our lives as we allow the Holy Spirit to work within us. The secondary reading, which is briefly referenced, comes from Luke 9: 51-62.

It doesn’t have to be that way!

The message that comes from our readings from 1 Kings 19: 1-18 and Luke 8: 26-39 is, ‘it doesn’t have to be that way’. In both readings we read of two people who are held captive, one to fear and anxiety, the other by some form of demonic activity. In 1 Kings we see the great prophet Elijah fall in a heap almost immediately after pulling off a great victory against the false prophets of Baal. He discovers however that…
