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.…

The Village Craft Fair is coming

Come this Friday and Saturday the church grounds and building will be abuzz with the sights and sounds of people eager to find a bargain at our legendary Craft Fair. The church family has a number of stalls selling craft products (obviously!) along with the usual cakes, jams and chutneys and a plant stall, while a host of other stall holders from the community will be selling their home-made wares. We have also arranged a selection of art which is…


The ministry of the church

In this message Rev Leo invites us to look at a new paradigm for the ministry of the church, to fully embrace the idea that all followers of Jesus are ministers and that the church needs to be better at affirming, celebrating and equipping the ‘church scattered’. The Scriptures that under-gird this are Ephesians 4: 1-16 and 1 Corinthians 14: 26.

God’s New Covenant with us.

In this message we consider God’s Covenant with us by first exploring the Covenant to Israel as expressed in Exodus 24: 3-11 and the connection of blood with both covenants.

Pursue love

There are different kinds of love but in 1 Corinthians 13 Paul is speaking about agape love and described what it is like and what it is not like. This kind of love is self-giving and self-sacrificing. It is the love of the Father as expressed in Jesus the Son. Imagine a church that truly practiced ‘agape’ love. That is the thrust of this week’s message.
