Lent – Sunday Feb 25th.


In our Wandering Heart lenten journey we will continue to follow the disciple Peter who leads us on the meandering path of faith. This week is another beloved story with Peter walking on water.

As a new disciple, perhaps Peter wants to prove himself. Boldly, in the middle of a storm, Peter steps out of the boat to join Jesus who is walking on top of the waves. He, too, walks on water until the wind shakes his trust and he begins to sink. Many of us know what it feels like to be thrown off balance, to feel as if we’re sinking. Maybe this looks like doubt, unexpected change, too-busy seasons of life, devastating grief, or distance from God or a center of meaning. In this story, we empathize with the desperation Peter feels as he cries out, and will have an opportunity to see how we relate to his cry for rescue. It will give us a chance to explore together how we make it through storms and what communal wisdom exists around these challenging places.

We hope to see you on Sunday! In Person and also on Zoom

Home Naming Sunday

On Sunday we will share in a ritualistic naming of those who have more recently come to see this church as their spiritual home.

It will be a chance for people to have their sense of belonging with TUC acknowledged and celebrated.

So if you now see this place as your spiritual home, we are creating a moment in which you can claim that – hoping and believing it helps to have that named and known It will also be a chance for the existing community to offer arms of welcome, and to in a symbolic way, pledge to journeying with you.
This will be available for those have more recently come to live and move amongst us, but also for those whose journey not have started particularly recently, but who would none-the-less value the chance to acknowledge this as your spiritual home.

As a part of this ritual, anyone, those who wish to participate will be asked to respond to the question: what is it you value about this community?

If you are keen to this, please email (minister@tecomauc.org,au) or SMS Matt and plan to be there this Sunday if possible.
