This Sunday – April 14th

We are in a season of Easter – a season when think about how faith changes and transforms us.

For those of us on a journey with the great mystery of God and the great challenge of living the way of Jesus, the path is always unfolding. Whilst it will look different for all of us, there is so much to be learned by hearing more about each others journey.

On Sunday we are going to begin a run of several weeks of interviews – and hearing from TUC folk how their faith and following is evolving and growing .

This week we will hear from Ben and Nat Inder, and then over the next few weeks … you!!
Some of the questions we’ll be asking ourselves and hearing other people’s thoughts on are:

  • In what ways has your faith and spirituality had to grow?
  • What beliefs did you carry that became no longer fit for purpose?
  • What skins have you had to shed – what had to be discarded?
  • What new things did you encounter, that had to be integrated into what you believed?
I look forward to this series as a community.

Harvest Sunday 28th April

Some of would recall Harvest Sunday from your childhood that we have been reactivating at TUC.

Traditionally it was a time to be grateful for what we are gifted from the earth. For us, it will also be a chance to mark the changing season we are so clearly seeing.

One of the ways we plan to mark the day, is by asking you to bring something from your garden. Whilst traditionally food is the primary offering, we’d love you to bring in anything! Produce, flowers or greenery – anything from your patch which we can add to our alter space during the service.

We are ALSO asking you to bring non-perishable food we can add our food pantry – hoping this will become a tradition that will help us stock our cupboards for the coming winter period.

A new addition to our celebration of Harvest this year, will be a soup and rolls lunch. It is a nice time of year to gather at the start of a new term and a new season, and begin the journey inwards. Barb and Sue will be making this happen and are hoping soup makers in our midst would be prepared to offer a soup for lunch.

Evolving Faith Discussion Series

We are exploring running a 5 week discussion series on Tuesday Nights in May/June.

It will be a chance to unearth and explore the questions we have around some of the foundational aspects of Christian faith; scripture, s

and grapple with question like;

  • How are we to respond to other faiths – and are there other ways to God?
  • How are we to approach scripture in today’s world?
  • What does a faith engaged in the world look like?
  • Do we need saving … and if so, from what and to what?

There would be an accompanying podcast to listen to during the week (as bonus stimulus), but primarily it will a chance to learn more and to hear more from each other.

A sign up sheet is at the back of the church or an online version is here.

Healing Our Nature Connection

Tecoma Uniting is helping host a very special weekend experience and there are only a few spots left!
It is next weekend – April 20-21 and the program is looking wonderful.
The dates are April 20-21, and some remarkable healers will be joining us, including Uncle Murrundindi (head Elder/spiritual leader of the Wurundjeri people) and the CEO of Sikh Volunteers Victoria, Jaswinder Singh, who will facilitate a sacred Langar meal for us on the floor of the church. We will also spend some hours walking and weeding on Country, helped along by Council’s bushland team.
I pray that this program will help our community continue healing from recent storms as we look together toward a future with increasingly unpredictable weather patterns. It will certainly offer a feast of emotional and spiritual resources to carry us along the way.
Registration is via Humanitix and will cap at forty. There are inexpensive tickets for people who can pay and free tickets for those who can’t. No one will know which ticket you choose. 



‘Contemplative Art’ is a space to reflect on a theme as a group through discussion, contemplation and creative response.

Facilitator, Samuel – Arts Psychotherapist, will guide you through a process of deepening and reflection on the theme in a soft and dynamic approach, allowing participants to creatively engage with the process how they like. This month’s theme is ‘Acceptance’.

$10/$15 pp.
