Welcome to Advent

Sunday 12 November 2023

4.30 – 6.30pm at Ivanhoe Uniting Church, Seddon Street

Christmas is coming soon, and that means that the season of Advent is nearly upon us!

Advent is the time of year when we wait for the coming of the baby Jesus. There are stories of ‘getting ready’ for Jesus in the gospels: In Luke we have the story of the Angel appearing to Mary and telling her not to fear because her baby was from God and would bring joy and peace to the world. And in  Matthew we hear of Joseph having a dream where an angel tells him not to fear, and to look after Mary and the baby. I wonder how it felt for Mary and Joseph to have these strange dreams?

We’ll have all of our usual fun activities, crafts and games, as well as a celebration time and a shared meal. If you have friends who you think would like to join us at Messy Church, please bring them along with you.

Share in a prayerful and deeply reflective time with the SPACE Contemplative Community as you remember those you have loved and lost who are now with God.

Thursday 19 October 2023

In this service, we will share in the story of Christina of Markyate, a medieval anchorite nun who lived in the 12th century.

Rev Sandy Brodine has followed in the footsteps of Christina while travelling in the UK (many of the photos of St Albans Cathedral included in the service are Sandy’s) and she has also cross stitched some of the illustrations from her Psalter.

We hope you enjoy Christina’s feisty resolve to follow Jesus with all of her being.

Messy Baptism

It’s Messy Church again this coming Sunday, and we can’t wait to see you there.

This month we’re going to be talking all about Baptism! It’s going to be a great opportunity for those families who are interested in learning what Baptism is all about, as well as an opportunity for those of us who have been baptised to ‘remember’ our baptism, and have a think about what it’s all about!

If you have a photo of your baptism, please bring it with you – whatever age you are! We’ll have all of our usual fun activities, crafts and games, as well as a celebration time and a shared meal. (Meal is provided – please let us know if you have dietary requirements.

If you have friends who you think would like to join us at Messy Church, please bring them along with you.
