Join the SPACE Contemplative Community for an Advent SPACE service.

Thursday 17 November 2022

Join Rev Sandy Brodine as she curates a reflective service based on St Benedict’s encouragement to his followers to live all of life as though it was Advent.

We are encouraged to enter the advent season sharpening our awareness on the presence of God as we wait for the Incarnate one who comes anew at Christmas.

This service includes a lovely “Silent Meditation” sequence taken from our friend Rev Dr Peter Blackwood’s “Icon Diary” as he paints his own icon of St Benedict, set to music by the Cambridge Singers.

Celebrating Small things!

This month at Messy Church, we’ll be looking at a story about one of the tiniest seeds in the world – a mustard seed, which grows into a huge bush! We’ll talk about what this tells us about God, and how God celebrates small things.

We’ll also have all the usual fun activities, games and crafts, a celebration time and a yummy shared meal.

It will be lovely to see you all this Sunday 13 November 2022 from 4:30 – 6:30 at Ivanhoe Uniting Church, Seddon St Ivanhoe. Bring your friends!

Join Kristen Barnett as she leads the SPACE Contemplative Community for our monthly Meditation Service.

In May 2021, the last service was held at Heidelberg Scots Church while renovations began.

After more than 12 months, on Sunday 30 October 2022, we welcomed over 120 people from all our congregations into the newly renovated worship space for a Network Service.

Here are photos of the interior of the church, with names of those we have lost hanging on a Remembrance Tree, as part of an All Souls Service.

The Latest Update

7 October 2022

On Monday 3 October 2022, the fences surrounding the Heidelberg site were finally removed. Although the site is free of its fencing, unfortunately it still is half a building site. The worship space is awaiting the final sign off which we hope to receive in the next week.  Once we have the final certificate for the worship area, it will need some cleaning up and furniture moved into place.

The Sycamore Tree Café is open for business, however, serving light refreshments. The retail space next to the café is having a mini-makeover ready for our new tenants, Uniting Pathways, to move in. In the next few months, we still have some painting, landscaping and fire services to the back hall to be installed.
