Bishop John Roundhill will be visiting us on September 22 and will be offering the rite of confirmation, and the re-affirmation of baptismal vows. Re-affirmation of baptismal vows is a rite available to anyone who may be returning to the church after a period of absence, or who is experiencing faith in a new or vital way. The reasons are many, and whether this rite could be “right” for you is best discerned in conversation. If you or anyone in your family wishes to be confirmed, or participate in the re-affirmation of baptismal vows, please contact Rev’d Sue Grimmett as soon as possible on mobile (0413 108 584) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Pizza, Movie and Chat: Sunday 22 September 6-9pm in the Undercroft. Cinema can be a powerful medium to explore life and faith. Come along for this first of our movie events where we will screen Martin Scorcese’s film, Silence. Based on Shūsaku Endō’s book, this is a movie about the struggle for faith in a world marked by suffering and the silence of God. Cost (to those who can afford it): $10 to cover the pizza order and movie license.
