Every 2 months, we receive copies of the Crosslight Magazine from the Synod of Victoria and Tasmania for St Luke’s members. The magazine has many interesting articles about people and ideas in our wider Uniting Church family.
This year I have noticed that we have quite a few copies left over. To avoid waste, I would like to order accurate numbers for people who are interested in receiving it.
Please contact Robyn at the church office by the 16th of May if you would like a copy reserved for you.

Leprena Centre Manager Alison Overeem has written a poetic reflection for NAIDOC Week, which starts on Sunday. This year, the theme is Always Was, Always Will Be in recognition that First Nations people have occupied and cared for Australia for more than 65,000 years. Alison asks that we learn the history of First Peoples and hear and honour their stories. “It’s in knowing this connection to Land, through this lens of discernment the true lessons are learned. Honour the land and the stories sitting within Country wherever you may be. May our Churches and agencies discern, for it is in Nature’s classroom that we truly learn.”
