Experience life in all its fullness!

Christmas Postcard 2016The birth of Christ is a time of celebration for Christians. As we gather to retell the Christmas story, we are drawn to reflect on the abundant, eternal life Jesus came to give us.

The fullness of life through Christ – its ups and downs, births and deaths – is something we are often reminded of over the busy holiday season. It offers opportunities for friends and family to gather together, to remember those who are no longer with us, and to prepare for the year ahead.

Christmas is a time to reflect on and experience the fullness of life.

No matter what stage of life you are in, there is a place for you in the Uniting Church in South Australia.

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. – John 10:10b

Advent Conspiracy 2016

Can Christmas still change the world?

The Christmas story is a story of love, hope, redemption and relationship. So, what happened? How did it turn into stuff, stress and debt? Somehow, we’ve traded the best story in the world for the story of what’s on sale.

Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, & Love All.
