Goulburn celebrates UCA 30 years

Goulburn Uniting Church is abuzz with excitement as it prepares for the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Uniting Church. Led by a retired minister, the Rev. Neville Guthrey, a committee is working hard to create a program that will embrace the whole community.

Over the years the Uniting Church has been led by a number of dynamic ministers and enthusiastic lay people. The congregation meets in the former Methodist Church, in Goldsmith Street, Goulburn. Built in 1871, it is the oldest worship centre in the city.
A dinner on Saturday 23 June will be a time to reconnect with former ministers and members who have moved away.

The worship service on Sunday 24 June will be led by Goulburn’s current minister, the Presbytery Chairperson Rev. Norm Wakefield, with the address being delivered by the Rev. Professor James Haire, Director of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture. After the service there will be a lunch.

People will have plenty of time to view a slide presentation depicting the life and times of the Uniting Church from 1977 to 2007.There also will be many photographs and other memorabilia for people to view and talk about over the whole weekend. If you would like to share the celebration you would be warmly welcomed. If you wish to partake of either or both of the meals, please phone Ron Butterworth on 48214425 for catering purposes.
