After a period of discernment, led by members of the Presbytery, plus education in several disciplines, Rosemary Myers was accepted and commissioned for this ministry at a service held at The Canberra Hospital’s Chapel. Rosemary’s family from Newcastle and Canberra supported her, along with many members of her faith community at Kippax UC.

Members of the TCH Chaplaincy team from other faith groups, including Catholic and Anglican chaplains, also attended the UCA service.

The Death Café is a friendly and informal gathering in a relaxed café environment to discuss death, in order to lead a fuller life.

What do you know about death?

Death is not a ‘disease’. Death is not a euphemism. It is not only for the old; young people also face death.

Sunday 15 February 2015, 5-7pm

This is a Kippax Uniting Church and Palliative Care ACT joint initiative. Lead by a staff member from at Palliative Care ACT, Canberra. For further information, call KUCC on 6254 1733. RSVP & free tickets.

20 cents, or more?

In the near future, you will probably look at your pocket-change and see this, a 20 cent coin with a stylised image of an Army Chaplain ministering to a soldier.

Take a moment to think about the service men and women to whom our UCA and other Chaplains are a friend, confidant, and mentor. Then, there are those in the Police forces, hospitals, work places, sports, remote regions, and so on.

Is there anything you can do?
Yes: Support, uplift, praise, and pray for, these chaplains. And, those they serve.

Uniting Church Chapel service – Canberra Hospital

Canberra Hospital
A Uniting Church Chapel service has been established at the Canberra Hospital on Thursday mornings at 9:30.

Your help is needed in two ways:
1. When you have friends or family in the hospital, please let them know that there is a chapel service available. For those who cannot get to the chapel, bedside communion can be arranged. They need not miss out.
2. We are looking for volunteers to help with the service, setting up, greeting, making music and assisting with the service (serving, lighting candles, reading etc)

The service is from 9:30-10:00 (sometimes running to 10:10)and so you can be in and out in 45mins to 1 hour. There is plenty of parking in the multistory carpark (which is near the chapel) because it is before visiting hours. You’ll be out before it gets busy. Interested?

Please send the Chaplain an email at jshannon at or call the chaplaincy on 6244 3768 or 0418 213 073.
