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.

It is happening. People wishing others a “Merry Christmas”.
Yet, for some, this is not a particularly merry time. If Christmas gives you “the blues”, for what ever reason*, then that is okay. You are not ‘wrong’, or ‘bad’, for not feeling “merry”.
* Reasons? Who needs reasons? Perhaps at around this time of year: a relative or friend or pet died; a relationship broke down; or, no particular reason.
If you think that you might need someone to talk to, do that, or seek help.
