Examine & Coffee- Wednesday 2pm

This informal midweek service examines the text and examines ourselves through conversation about the day’s scripture and prayers. Come and join us.  This is a great way to reflect or connect with God in the midst of a busy week.  Our gathering is often via Zoom and sometimes in person.  Either method allows us to enjoy coffee or tea and a friendly chat afterwards.

Our MInister will happily provide you with details and materials for use each week.   minister@highfieldroadcanterburyuc.org.au

Children and Worship – 9:30am

The sound of children and babies in our congregation is most welcome, after all, Jesus said “Let the children come to me”.  We have a dedicated space and resources at the front of our pews and in our foyer.  Both areas allow the family to be part of the service.  Where you decide to sit is your decision so please know that you are welcome anywhere.
 
At the moment we do not have a regular Sunday School but our dedicated, and eager teachers are ready and resourced to explain and teach God’s word.  All that is required is your expression of interest for your child to be involved.

Romanian Orthodox Service – Sunday 11:30am

There is also a Sunday Service for the Christian Orthodox Church Saint Filoteea from Arges.  An Orthodox Parish under the Romanian Orthodox Patriarchate with the mission of catering for the spiritual needs of the Romanian diaspora in Australia and facilitate the access to the Christian way of life to all interested, regardless of ethnicity.  Our aim is to imitate Christ in our daily lives, and become united with Him through communion with the Holy Sacraments in the Holy Liturgy which is celebrated every Sunday from 11.30 a.m. in Romanian and English.
