Sandgate Uniting Church


Its a shame that for the Christmas Festival that you can't hear the Choirs or Soloists for the noise in the foyer.Perhaps the concertina glass doors could be partly closed.
Are you open next weekend
Do you have list of what entertainment is on each night please?
Hi there. What time is church tomorrow please?
Hi, many in the community have been wondering why your Xmas decorations have been up since the middle of October? If you could help us understand, that would be great :0)
Hi, This is just a short note to let you know that we have been asked by a concerned local to ask you not to hand out balloon to children during this year's Christmas celebrations or at any other time. It seems that balloons were handed out last year and many balloons, or their remains, were then found on the ground inside and the surrounding area of your premises. Please do not use balloons for celebratory, commemorative or promotional purposes. They kill our birds and turtles and other wildlife, pets and farm animals.They are not biodegradable! There are so many alternatives available.

"A TRUE SENSE OF PRIDE" by Rev. Dr. Shane Andersen DD (Hon): We live in fickled times, which can be truly magnificent and wonderful, we have experienced not too long ago (November 2017 in fact) here in Australia. i,e, With a recent Plebiscite, conducted by the Australian Government into what some refer to as GAY WEDDINGS, and/or MARRIAGE EQUALITY, etc. Two notable things came out of this activity... (1) It showed that the Prime Minister and others in his party, where somewhat skeptical as to whether it would be SAFE for them to VOTE for Marriage Equality, and possibly face the wrath of those who were/are anti-Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered or Intersexed (GLBTI), and possibly kicked out of government, even though they seemed to have the mandate to do so. And with a Mistrust by the Prime Minister of his ministers to make the right desition for human rights and equality, OR to spend a fortune (over a million dollars to sent out to the electorate, a vote (plebiscite) form, for the voting population, the right to have their say (Yes/NO). I know it was a huge sigh of relief that our Prime Minister would have felt, with the end result being voted with a huge majority by the public of Australia, for the YES vote. plus, a very large majority of the Australian Political Party members also voted YES. With Rainbow flags being waved, out in the street, and in Parliament House, and kisses all around, a new sense of pride had his Australians like a tidal wave, or in fact a tsunami of JOY and well being. This left the Anti Human Rights Church Ministers and many of their congregations saying to themselves... "WHAT THE...," and fearing the Devil had taken control of the masses, and that God would be totally miffed. I believe that the opposite would in fact be the case. For the millions of LGBTI people of every age, flowed a sigh of relief and happiness, in the knowledge that actually, as opposed to what many closeted folks thought, they were/are truly accepted, loved by much more than half the Australian public, and rightly so. I believe that it's truly right to say that not only God (Their/Our creator also had a sigh of relief, but spearheaded what eventuated, and unbeknown to many, God had spoken to a large number of individuals, Ministers, Priests, Pastors, in their dreams/sleep, and their daily lives to work within unique churches globally, especially here in Australia, and other countries who now, and in the future would be facing the same triumphant successes for equality. But what is the major problem with the Catholic Churches and others who are fighting the inevitable? It is (1) Those who are ignorant of the truth of human sexual expression, and their own dislike for the thoughts about sexual ACTIVITIES?!? of the LGBTI community and (2) those supposedly few Bible texts of anti-gay commentary, when there are so many more idiosyncrasies and failures expressed, condemned within the pages of the Bible, and admonished by Christ himself for doing acts which is far worse than the other. And while I am on this subject, let me remind those of condemning, any individual, that Jesus spoke nothing about the LGBTIQ Community, but *taught LOVE & RESPECT, and *rebuked those who sought to judge others, with strong words (Read the references on our website: www.OutreachMinistriesAu.Wix.Com/OMA-HQ God bless you all, and may 2018 be a year of so many blessings to all. and remember, what goes around often comes around. God LOVES YOU so much, that he gave his only begotten Son for you so you could enjoy the riches of care for one another, and for his/her love to us.with abundant life Yours in Christ.

Bit of a tradition for our family, it's our final stop for coffee and Christmas cake. We go every year. Been doing it now since our daughter was 5 or 6 I think. She drove us for the first time this year. Lovely the people and great place to rest while listening to the music.
Looks like a really great evening and Christmas period coming up- well done folks.😇😇😇🎉🎉🎉

You will see that the feature article, Jesus, light of the World, is the UCA theme for this Easter. A pull quote from this article says "There is no dark place you will ever go where Jesus is not present." This is a comforting thought in light of the present Covid-19 pandemic.

But don't forget the lights will still be on tomorrow evening and we have our Christmas Eve Service (see events).

[12/20/19]   Tonight we will have two very talented and fun groups: first the Freud Squad - they often manage to get people up dancing to their special brand of jazz.
After the break we will have the Multitude Community Choir - they take musical fun to another level and you will be hard-pushed not to want to join in.

[12/20/19]   Our free entertainment tonight features the Ormiston Pipe band. They will be playing inside this year so you can sing-along.

After the break the wonderful Second Wind Big Band with a good variety of music. Come along and join in the fun.

[12/20/19]   Lots to eat: sausage (with onions, sauce, etc.) on bread; yummy doughnuts, or Christmas cake; ice creams. Drinks include tea, coffee, water, assorted softdrinks.

Take home some fudge - some different flavours this year - if not sold out. Jams and pickles always popular.

[12/20/19]   Hope you have seen the magnificent lights, portraying "Peace to You".
