Good Friday Worship Reflection 10 April 2020

Friday 10 April 2020 we join Christian communities around the world to remember the crucifixion of Jesus.

As you prepare to watch and listen to this service you’re invited to light a candle at 9.30am, thinking of others in our congregation who may be doing the same in their homes. You may like to say this PRAYER, knowing others in our Margaret River Uniting Church community will say that prayer at the same time as you. In this way we stay unified in our connection.

Thanks to Rev Don Dowling for creating these video reflections for our church community.

Worship Resource Sunday 29 March 2020

While we are not able to meet together as a church community face to face, we are looking to other ways to stay connected during this time.

We see this as a time for maintaining hopefulness about God’s loving presence in our lives, even when circumstances threaten to dim our hope.

You are invited to light a candle at 9.30am each Sunday morning, thinking of others in our congregation who may be doing the same in their homes.  You may like to say this PRAYER, knowing others in our Margaret River Uniting Church community will say that prayer at the same time as you.  In this way we stay unified in our connection.

Rev Don Dowling has put together the first of a series of brief worship videos, set in our church which includes some familiar faces and voices.

Stations of the Cross – Station 1

You may have heard of the Wesley Uniting Church, Perth, annual Stations of the Cross Art Exhibition.

Each year the exhibition featured newly commissioned artworks by fifteen Western Australian contemporary artists.

The artists were invited to respond to the traditional story of Easter and the ritual of the ‘Stations of the Cross’.

While pertaining to a religious narrative, participating artists each interpret a single ‘station’ through their personal and unique understanding of Easter and the human experiences and themes that underlie it.

Rev Don Dowling compiled a video in 2015 of the Stations of the Cross Art Exibition.

This first video is an introduction to the Stations as well as an interview with Artist Julie Dowling who offers us an interpretation of Station Number one “Jesus is Condemned”
