Community Activities

Worship

Currently our community meets regularly on Sunday morning at 10.15 am.  Our gathering is traditional in style but contemporary in content. Our public services are a celebration of our experiences of God’s love and goodness to us.

We all come from different backgrounds and experiences of God. Each of us will interpret the foundations of our faith through different lenses. Some interpretations will be helpful while other interpretations may be a stumbling block to us living in the experience of the Divine loving presence. Each generation and community needs to interpret the heart and truths of the Christian life in its contemporary context. To this end we commit ourselves to an evolving liturgy and worship celebration that reflects our contemporary insights and discoveries.

Each First Sunday of the Month, there will be a short Eucharist Service starting at 11.00 am. This will be immediately followed by a Parish Lunch in our church hall, commencing at 11.45 pm. If you wish to attend the luncheon, please contact the Church Office by the Friday before the Eucharist Service for catering purposes.

The celebration of Baptism and other sacred rituals are conducted by arrangement with the Minister.

Something for the Spirit

SFTS is an informal forum for talking about things of the spirit and life. Association with a church is not assumed, but we explore a wide range of ideas to help us make sense of the original Christian message for a life in the 21st century.

We have found particular help in the writings of Bishop John Spong, Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan, Karen Armstrong, and the Australian, Val Webb. We also try to gain an understanding of other major faiths.

We normally meet in a private home once a month.
