Sunday 9th Feb is the St Kilda Festival. This event has many road closures and may make getting to church a bit tricky for some coming from the west side of St Kilda Rd.

A commercial kitchen?

Some will recall that our church meeting last November discussed the idea of installing a commercial kitchen to assist with the logistics of Community Kitchen. While we have consistently affirmed the ministry of Community Kitchen and MOTH, we have also recognised that a commercial kitchen would require some changes to our building. Pondering this raised for us some important questions about future objectives and what we understand God is saying to us through this ministry. We thought this invited us to spend some time in further reflection and discussion.

We’d like to invite you to a Congregational Conversation on 1st March following our service of worship. To prepare for this, there are two things we’d love you to do:

  • Come to Community Kitchen (any Monday in February) and/or Matters of the Heart (Wednesday 12th February) at 6pm, especially if you’ve not been for a while, so you have a picture of this ministry of our church
  • Engage in prayerful preparation using the conversation guide that is attached to the Weekly Update.

One of the many gifts of our community is the willingness to respectfully discuss and discern these things together. We are very grateful.
