Welcome

Hi Everyone,

It is with great sadness that I inform you that the Glebe Road Uniting Church Auditorium was extensively damaged by fire yesterday evening. The roof has been destroyed, but it appears, at this stage, that the structural integrity of the building has not been compromised.

I am very thankful to report there were no injuries and I am grateful to the members of the Fire, Police and Ambulance Services who attended the scene and addressed the issues so swiftly and professionally.
Investigations are continuing to determine the cause of the fire.

A special thanks to David Murphy, Rob Edwardson and Derek Hirons who rushed to be present during the emergency and remained on site to liaise with the Emergency Services personnel.

The Church Auditorium, Church Hall and Church Office, will be unable to accommodate worship, group activities, meetings and administration for the foreseeable future.

Therefore, this Sunday we are encouraging everyone who attends worship at Glebe Road to participate in worship at one of the other Ipswich Uniting Church locations:
8:30am at 2 Pommer St, Brassall
9:00am at 27 Ellenborough St, Ipswich
9:00am at 114 Jacaranda St, North Booval

Alternatively, you may choose to engage in worship online by live streaming the 9am service from Ellenborough Street, or watching it at a
later time.

I appreciate that this devastating news about the fire may cause significant distress to you and your loved ones at this time. If you
need someone to talk to please call me on 0400 774 890, or ring a supportive friend for comfort and prayerful encouragement.

The Leadership Team is preparing to meet early next week to discern the way forward.

Please be assured of my love and prayers for you at this difficult time.
Remember, our God is a faithful God. From Psalm 121:1-2 we read:

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Blessings,
Pete.                         14th May, 2022.

There will be two services this week 29th May, both in the Fellowship Hall – at 08:15am and at 10:15am

Welcome

 to Glebe Road Uniting Church!

I am delighted to introduce to you Nyleta Bruce who has recently been commissioned as our Families Pastor. The role of Families Pastor is vitally important in supporting our church families and connecting with families across the Ipswich community.

We continue on our journey of becoming one congregation with the Uniting Churches across Ipswich. This is an exciting time in the life and mission of the Ipswich Uniting Church and I invite you to come along to share this journey of discovery, growing together, and reaching out to the community with the love of Christ.

On Sunday 10th October we will be launching into the fifth, and final, series of sermons relating to the Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations. The fifth practice is entitled Extravagant Generosity. One of the hallmarks of Glebe Road UC is generosity. This season will provide a great opportunity to build on our strengths.

You are warmly invited to share in our Sunday Morning Worship Services and any of the upcoming activities advertised. Please stay connected with us through the website and Facebook pages.

I hope to see you soon!

Blessings,
Pete.
