St Margaret's News June 2017

St. Margaret’s News June 2017 St Margaret’s Uniting Church Hackett is an inclusive, welcoming and caring Christian community which highly values engagement with the wider inner north community of Canberra. The Uniting Church in Australia is celebrating 40 years as a uniquely Australian church. At the inauguration service on Wednesday 22 June 1977 the first Presi- dent, Rev. Dr Davis McCaughey, the primary author of the Basis of Union, remarked that church union ‘meant absolutely nothing, unless it drives us back to the fundamental questions – where do you come from, where are you going, and who are you?’ “Are you and I prepared to find our bearings afresh?” asked McCaughey, as he urged the 1977 faithful on a new pilgrimage, to engage the world through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the outpouring of his spirit. Our leaders have been marking the occasion with 40 days of prayer up until our historic inauguration date, from Sunday 14 May to Thursday 22 June.
