A New Minister is on the way!


Kathryn Stoel-Cousineaux has accepted the call of God to minister with the people of Leopold.  She will be inducted on April 7th at 2pm, but several members met her when they attended her ordination on March 24th.  Her first worship service at Leopold will be on April 14th (Palm Sunday).

Ken Flavell, editor of the weekly newsheet, church council member, regular worship assistant and ready volunteer for just about anything needing attention, was recognised recently for his work in the community with a Regional Achievement & Community Award.

In particular, the work that led to the award was Ken’s work, with three of his mates from the Leopold Men’s Shed, with the students of Moolap Primary School.



Now Study the Bible Online

The weekly Wednesday afternoon Bible study is now available online to those who have missed out. (See link on the left side menu, or click here) The style of study used is pretty unique, and designed to appeal to both religious and non-religious people alike. Pioneered by the Guild for Psychological Studies in San Francisco, it was brought to Australia by the Uniting Church’s Division of Field Services in the 90s and run as the ‘Nexus’ program. Rev. Bob was one of only a handful of people who went through the extensive training to be a facilitator, and he brings a sample to you here.
