Friday, March 1st, 10am
The local World Day of Prayer celebration will be held at the Leopold Uniting Church this year on the theme, “Come – Everything is Ready”.
Each year, this event focuses on a different country; this year it is Slovenia, a relatively new nation and one of the smallest, formed in 1991 from the breakup of Yugoslavia.
Mirroring other gatherings in over 170 countries, women and men from most of the local churches will meet on Friday morning, March 1st at 10 am for a worship service, followed by morning tea in the Fellowship Room. The speaker is yet to be announced, but watch this space for updates.

Our Ken Recognised for Community Work
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.
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.
