Sunday Service @ St Michael's Uniting Church
St Michael's is a unique church in the heart of the city. Unique for its relevant, contemporary preaching that embraces eclectic spirituality and inner wellbeing as its core message.
Executive Minister Dr Francis Macnab is an internationally renowned public speaker and Psychotherapist. He has published more than 25 books and created "Mingary - the Quiet Place"a contemplative space at St Michael's open to all members of the public to enjoy a meditative and reflective experience. Mingary also offers low cost counselling under the supervision of the Manager Psychologist Dr Lynette Kramer. Mingary is run in conjunction with the Cairnmillar Institute and the Australian Foundation for Aftermath Reactions, both of which Dr Macnab founded.
In September 2008 Dr Macnab launched the 'New Faith' with the declaration that 'the Ten Commandments, one of the most negative documents ever written.. The old faith is in large sections unbelievable. We want to make the new faith more believable, realistic and helpful in terms of the way people live."There after Dr Macnab has been labelled a controversial cleric and rebel minister for his belief that there can be faith beyond orthodox Christianity.
If you would like to know more about the 'New Faith' please visit the New Faith link below to watch Dr Macnab's lectures and seminars on the topic.
Sunday services include a mix of traditional and modern presentations. Inspirational music is integral to the services and most Sunday services include guest musicians, who perform in-between readings from the Bible, New Scientist Magazine, Time Magazine, Australian and International poets as well as current news articles.
In short, you don't have to be Christian in order to attend a Sunday service at St Michael's. One of our congregation recently stated that she had 'been coming to this church since 1984 and I wouldn't call myself a Christian. I love the feeling of hope and the conversations that are started each week'
St Michael's offers a wide variety of experiences for growth and change. It is a place which affirms and encourages the best expression of who you are and who you can be, not only through the Sunday service but thought numerous wellbeing programs and its commitment to counselling and psychotherapy.
We believe faith, spirituality and a meaning to life are vital ingredients for our health and well-being and that there is a need to get hold of a more authentic religious understanding and to express it more confidently and diversely.
Sunday services commence at 10am.
