Christmas In July 2021

We were entertained with best of the Regency, a bowl of Negus, music and parlor games. The guests came dressed as their favourite Jane Austen character.

TUC Christmas Pageant Video
Tuggeranong Uniting Church presented a modern re-telling of the narratives surrounding Jesus’ birth during our Christmas worship service. The video was filmed mostly via Zoom and stars members of our congregation and our Girls’ Brigade. Our church children (and adults) did such a great job bringing the characters to life, and it was a joy to watch during our Christmas service.
Blessing of the Animals 2020
Our blessing of the animals service for 2020 was held outdoors as part of our SpringFEST festival. It was a fantastic morning of celebration for all of God’s beautiful and diverse creatures, and allowed us to give thanks for the finned and scaled, furry and feathered creatures with whom we share life on this planet. It also gave our pets a chance to meet and socialise!
Tuggeranong Uniting Church partnered with SouthFest and See-Change this year to hold a spring celebration! SpringFEST Sustainability Fair introduced us to some exciting new ways to reduce our environmental footprint, and connect with others in our community! The Fair featured a series of sustainability workshops on a variety of topics such as composting, seed saving, reducing plastic use, worm farming and creating bee friendly gardens. In addition we had all our favorite Spring Fair stalls.
