Share Sunday 2020
A place to call home
Focus on youth homelessness
Sunday 30th August 2020
Share Sunday is an opportunity for the whole of the Uniting Church to celebrate the incredible community services being undertaken by our agencies, parish missions, presbyteries and congregations. It is also an invitation to continue to explore how we can partner together as we respond to Christ’s calling to serve humanity seeking to create an inclusive, connected and just world.
This year, the focus of our Share Sunday resources is youth homelessness, around the theme of ‘A place to call home.’
These resources include a complete sample service, with all prayers and responses, sermon/reflection, intergenerational activity resources & suggested hymns. An additional PowerPoint with the complete service and some powerful video reflections accompanies this resource for those congregations who use data projection in worship. These resources are available to download, but not in hard copy. However, if you are unable to download them, you may request a USB memory stick to be posted to you. Please adapt the material to suit your context and congregation(s).
This year’s occasion might be the time to invite some local Uniting staff, board members or volunteers along to be present in worship. We are happy to connect via ZOOM for congregations still meeting virtually. If you need a local contact to extend such an invitation, please let Deborah Grace Loh know.
As we pray, reflect and worship together as part of our Share Sunday services, we can continue to build on the rich history of Share, and the incredible contributions we as a church community make to improving the lives of many in our communities going through tough times. Thank you for participating.
