Mark the Evangelist Update – September 4 2015



the latest MtE update:

  1. This Sunday we begin a series of reflections on the book of James; more information here.
  2. On Sunday September 20 there will be a congregation discussion following worship (this replaces the previously planned Sunday Conversation). This will be an introduction of the Mark the Evangelist Futures Project (MTEFP), which is the process we will be going through to make a decision regarding our utilisation of the various capital resources we have for mission (including questions of the renovation of Union Memorial Church). The MTEFP is a major exercise which will engage us for the next 6-8 months. Further details about the September 20 discussion will be advised in the next week or so, but at this stage the Church Council encourages as many members as as possible to plan to be present at this particularly important conversation. We expect to begin after a brief morning tea, and for the introduction and discussion to run up to 1.5 hours.
  3. Some of you might be interested in this historic film strip, which gives some insight into the work of the Methodist Mission in North Melbourne several generations ago (perhaps some one of you can date it for us?!)
