Gisborne Uniting Church offers a range of worship, service, educational and social activities to which you are warmly invited. If you are interested in any of these, or think the church could be of help to you, please do not hesitate to contact one of the people mentioned.
Our Worship Services are led by Ministers on 2nd Sunday monthly, and by lay preachers on other Sundays.
Communion is held on 4th Sunday monthly by an Ordained Minister.

EASTERN ORTHODOX ICONS
Observed by a Western iconographer
Peter Blackwood is a retired minister of the Uniting Church who has served both in parishes and on the Synod staff in Melbourne. His doctoral thesis was on the Old Testament psalms and he is a keen amateur musician.
Peter has painted many icons and he conducts workshops in Melbourne for people interested in painting (or "writing") their own icons.
These workshops are called "icon schools".
Icons are vividly coloured representations of people and stories from the Old and New Testaments, also of notable Christians down the ages.
Every Orthodox church around the world has numerous large icons, and many Orthodox believers have smaller icons in their homes.
Icons have both teaching and inspirational functions. Even more, they are a focus for prayer and reflection.
The largest Orthodox Church is in Russia, but there are self-governing Orthodox churches in many countries.
The largest Orthodox Church in Australia, by far,is the Greek Orthodox.
See our Resources page to watch a video of Peter's lecture.
The Macedon Ranges Partnership continues to explore new ways or fresh expressions of being missional Churches.
