U Matters

If you think Union is busy on Sunday, come here any other day of the week. We are a seven day-a-week church. Monday a large group of guys met for Men's Fraternity. Tuesday 61 people showed up for the first in a Lenten series on suffering. Wednesday our Young Adults heard three Christian architects share their faith and their craft. Thursday the sanctuary is full of wedding rehearsals and Friday the booming youth group invades these sacred precincts. God has blessed Union and we need to be attentive to his guidance as we look to our future. Union is an exciting church and we haven't even begun to see what our Lord has planned for us. 

Sunday at 11AM is the BIG VOTE. Please read carefully the announcements about the AGM below. If you are a member, we want you there to vote. The study, the debate, and the preparation are over. Now is the time to act. God will speak through his people. We seek to discern His will for us as we continue the adventure of following Christ together.


Annual General Meeting

The congregation is encouraged to attend Union's Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will be held at 11AM on Sunday, 16 March in lieu of the 11AM Sanctuary Service. Please be punctual for the AGM. In order to avoid a long queue, we would recommend signing in early and collecting ballot papers from 10:30am onwards. Members who have collected their ballot papers will not be allowed to leave the Sanctuary until voting is over. Voting members will vote for church officers, and the plan for Building Union for the Future will be presented for approval. Parents are encouraged to leave their children with Sunday School. 

The church's annual report, biographical notes on Committee of Management and Deacon nominees and church financials are now available in the Foyer. As we approach this important meeting, we would ask all members to pray for God's will to be revealed to them and vote accordingly.

U Cafe Worship Service:
This Sunday, 16 March, 11:00AM - 12:00PM

If you are a voting member of the church we would ask that you make it a priority to attend and cast your vote at the AGM. We look forward to seeing you there and thank you in advance for your commitment and participation.
