We are trialling some tweaks to our Sunday service.
From the first Sunday in October to the end of Dec you may notice a few changes in the way we are led in worship on Sundays. We are looking at streamlining our services by reducing the number of people who will get up and say something in the service with the hope that the services run more smoothly be more engaging and helpful.
In the last quarter this year we are going to trial:
- No longer having a service host but appoint the Worship team leader or worship team member to welcome the congregation and pray our prayers of preparation and praise.
- Combine the giving of notices with the prayers of intercession. This means one person will do both at the same time in the service.
- Have a team of four people who will rotate throughout the quarter doing the bible readings.
We are hoping these small tweaks will help our service engagement and provide space for us to respond to what the Spirit is doing. As the trial goes on we would like to know what you think. Feel free to let an elder or staff know at the end of year after the trial.
If you are not part of a Life Group and are keen to join one, please let us know by filling out this Google form. Alternately you could print the attached PDF and fill it in manually. Thank you!

Redde allows people to easily and quickly make a gift or donation (or pay for an event, eg. church camp, mainly music) from within our web/app or from any browser session.
We acknowledge that giving cash or via envelopes is not always possible. This is a simple alternative and may also suit those with casual work better than setting up a regular amount via EFT.
You will need your credit/debit card and mobile phone (to receive a verification code). This Online Giving platform can be found at corouniting.org/give and on our app via the 'Give' menu option.

Following the recent launch of our new website and app, ongoing improvements and additions have been made in recent months. We're excited to see it's capabilities being used and look forward to the opportunities that this new digital platform provides.
In order to make the most of the app and the new website (and, if you call CoroUniting your home church, to be able to access information that was previously password-protected, eg. newsletters, minutes etc) you will need to download the app and create an account, or create an account via the website (please note that creating an account on either platform will automatically give you an account for both, however the app requires downloading to have an app account).
The app and website are an integral part of the way we communicate, with the ability to RSVP to events, lodge prayer requests, listen to Sunday messages, receive targeted notifications according to the specific ministries with which you choose to connect and so much more.
