Coming Together


CCWD & UCAWD combined serviceThe Church of Christ and Uniting Church at Wembley Downs almost consider themselves twins. Every time there’s a fifth Sunday in the month they join for worship and communion. Here’s part of the happy crowd from this morning’s celebration. 

A Trip Through the Apocalypse

Robert Brittain’s “24 Images of John’s Apocalypse” was commissioned and blessed at a special worship service at the Wembley Downs Church of Christ this morning. Emeritus Professor Reverend William Loader was present to address the gathering on the background and relevance of the book as a “text of hope.”
Rosemary Hunter, lecturer in art history, spoke of the critical elements of imagination, emotion and order that were consistently portrayed through Mr Brittain’s work, emphasising a positive message of ultimate reconciliation.
