Framing Spring

Join Arts by the Sea for a special interactive photography event to see the world in new ways. On Sunday 5th November, from 2–5pm, we will explore the images in creation at the Waite Arboretum (Walter Young Ave., Urrbrae).

You are invited to bring along a camera, phone, pens/pencils and a notebook  or just your willing eyes which will be used to receive images of spring. You will be guided through a process that helps you slow down and notice creation’s beauty in new ways.

Please bring a water bottle, hat and sunscreen.

Suggested donation: $5 per person appreciated. A light snack will be provided.

Besides the organised activity, you can enjoy the blossoming rose gardens, variety of trees, and labyrinth.

Midday Prayers

Every Tuesday beginning 24th October 2017 at noon we will observe the midday prayer
here at St Andrews in St. Leonard’s Chapel.

All those interested are invited to attend. The thirty minutes will include simple
Liturgy, Psalm and Gospel readings, silence, and Communion (if others are present).
This is a good opportunity for those who find it difficult to attend the 9:30am
worship to stay connected with the gifts and graces that are part of our community.

Arts Ministry Event

Thursday 21st September,  at 7pm.
To mark the International Day of Peace Arts by the Sea is holding a light supper  with
small-group discussion and critical analysis of 1988 war film ‘Grave of the Fireflies’.
This English-language foreign film about the struggle of two children orphaned in an air raid will be new to most Australians as it derives from a 1967 semi-autobiographical novel by a civilian Japanese WWII survivor.

Unlike many war films it does not seek to glorify or condemn any side but simply portrays the harsh realities of life for the most powerless ordinary folk and honestly depicts how desperate wartime circumstances can sometimes overtake basic human decencies. This film carries challenging themes that will resonate even today as we are confronted daily with news about the Syrian refugee crisis, the ever-present threat of global terrorism and the escalating military tensions between North Korea and America.

To register interest please contact [email protected] or speak directly to event hosts Cat Opie and Adeline Yu. We also welcome volunteers to assist with catering, either by preparing savoury platters of finger food beforehand or helping to serve hot drinks on the night.
