Welcome to St Andrew’s Uniting Church Bendigo-Axedale

A message from our minister Rev Di Esbensen …

Standing at the threshold of a new adventure is both exciting and just a little
daunting. By the time you read this we will be winging our way further away
from what is familiar, than we have ever been before. Mike and I are taking
on an adventure of travel, exploring and learning, of discovery, reflection and
transformation. As we make the last-minute preparations it occurs to me that
we in the Central Cluster of the Uniting Church in Bendigo are also at a time
when we are choosing to embark on an exploration of previously unvisited
places of ministry, worship and mission.
We have such a strength of heritage to draw upon. It’s a good foundation to
start from but the world we are stepping into, as a people committed to an
engaged, vital and relevant Christian way of believing and living, this new
world is going to demand of us an engagement with the issues of our day
and of the future in a new, clear and connecting expression of our faith.
I am about to stand in the middle of Berlin; I don’t know where to find things, I
don’t have a grasp of the language – and yet I feel invigorated by the
challenge of discovering ways to communicate and connect. I am about to go
to a Conference with world-renowned speakers and I am a little daunted
about holding my own in a conversation. Yet I feel invigorated about the idea
of engaging in new thinking on the Biblical Texts and faith.
We as communities of faith are standing in a new time, unsure of what the
future will look like – and yet invigorated by the challenges and possibilities.
Whether it’s my adventure in a new country and the world of biblical and
theological conversations, or all of us at Forest St and St Andrew’s Bendigo
and Axedale – I believe our willingness.
