Rev. Karel Reus is providing supply ministery to the congregation this winter 2022.
I am honoured to spend a while with my new friends at the Ormond Uniting Church and to share part of their journey into the future. The Faith often feels like a comfortable old coat — warm, familiar, protecting. But The Faith is also a journey, with interesting twists and turns, and a few surprises. This journey is best done with others — encouraging and supporting each other. Some of those others are displayed on this page, but there are more. Together there is work to be done and there is joy to be had.
