On Sunday 3 November we will celebrate All Saints Day.
In worship we will remember and give thanks to God for those members of our congregation, in our families and amongst our friends, who have died in the Lord. If you would like a loved one to be acknowledged in the memorial rite, please send along their name to Bronny at the Church Office by Tuesday 29 October.
Every week a large number of volunteers are rostered on to assist with our worship services, in a number of roles. At St John's Unley we value our volunteers, and the important contribution that each of them make. To see who is rostered on for roles this week, and the following week, click on the PDF document below.
Calling all Golfers!

GROWING FAITH AT HOME is a weekly lectionary-based resource to help your households live, share and celebrate faith together each and every week!
- Looking for a way to link Sunday worship with household faith formation Sunday to Sunday?
- Want to provide resources to help parents and grandparents pass on the Christian faith in their homes?
A resource that connects weekly congregational worship with the faith life of the home.
Where does GROWING FAITH AT HOME come from?
GROWING FAITH AT HOME is developed by the Lutheran Church of Australia department, Grow Ministries
Is GROWING FAITH AT HOME only for families with children or youth?
People of all ages can use the devotional resources (Bible readings, prayers, blessings) in their personal or couple ‘quiet times’.
Small groups, ministry teams and committees can also benefit from using the Faith Talk questions for spiritual reflection and focus.
Using GROWING FAITH AT HOME to its full potential requires more than simply photocopying the resources and distributing them to select households. It has proven to be of most benefit when reinforced through Sunday worship, promoted to households on an ongoing basis and supplemented with practical teaching and training.
A [Congregational users guide](https://www.growministries.org.au/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2018/06/GFH-A4-congregational-users-guide_2018.pdf) and [Home user's guide](https://www.growministries.org.au/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2018/06/GFH-home-users-guide_2018.pdf) have been developed to help you introduce the resource to your congregation and support its use over time.
