Supply Minister - Rev. Tina Lyndon Ng
Following the conclusion of the placement of Rev. Brendan Byrne at the Mountview congregation, we are pleased to announce that Rev. Tina Lyndon Ng has been appointed as Supply Minister at Mountview, beginning in November 2019.
Mountview is committed to including children in worship, as well as nurturing them toward a mature adult faith. Using story-telling, multi-media, singing, and the involvement of the whole congregation, time is set aside in each service for engagement with the Scriptural message. Mountview is currently exploring ways to enable its children and younger teens to participate more fully in the Sunday service, as well as provide faith development through the Awaken! service.
Mountview is blessed by a vibrant group of young adults who meet at 7:30pm every second Tuesday
to study Scripture, discuss life and the world, pray, chat, laugh, and eat. The group aims to balance studying Scripture with examining social justice issues, as well as participating in fundraising and volunteering.
Falam Chin Christian Church
This worshipping community consists of minority Chin people from North-East Burma/Myanmar, many of whom are refugees fleeing persecution in their homeland. The community meets at Mountview on Saturday evenings from 6:30pm, and on Sunday afternoons from 12 noon. Although not a recognised congregation or faith community of the Uniting Church, Mountview has agreed to extend hospitality to this group commencing January 2014.
Centre 81 is a drop-in centre which is open each weekday morning from 10am - 12:30pm. It is located at 81 Doncaster East Road on the western side of the Mountview property. The centre opened in May 1989 and offers
companionship, referrals, and food parcels for those in need.
Vietnamese Faith Community
Formally recognised as a Faith Community of the Uniting Church on the 16th October 2011, the Mountview Vietnamese Faith Community is reaching out to the growing local Vietnamese community in Mitcham. The Faith Community meets for worship at 5:30pm on Sunday evenings, followed by a communal meal.
Mountview's Pastoral Partners program provides pastoral care to all members of the Mountview congregation, both through regular informal contact and in response to specific needs. The Pastoral Partners team meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every odd month for training, support, and conversation.
