St Margaret's News November 2018 - Page 11

New Minister for St Ninian’s St Ninian’s Uniting Church is getting a new minister, Rev Neil Millar, an Anglican minister. He is known to the St Margaret’s congregation (having preached for us) and has been Chris Lockley’s pastoral practitioner supervi- sor. Neil started at St Ninian’s on 12 November providing long-term supply ministry. Neil has worked as a youth minister, parish priest, theological educator and aged-care chaplain. A walker of ancient pilgrim paths, Neil relishes the feel of pack and staff, and the road stretching ahead. Neil is co-founder of the Bene- dictus community, a contemplative church, with his partner Sarah Bachelard. Sarah is a theologian, retreat leader and priest in Anglican orders, and author of Experiencing God in a time of Crisis (2012) and Resurrection and Moral Imagination (2014). Sarah also founded and runs the Benedictus community, a contemplative church currently meeting in the Holy Covenant Anglican church at Cook. Having both Neil and Sarah in North Canberra will be good assets in the inner north.

At the conclusion of the NPG exhibition the NPPP2019 will head off on a national tour. Congratulations to Maddie - and to her undoubtedly proud parents Mark (Well done babe !! xxxx ) and Liz (Oh Maddy so thrilled for you xxxx), grandparents Jeff and Marge, and all the rest of her family.
