"Christ the light of the world"
Stained glass window of St. Ives Uniting Church by David Saunders.
The centre of bright yellow represents Christ the light of the world.
The bright yellow forms a path along which walk the feet of the faithful.
The red flame attached to each foot represents the Holy Spirit.
Strengthened by Him these people are to "walk in the light"
and reflect the light of Christ in the world.
The colours symbolise: red, the act of redemption by Christ;green, the symbol of eternal life; purple, the Kingship of Christ.
Worship takes place at St Ives Uniting every Sunday at 9.30am. The atmosphere is friendly, and not too formal, involving choral presentations, hymns both old and new, organ and piano, and a reflection from our Minister, Rev. Dr. Geoff Dornan.

One of our special joys is celebrating baptism - this is Imogen at her baptism.
On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion, and special services are scattered throughout the year. These include ‘highlight Easter services', Mother's Day and Father's Day, Respect for Seniors Wear Purple Day Service, Bereavement Service and the annual Christmas Carol and Christmas Day Service.
Our worship is thoughtful and modern, seeking to address the needs of people living in the world right now. It shares the Gospel of God’s love and seeks to present it in a contemporary way.
We celebrated with symbols of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love
