Recently the Harden Uniting Church hosted a Men’s Breakfast.

Forty five people from across the local community attended, plus 5 ladies catering. Although it was titled a Men’s Breakfast, the event was opened up to the ladies of the district due to the interest shown and one of the main speakers being female.

The speakers were Geoff and Sue Orchison who spoke about their daily life while on a trip to Bethlehem last year. Geoff and Sue detailed their experiences including the fabulous food, the Muslim traditions of many of the populace, the political and religious tensions in the area and the friends they made while in Bethlehem. Artist Sue also attended a workshop on iconography. Their interesting and highly personal talk was spiced with a series of photos displayed using a data projector, drawing on Geoff’s journalistic expertise.

These breakfasts are put on as ecumenical events supported by the Uniting, Anglican and Catholic churches in Harden-Murrumburrah. They are held approximately quarterly and will be held in 2019 alternating between the Uniting Church and Anglican Church parish halls. Organisers aim to attract a variety of speakers on a range of topics of general interest to the community. Past breakfasts have included talks on men’s health, mental health and depression, travel to South America and “Where is God when it hurts?”
