MUC joins with several other Christian Churches in Manningham, Manningham Rotary and the City of Manningham to stage a Family Festival prior to the City of Manningham’s “Carols by Candlelight” event at Ruffey Lake Park.
The Christmas Bowl Appeal is the major fundraising event of Act for Peace, the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches.

congregational giving and through participation in
ecumenical collections outside supermarkets in Manningham.
MUC members will be collecting outside Woolworths
Supermarket, Macedon Plaza, Templestowe Lower,
from 11am-6pm on Christmas Eve.
Programs supported by the Christmas Bowl assist refugees,
asylum seekers and displaced people and people living in
extreme poverty, particularly in Ethiopia, Sri Lanka,
