Sung Eucharist with Rev’d Penny Jones at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, 233 Milton Road Milton, St Francis Theological College.


Services are followed by morning tea, to which all are very welcome.


Sanctus - the name 'Sanctus' just means 'holy' and the idea is to set aside some 'holy ground' to sit with God and listen - happens once a month on the last Saturday of the month.



The next Sanctus - "Everything is Sacred ~ A Celtic Spirituality",

will be held at 5pm on Saturday 26th August 2017.


This time will be spent contemplating the holy in everyday life. We seek to meet the God who is always with us in the world around us and in our everyday activities. We will be exploring this through traditional Celtic Spirituality, which is deeply embedded in the recognition of God in all things.


Sanctus is held at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit,

St Francis Theological College, 
233 Milton Road, Milton.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Mothering Sunday & Clipping Ceremony



The Anglican Parish of Auchenflower-Milton celebrated Mothering Sunday, with a traditional “Clipping Ceremony”, held at The Chapel of the Holy Spirit, St Francis Theological College.


Clipping Ceremonies had been held earlier in the Parish:


Here is an extract The Courier-Mail, dated 30 August 1948 p 4 (found by our Heritage Specialist, Historian Dr Hilda Maclean):


"Church in Clipping Ceremony:

'Clipping' of a Milton Church was an outstanding of anniversary ceremony held yesterday.

Two hundred and fifty Anglicans celebrating the 75th anniversary of Christ Church, Milton, surrounded the church, joined hands, and thus 'clipped' (Anglo-Saxon: 'embraced') the church.

By carrying out this old English Mothering Sunday ceremony, the congregation expressed its love for Mother Church.

After singing two verses of the hymn, 'We Love the Place, O God,' the congregation filed into the church, where the Rev. V. H. Whitehouse. a former rector, preached the sermon and celebrated Holy Communion."
