Anglicare Heart Tea

We would like to offer a BIG thank you to Fr Arthur, Robyn, Pat and Claire for facilitating the wonderful Heart Tea afternoon event recently. We raised $640.00 for Anglicare and a wonderful calorie-rich time was had by all!

 

Parish Soup and Slice Morning

Our Annual Parish “Soup and Slice” morning was held on July 24th at our Church Hall and it was a huge success. Everyone enjoyed delicious home-made soups and various slices made by our volunteers.  Shelly Moses, was the Puppeteer  and everyone had a wonderful time.

We managed to raise $700 which has been donated to Mothers’ Union charities. We also had several raffles, and lots of lucky winners!

We offer a weekly PlayGroup for pre-school children. It operates during School Terms and every week we see a delightful group of small children along with Mums, Dads and many Grandparents!
