EASTER DAY 21 APRIL 2019 

Thank you to all who have helped to contribute to our Easter celebrations.  Those who have helped prepare the church so lovingly for services, prepared the grounds, and contributed their talents with music, singing, reading and serving. We also thank those who have donated to the cost of flowers and the cleaning of the banners. Please join us after the 6am Eucharist as we continue to celebrate the resurrection with a special brunch

The Easter Candle has been given in memory of David Gowty, by the Gowty and Saylor families.

Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord.  Let light perpetual shine on him. 

First Communion: The rite of First Communion will be offered in May, with preparation occurring before then. Please see Sue if you are interested in your child/grandchild participating in this preparation, which will also be helpful for those young people already receiving communion but who may be ready for a new stage of understanding.

Election Day – at last we now have a date for the Federal Election – Saturday, 18 May 2019 May.  Obviously, lots of help will be needed so please make a note to try to allocate some time to help on the cake stall, the book stall, the raffle/s or the sausage sizzle.   We will also need help on Friday, 17 May during the morning  to sort and price the books.  The request for help list will be available nearer the time.   This is our opportunity to raise some well needed funds.  Thank you.

Anglican Board of Mission Lenten Appeal: Supporting St John’s Anglican Seminary of Zambia. Please give via the purple ABM envelopes (on table near entrance) to support clergy training in Zambia.

Easter – please consider donating towards the cost of the Easter Flowers and, as mentioned, the cost of the dry cleaning of the white/green banners, which has proved an expensive proposition because there are also repairs needed to be carried out.  Please place your donation in an envelope and mark the envelope EASTER FLOWERS AND BANNERS.

On the Way- The cruciform pattern – How do we move from faith as a fixed set of beliefs to a transformative event that transforms and renews our life? And how can living into the events of Holy Week and the new day of Easter together change us in ways that can be different every time we enter this old story? Dom Fay, Peter Catt and Sue Wilton explore the journey of Lent and the cruciform pattern that plays out in our lives in surprising and holy ways.
