Small groups: There has been for some time a feeling within the parish that it would be good for us to have some ‘small groups’ in our midst. The purpose of these typically is to share the journey down the road of faith and life with one another in a smaller setting.

We are fortunate to now have some people who are willing to host and lead a group and are putting the word out for those who think they would like to take part. We have a number of ideas in mind so these groups strike a balance between being ‘lightweight’ and meaningful.  If you would like to join a small group or find out some more information, please let Dan know. We are aiming to begin in Term 3.

Village Leisure Group:  This month we have a speaker who will enlighten us about the Neighbourhood Support organisation on Wednesday, 7 July at 1pm at the Village – Bryndwr. Afternoon tea provided. All welcome!

Giving to The Village:  Some wonderful things happen through The Village, and people giving financially is an important way to support both our church activities and the initiatives we run to serve our communities.  An offering is made available during our Sunday worship but you are also welcome to give by automatic payment or envelope which means you can claim a tax credit of 33% for your donation.  Please contact Keren R. or Donella D. for more information.
