THANK YOU to all elders and pastoral visitors and link deliverers who came to our meeting in November and shared ideas for improving the pastoral care in our parish. The main suggestions were

1.     We can all be involved in pastoral care, looking out for each other, meeting each other’s needs.

2.     A friendly phone call to anyone who has not been at church for a while, saying “We’ve missed you, is everything okay?”

3.      If you are aware of any need, please let us know. Phone the office, one of the ministers, or one of the pastoral committee. Beth 686 0466, Indi 684 4361, Isabel 684 3113, Robin 688 8695, Sandra 6883619.

We will implement other suggestions over the course of the year when possible.

Mission Group Update:

  • Family Works: We have had advice from Family Works regarding the Food Bank, and they are fairly well stocked with breakfast cereals at present but are in need of such things as spreads and jams to have on bread or toast.
  • Buy & Supply News: The funds raised on our two Buy and  Supply tables this month will go to Family Support ( formerly Birthright ) for help with prescription costs, and also essential health items such as cough mixture. Over the            December/January period $84 was raised and this has been forwarded to   Family Works for help with school uniforms. Please support the Mission Group’s worthwhile initiative by buying, supplying or both!

Giving  Everything that we have is a gift from God.

You can contribute financially in the following ways:

  • Cash, cheque or envelope in the offering plate, thanks.
