SOUP LUNCH  – SUNDAY 23rd JUNE

We will be having a soup lunch after the Family Service on Sunday 23rd June.  We are needing a few people to make a big pot of soup and bring it in on the morning of the 23rd.  Please let Alice or Bronwyn know if you can help. Plan to stay around after the service and enjoy some yummy soups and time together.

THANK YOU – PLAYGROUP MORNING TEA

A big thank you to those who prayed for, made food, and helped to serve at our playgroup’s Mothers’ Day morning teas this last week. The families were so thankful to be looked after with such generosity and kindness by the church family. I am so very grateful for your help in making this event not only possible but incredibly special and a beautiful witness to our playgroup community. Sarah Ames
