Let us pray we have seen the worst of the winter season as we all look forward to Spring in a couple of weeks! I extend a special invitation to all parishioners to attend our Thanksgiving Service next Sunday 30 August at 10am in the Main Church. This will be the only service for the day and it is an important occasion for us to give thanks to God for all that God has provided us and our community over the last twelve months. At this service there will be an opportunity for you to place your stewardship response forms on the Lord’s Table and for these to be blessed as we all pledge ourselves to what God requires of us in the next year. Over morning tea in the hall there will be a Ministry Marketplace where you have the chance to talk to various coordinators of the many roles and responsibilities and ministry tasks done in God’s name in our parish. Take the opportunity to learn first-hand what goes into some of the jobs that go on in the parish.
