LENTEN STUDIES
Our study this year is “Look to Jesus, 52 reflections for Lent and Easter”, published by the Diocese of Queensland. I have used their resources many times and they are very good.

The books should be here in about 2 weeks and the cost will be $5. I have ordered 60 copies, so if you would like a copy, you will need to be quick! The Friday morning group will use this resource, but I know that it will be a wonderful resource for anyone who would like to follow a Lenten guide.

Also in Lent, I will be holding a weekly Christian meditation on Thursday afternoons at 2pm. It will last for about an hour. Contrary to popular belief, meditation is not about eastern religions or hippies! Christian meditation is an ancient practice involving some prayer, some scripture and some silence and contemplation as we wait on God. There is no cost. Further information to follow and I hope that you can join me. Rev Cheryl.

YOUTH CLUB

THE BELL RINGERS ARE BACK

Practice is usually during the week and the bells are rung each Sunday morning at 9.30am. For more information please ring Roger on 0412 199 956 or Janine on 0417 986 562.

COMMUNITY KITCHEN
Donations for our local community kitchen are always welcome. Breakfast and lunch are served Mon-Fri to people in need within our community. Take-aways and food parcels are also provided. The most useful items are teabags, sugar, coffee, sauces (tomato and bbq—as well as pasta sauces), pasta, rice, UHT milk, and small boxes of cereal such as Wheatbix. Donations can be placed in baskets at the back of the church.

EfM
Another year of EfM is about to start and we would love to welcome new members to our group. In Year One you study the Old Testament as well as joining in group discussion and theological reflection with our Year two and three members.

We will commence our EfM year with a get together on Monday 25th January at 3pm in the church.

This is a chance for prospective Year One participants and Year Two and Three re-enrolling participants to meet together and to discuss the year's program. Coming along to does not commit you to enrolling in EfM. It is a chance to gather more information and to have any questions answered.

Enrollments will need to be finalised by 31st January to enable folders to be received from EfM Australia and text books for Year One to be ordered. If you would like to know more, please speak to Fr Ian or Wendy.

FREEWILL OFFERING
To support our on going work, you are able to make an online freewill offering to our Anglican Parish of Mandurah account:

BSB: 706-001
Acc: 30004522

A donation point has been established on our web page for those who would like to make use of this facility. There is also a tap and go Eftpos in the foyer of the church pre-set to $10. which you can use any credit or debit card to make your donation. Just tap as many times as you like and it will make a donation in lots of $10. There is also a normal Eftpos machine at the back of the church .

MISSION GIVING
For the month of January our mission focus is Boniface Care. Money donated through the envelopes will go this mission. Giving envelopes are available at the back of the church.

USED POSTAGE STAMPS FOR MISSIONS AND RING PULLS FOR PROSTHETICS.
As you know our Parish has for many years been collecting used postage stamps for Missions. Fr Joe and Wendy gather the stamps that are placed in the container at the back of the Church and sort them to be distributed to either ABM, CMS or the Mission to Seafarers. Each of these organisations package them for sale, and the funds raised are used to support various missionaries in the field or Mission projects. Before bringing the stamps to Church please cut around both the stamp and the postmark on the envelope, making sure that you do not damage the stamp itself.

With the new initiative of cash for cans, we can get twice the value, if you are prepared to take a little time. Not only can we get 10cents per can, but the ring pulls, if removed from the cans, can also be donated to support the making of prosthetics for those who have lost a limb. With this we work in
conjunction with a local Rotary Club to recycle the ring pulls. Simply place them into a bag and leave them in the appropriate container at the back of the Church please.
Corks can no longer be recycled. Any corks that are brought along to the Church will now be donated to a local centre who are happy to use them in craft projects.

PLEASE CHECK THE PIGEON HOLES FOR UNCOLLECTED CHRISTMAS CARDS AND SAFE CHURCH NOTICES
