SAFE CHURCH

Thank you to all the parishioners who are involved in various ministries here in our parish and are serving the Lord with their time and talents. As part of our Diocesan safe church requirements, all volunteers are required to have a volunteer police check and Diocesan health and safety requirement checklist with their application and a food safety checklist in addition to that if they are involved in catering activities like serving tea, coffee or food.

The church office is currently working on updating these records and is reaching out to the parishioners who have these outstanding requirements. Please see Wendy at the Church office or contact Hepseba at safechurch@anglicanchurchmandurah.org.au if you have any questions.

OP SHOP

Can you help us, please? The Op-shop has run out of tip vouchers and is getting quite a bit of rubbish that needs to be taken to the tip. If you have any vouchers (either general or green waste) that you will not be using before the new rates are due, could you please let us have them? Vouchers can be left at the Church office and we will collect them from there. Many thanks, Joe and Mike.
