BAKERS DELIGHT BREAD COLLECTION

Our Parish has an important Outreach Programme which helps a lot of people in our community. On Thursday evenings, we collect the unsold bread from Baker’s Delight in Meadow Springs at 07.15pm and deliver it to our OP Shop Friday morning by 08.30am. I need a couple of extra people as collectors for the roster which would require a commitment of 2 or 3 collections over a 6 month period. A wagon or SUV would be needed as a small car would not be capable of collecting all the bread. If you would like to help, please contact John Geoghegan by email, jomageo117@gmail.com as the next roster starts at the beginning of July.

MANY THANKS

Many many thanks to all those of you who have been praying for me since I fell and fractured my jaw. After seeing the Doctor this week, I may eat more regular food, but no steak for a few weeks. All I long for is a ham and salad sandwich! My love and blessings to you all. Rev. Hilary

HELP TO PRUNE THE ROSES

On Wednesday 29th June we are hoping to have a rose pruning day. Our usual rose pruner is retiring and is only able to help in an advisory capacity. He has however been training an apprentice (me) who has bought an electric pruner so is happy to do the pruning on the day. This project generates a lot of waste which needs collecting up and placed in a trailer, which in turn needs taking to the dump and dumping.

We need help with this job. It needs 3-4 people to collect the rubbish and do the dump run while I prune. Weather permitting the plan is to start 8.30am to 9 am and it should only take about 3-4 hours. If you can help out please let me know. Canon Ian.

SERVICE HELP

We need help with the Children’s Church over the coming months. While Sandy is away and several of our usual helpers are sick or caring for sick relatives we are a bit thin on the ground on Sundays at the 10am service. If you are able to help please speak with Canon Ian or Sandy.

We also need PowerPoint operators across all our Sunday services. It is not difficult and we will give you training. It is just a matter of following the service and pressing a button at the right time. If we get enough people you will only be needed once a month. As we are close to finalising our rosters please let Wendy know as soon as possible if you can assist.

CHILDREN'S CHURCH IS HAPPENING

On Sunday 26th June at our 10am service we will relaunch our Children’s Church. We are hoping to gather outside for games and a BBQ after the service, but may switch this to inside if the weather is not suitable.

For catering purposes please contact Sandy on 0407 385 818 or via email at sandywillsher86@gmail.com to let us know that you are coming and if you are able to help with the games.

We are looking for more people to offer to be Storytellers and Gatekeepers (support helpers) for our Godly Play program each Sunday once Children’s Church has recommenced.

There are two Godly Play Core Trainings being planned for later this year but you don’t have to wait until you are formally trained to start helping out. We will give you all the support you need

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO COVID MANAGEMENT

Masks are longer mandatory in the church, Op Shop or Anglican Community Centre, however:

Masks are encouraged where physical distancing isn’t possible and when you are likely to be in the company of vulnerable people.

If you are a close contact of a person with Covid, although you are no longer required to isolate,

you are required to avoid high risk settings, non-essential gatherings and contact with people at risk of severe illness

to undertake a daily Rapid Antigen Test and

to wear a mask when away from home.

Please respect those of our parish family who choose to continue to wear a mask and to socially distance from others.

Members of groups who use the church during the week are asked to wipe down tables and chairs at the end of their activities as well as any other high touch surfaces group members may have been in contact with.

RETURN OF COMMUNICATION IN TWO KINDS

It is hoped that the return of Communion in two kinds will be possible later this month. This will be for services in the church only at this stage, with the reintroduction of the Common Cup. Intincting will not be offered as it is considered to be too high a risk.

Parishioners will be able to choose whether to receive communion in one or two kinds and will be supported in their choice to continue to receive the bread only, or to receive both the bread and the wine. Please speak to Canon Ian or Revd Jacqui if you have any questions.

POP UP MORNING TEA

A fantastic Cancer Fundraiser was held on Wednesday 18th May. Thank you to the Dudley Park Bowling Club for the use of their premises when inclement weather meant it couldn't be held in the church grounds and so instead of a pop up we had a pop in. Thank you to everyone who gave up their time. Thank you so much to our entertainers Dee Gibbs, Midnight Rose(Shevonne and Jo), Voices in Harmony and Sandy Targett. Thank you to all our volunteers and cake makers. You all did a wonderful job and we made over our target, which was even better. Blessings, Sandra Keelty.

Many thanks also to Sandra, Helen Buhler and Sally Bone who organised this fundraiser on behalf of our parish.
