STEWARDSHIP CORNER – MAY 6, 2018, 6th SUNDAY            OF EASTER

“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” – John 15:12-13

Do you love Jesus? Do you consider Him your friend? Jesus says that if we love Him we would be willing to offer whatever we have to Him, not because we want praise and glory, but simply because we love Him. Does your giving seem mechanical out of obligation or do you share freely out of love?

 

Movie Night

A big Thank You to all those who attended our movie night on April 20, 2018. We collected $320 which as we have advised will go towards Young Adults activities. Thank you to the parishioner who donated a crate of Pepsi cans. Your generosity is very much appreciated. Our next movie night is scheduled for June 11 which is a public holiday. We hope you all can be there and support us in our ministry. If you would like to join, help or donate please call Angelique on 0420388231. Young Adults Group.

 

CHURCH REFURBISHMENT

Unfortunately our refurbishment program has been delayed as the Contractor has to safely detach electric cables in the roof of the entrance foyer which was unable to be identified before. This has necessitated the service of Powercor, the earliest of which was available only on May 4, 2018. Work was temporarily stopped but has recommenced. There is expected to be a 4 to 6 week delay but we are working with the Contractor to get the work completed with minimal delay. We will keep parishioners posted on further developments. Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this regard. - Project Team.
