Long time parishioner Lachie McKinnon told News Of The Area, “Our annual garage sale and market day, held over two weekends, raises around $4000 and this goes to the Josifus Bible College in New Delhi, India.”

“On top of this, our monthly sausage sizzle at the shopping centre nets around $300 and we use these funds to assist Jacqui Wood to fit out classrooms at a mission in Gono New Guinea.”

Jacqui and her coffee enterprise funnels profits to this worthy cause.

Apart from its Sunday service at 9.30 am, the church operates a Wednesday play group; Thursday is given over to a ‘Community Meals 4U’ starting at 12 noon and Friday’s youth group kicks off at 7.00pm.

A special one off ‘ERAS back to the ’50s’ games and dress-up day is planned for Saturday 15 July between 3pm and 6pm.

All enquiries can be made via Rev Anthony Gentle on 49823022.
