St Paul’s to Host the Bible Society Bi-Centenary

On 15th October from 12 noon to 5-30pm all parishioners are invited to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Bible Society in Australia.

The celebration involves a display of magnificent Bibles, (some over 400 years old) in St Paul’s church, an Antique Bible Roadshow when family and other Bibles brought by parishioners and their friends will be appraised by noted Bible Scholar and author Rev Dr John Harris, culminating in a Choral Evensong at 6pm with Dr Harris as guest preacher.

Afternoon tea will be provided, and all donations received will be devoted to the work of the Bible Society in SE Asia and the Pacific.

Volunteers to help with welcoming, ushering, supervising, and afternoon tea refreshments are requested. Phone David Dillon 0251007808, or email to register your interest in being a volunteer.

Thank you

Thank you to St Paul’s for hosting the recent Workshop Behind the News: Palestinian Christians and Theology.

A special thank you to Les Böhm and Claudia Hyles. Participants learnt more about the situation in Palestine and Israel including the work of Anglican Overseas Aid.

$350 was raised for Anglican Overseas Aid Projects: the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza and children’s therapy programs at the Spafford Children’s Centre in East Jerusalem with outreach to the West Bank.
