The Quilt Raffle

The Refugee Support Team would like to thank the many people who contributed to the wonderful result of $1,185 which will go towards supporting refugees in our community.

Again we thank Eileen Sykes and Beth Lee for the beautiful quilt and also the Kings for donating the suitcase.

The quilt was won by Catherine Evans and the suitcase by Robyn Schleiger.

Donations to the Verandah

Thanks to the St Pauls parishioners who generously donate food and other goods for distribution at the Verandah in the Stuart Flats.

This is greatly appreciated by the residents. We always need tinned soup; tinned meat and vegetable stews; tinned fish especially tuna; long life milk; baked beans and pasta sauce as well as cereal, pasta, noodles, coffee, tea bags and milo. Donated items can be left at the back of the church.

Cash donations are also appreciated and can be placed in an envelope marked “Verandah” and put in the collection plate, handed in at the parish office or given to the Verandah volunteer coordinator.

Making Reconciliation Real

Reconciliation with Aboriginal people is something that everyone can share.

Join in an evening with Bob Slockee from Australians Together and people from parishes from across northern Canberra to talk about ways in which we can make reconciliation real where we live.

The evening will be led by the Public Issues Commission and held in the worship centre at Holy Covenant Jamieson on Thursday 14th September from 7.30pm.

Thank you to all who have contributed to Bob’s support in the last few weeks.

To mark 90th anniversary of the founding of the RSCM will be held on 10th September 2017 at 3pm at Wesley Uniting Church, National Circuit, Forrest.
