Presbyterian Support needs you! OCTACAN, now in its 9th year, takes place on Thursday 22 June; in addition to the call-out for cans, this year PSO is doing a street collection along George Street and at local supermarkets from 9.00 to 3.00pm. We are a looking for smiling volunteers to shake a bucket for and hour or so. All funds donated on the day will go towards purchasing food for the foodbank throughout the year. Money is very important to the foodbank as it allows us to buy perishable food, to supplement the tinned items we distribute.
Thanks for supporting PSO in this way.
Power and Gas offer for the staff, volunteers, friends and family of Presbyterian Churches: Presbyterian Churches is working with Nice1 to deliver you savings on your power and gas as they did earlier this year with many of our churches. In 2016 we saved Presbyterian Churches on average 22% on power and gas costs. This opportunity is now open to individuals connected to Presbyterian Churches. Nice1 will tender your account to the main selected retailers and present you with the best deal. And even better, it’s free even if you switch your power. To find out more please talk to Wendy in the parish office.
