Election Day Market: We will be having a parish cake stall at the Election Day Market at Caversham this Saturday, 23rd September. We welcome your donations of cakes, squares, loaves, cheese rolls, savoury items etc etcplease bring into the office on Friday 22nd September or early on the Saturday.


Mowing of Caversham Church Lawns: With the current volunteers down to just 3, we are looking for people who would be prepared to go on a roster to mow the 3 pieces of lawn round the Caversham buildings. One more person would mean each would be required for an hour every 8 weeks, while two more would lighten the load to once every 10 weeks.  In the given week, you may do the lawns at a time that suits you - and the weather. The motor mower and fuel are supplied. Please give this some thought and contact Wendy at the church office or June on 487 7293 if you are willing to help.


Advance Voting: is available in the Sidey Hall complex on week days until Friday 22nd.   If your group is meeting in the halls during the fortnight leading to the elections, please be mindful of the polling booth in the complex and leave the parks adjacent to the ramp entrance for those requiring level access to the polling booth. 


World Vision Child Sponsorship: The new donor year for our sponsored child began on 1st August and an updated donor list is on the back table. Those who have supported this mission in the past will find their names on the list but we also welcome others to be involved. An annual donation of $22 per donor should cover our annual commitment to Jyoti in India. Thank you all for your support.

Guest speaker will be Rev Tim Pratt, National Manager of ICHC. All welcome. RSVP for catering to Frances on 474 0999 xtn 58130 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
