Special Appeal for Lunch@Sidey: during October we are inviting members of the parish to contribute in support of our very successful community mission, Lunch@Sidey. Many of you generously provide soup for this Thursday lunch, and we receive bread and vegetables from Foodshare. However, we regularly need to purchase tea, coffee, sugar, milk, margarine etc and our funds are now running low.
If you are able to help support the lunch in this way, please place your donation in a marked envelope with your offering any Sunday in October, or send directly to the office. Thank you.
Sunday 29th October: being a 5th Sunday, will be a combined service at Caversham, starting at 10am. Please bring a small plate for morning tea
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. An annual donation of $22 per donor should cover our annual commitment to Jyoti in India. We welcome others to be involved. Thank you all for your support.
Give Hope this Christmas: Christian World Service’s Gifted programme enables you to support one of CWS’s overseas programmes helping people build better lives for themselves and their families. Gifts include fruit trees for a Filipino family, bees for a Sri Lankan family, a water tank for a Ugandan family, goats or sheep for a Palestinian family, classroom materials for rural Haiti, medical care for Palestinian mothers etc etc. In return, you receive a gift card to give to your family or friend which shows the gift made to communities overseas. Buy online at gift.org.nz or call at the parish office for an order form. Let’s share hope this Christmas.
