St Paul’s Burwood Pantry — Nov 2019: Every quarter we give a donation from the OpShop to St Paul’s pantry to provide for necessities that are generally not given as donations. The Parish Council decided that during November we would ask parishioners to bring a can or two of food that we as a parish could donate to the pantry. A basket will be placed in the foyer to receive your donations. Thank you.
Donations are requested for: Anglicare ‘Toys’n’Tucker’ and ‘Stanmore Nursing Home’ for Christmas Gifts. If you would like to donate money, please place it in one of the envelopes provided in the foyer. Your donations can also be placed in the Church Account by Direct Credit with ‘Toys’n’Tucker’ or ‘Stanmore Nursing Home’ as the reference. Thank you.

| ‘Domestic Abuse’ information: |
Domestic abuse is a pattern of behaviour based on using power and control over another, causing fear and intimidation. Domestic abuse is a problem in Australian families, we know it exists and its wrong. It happens in church communities too.
Our church says NO to abuse. We care about you ‑your safety is our priority. If you are experiencing domestic abuse or know someone who is, it is not your fault. You are not to blame. Support is available. Talk to someone at church you trust. You can also call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732 or the DV Hotline on 1800 656 463.
