Notices — Sunday 23rd August — Confirmation Service


Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Con­firmees: Nam, Alex, Lucy and Nicholas.

Thank you to Bish­op Michael and Feli­city for being with us on this happy occasion.

Fr Jeff is happy to com­mence a reg­u­lar even­ing ser­vice on Sundays at, say 6.00 p.m.  Please let him know if you would be inter­ested in being part of that or not.  If there is no need or no interest, then he will not go ahead with this.

Get In Touch with Fr. Jeff if you are strug­gling with the present situ­ation or are in need of pray­ers for friends/family.  The Wed­nes­day heal­ing ser­vice is a good oppor­tun­ity to come to Church to pray for heal­ing and peace for your­self and loved ones.

Remem­ber Mis­sion Giv­ing: The Par­ish sup­ports sev­er­al mis­sion pro­jects through giv­ing to the ABM.  You can give to the ABM in the fol­low­ing ways:

  • by cash placed in an envel­ope marked ‘ABM’ and placed in the col­lec­tion plate as you leave.

In the cur­rent cir­cum­stances, our mis­sion agen­cies, like the churches, are in great­er need.  Please remem­ber to sup­port ABM.
