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 electronic transfer to the St Luke’s bank account (see last page of this booklet), with “ABM” in the note.
- by credit card – click ‘Giving’ on the St Luke’s website and select ABM from the dropdown menu.
- 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.
