Par­ish Coun­cil Meets today after the 9.30am ser­vice and morn­ing tea.


The Par­ish Coun­cil has agreed to raise funds to install an addi­tion­al bench seat in our car­park garden in memory of Fr Ron Mor­ris.  Fr Ron, who died in April 2017, was loved by all who knew him and came to our par­ish when he retired and lived at St John’s Vil­lage, Glebe.  He acted as locum in our par­ish on many occa­sions and had a long and act­ive his­tory with ABM.  Dona­tions are there­fore sought towards the $1500 cost of the bench seat.  If you would like to donate, please pay dir­ectly to the church account as lis­ted on the back of the pew sheet (ref­er­ence Fr Ron Mor­ris) or place your dona­tion in an envel­ope in the offer­tory with the same reference.


New Offer­tory Envel­opes sets for July 2024 onwards are now avail­able in the church foyer.
