Next Sunday - 6pm Spirit of Taize Service
Saturday 10th December is St Luke’s Mini-Market (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and we need your help.
Each year we sell whatever you can bring – jams, pickles, cakes, biscuits, slices, plants and of course we have a good supply of bric-a-brac in our Opshop.
We also have a giant food hamper competition for which we sell tickets, and parishioners are encouraged to donate Christmas fare to put in the basket – there are lots of delicacies in the shops which would be gratefully appreciated by the winner! If we get a lot of food donations, we might have first and second prize. A very nice boxed cake has already been donated!
Thanks everyone in anticipation of your goodies!

Sat 5 Nov 2022 — St’Anmoré Music Festival Walk - starting at 12pm
Place: meet at the Church car park to walk to Stanmore
Weather: come prepared, as the walk will proceed “rain, hail or shine.”
On Saturday, 5 November 2022, Stanmore’s streets will come alive with the sound of music. The St’Anmoré Music Festival was created in honour of the late Richard Gill AO, the renowned Australian musician, conductor, and educator who lived in Stanmore, a few minutes away from the Church. He had a vision to hold an annual event to bring music to the streets. Richard Gill died in 2018 and the Festival was first held in 2019. It returns this year after a pandemic silence.
Please speak to Brett Davies TODAY if you would like to join the walk.
