1st November 2020

Today we welcome Mark and Rahel Landrum from Christian Witness to Israel. They will let us know about their work in sharing the love of Christ with the Jewish community, into which they were both born.

Last week’s weather was not really conducive to our St Jude’s Day Spring Picnic, but it was great to see the Sunday School enjoying games of quoits and Finska in the covered area outside the Parish Room. We took the opportunity to have a COVID safe morning tea in the Parish Room, and it certainly was great to be able to enjoy fellowship in this way. The wardens and I have decided that we would like to begin holding morning tea regularly after the 10 am service. For this to happen, we will need volunteers to serve morning tea and to disinfect tables and chairs afterwards. Please consider whether you could do this. Watch this space for a COVID safe morning tea training session to be held after the 10 am service sometime soon.

The October edition of Southern Cross is available online: here. I recommend the cover story, which includes some encouraging stories about what God has done through the Rugby League chaplaincy.

Both the writer of the article, Rev. Stephen Liggins, and the St George Dragons’ chaplain, Rev. Graham Crew, are people I enjoyed working with in my previous parish of Springwood.

In brief:

  • Samaritan Christmas boxed need to be in next Sunday 8th
  • Mission Prayer is on this Thursday 12 pm
  • Ramble this Friday (see inside for details)
