Parish notices – 9 December 2012

Can you help us distribute Christmas flyers?

We would like to distribute flyers in the Johnsonville area telling households about our Christmas service times. Can you help?

Belle Hough has organized routes that people can take to distribute flyers. At the back of the church are a list of these routes, a map of the area, a slip of paper with details of each route, and bundles of 50 flyers. If you think you can help, please:

1. Have a look at the list and put your name next to the route you want. (The map will help you see what area you would be covering.) if possible, please highlight the roads you are covering on the map so we know they will be done.

2. Take the slip of paper for your route, which will tell you the number of flyers you need and the streets you will cover.

3. There are flyers in bundles of 50 in a box. Please take enough flyers to cover all the streets you need.

Thank you very much for helping us with this outreach.

Can you believe 5 impossible things before Christmas?

This week we conclude our Advent Bible study, Five impossible things. We have had two interesting and thought provoking sessions. Even if you have missed these sessions, you can still come and enjoy this final session with us. All are welcome.

The session will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesdays 4 and 11 Dec in the Hunter Lounge.  Further details are available here.

Prayer meeting

Wednesday at 7.30pm. All welcome.

It will be held on 14th December in the Hall (the last event to be held in the main hall before it is closed for a few weeks for earthquake strengthening work to be carried out). We will again be keeping the cost down to simply cover the costs at $12.50. No charge for children.

Tickets are available at the 8.30am and 10.00am services, or from the office.
