Halloween – The next Kid’s Church event after that is Halloween when we combine the Christian memorial to the dead with the more commercial aspect of fun and games. This will be held on October 31 from 4-5:30pm in the Columbarium and on the lawn.
Building Committee – We are looking to create a team of people who might be prepared to manage repairs and maintenance for our buildings and give advice to the Treasurer with regard to the budget requirements.
Early Morning Service – The 7:00am service on Thursday has resumed. This is a wonderful way to start the day, please join us.
Church Linen – Some time ago I was given a quantity of Irish linen that was to be used to make linen for the church. Irish linen is of a very high quality and is hard to purchase. I have made a few purificators (used to wipe the cup) but would like to see the linen used and not left to languish in a draw. I’d love to hear from seamstresses who could give a hand. (Hand sewing is preferred, but most items made today are machine sewn.) – Marian
St Augustine’s Commemorative Lapel Pins now available
In recognition of the church embarking on its next 100 years, a lapel pin with magnetic fixture (no damage to garments) has been created to acknowledge the milestone. The enamel-on- metal pin reflects the St Augustine’s shield, in colour, and is available for purchase from the office or by order form. The proceeds will be directed to church funds, particularly the Restoration Fund and to charitable disbursements in the community.
At $8 each, this affordable memento can be yours.
We don’t have to tell you that the situation is constantly changing. Please remember that there are specific requirements for churches so it is important not to rely solely on news reports. As you will have noted we are keeping the signage on the pews so that we can quickly adapt to the changing circumstances.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and following advice. If you have any questions, could you direct them to the Covid Warden, Daniel Aspinall
