Last day for Lydia
This Thursday 24th December is Lydia Milliken’s last day as our church secretary. We give thanks to God for her service over the past twelve years, and pray for her as she increases her role in the family business.
Personal Assistant appointed
We are delighted to announce that Valerie O’Regan has accepted our invitation to be the ‘Personal Assistant (PA) to the Senior Minister’. This new-look role is for the equivalent of four days per week. She will begin this role on the 25th January.
Jodie and his family will be on leave from the afternoon of 25th December, and will return on 7th January. Graham Errington will be leading our parish during this time.
During the five Sundays after Christmas, we will be hearing from a range of local and guest preachers on a variety of topics, before we commence a new sermon series in Term One. Next Sunday we welcome Graham Errington as our preacher.
Each week we need to receive $5,000 in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was $3,888, leaving a gap of $1,112.
Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $260,000. Compared to that total we received $224,000, leaving a gap of $36,000.
Electronic giving is a great way to give! It helps us prayerfully plan our giving, and then the bank will help us keep that commitment, even when we may be unable to attend.
