ANGLICAN OVERSEAS AID APPEAL TO ASSIST INDONESIA
The Archbishop of Melbourne recently wrote to parishes regarding the earthquake and tsunami that hit the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia in September.
“…The disaster has put the area in a state of crisis. The people affected find themselves in a desperate situation, with immediate needs of food, safe shelter, basic health services and drinking water and sanitation…
Donations will help bring immediate relief to the people suffering from this disaster… To keep up to date with the latest emergency news or to donate to this Emergency Appeal please visit https://anglicanoverseasaid.org.au/indonesia-tsunami/.
Please pray for all who have been affected by this disaster and for those who are providing aid.”

The Op Shop will open regularly on Saturdays – 11am to 2pm. We need good quality clothing for sale – men’s, women’s children’s, all styles and varieties plus shoes etc. Other items of bric-a-brac are also welcome. Goods can be left at the church during opening hours. Volunteers to help on a roster are also welcomed!!
HOLY TRINITY FETE – Saturday November 24!
Save the date! The Holy Trinity Fete will be held on Saturday November 24 – the same day as the State Election! We will need all hands on deck to make our fete a great community day with a variety of stalls. This is only six weeks away so please start thinking of how you can help!
CALLING ALL JAM, MARMALADE AND CHUTNEY MAKERS!
We are hoping to have a table of home-made jams, marmalade and chutneys for sale on the day of the fete, as these items have been VERY popular in the past. For anyone requiring jars, there are a number being stored in the vicarage.
