KEN PETERSEN – On-line screening details of Ken’s funeral
Ken was farewelled in a beautiful service at Holy Trinity on Wednesday 9 June, led by Father Noel. Unfortunately due to covid restrictions only 10 mourners were allowed to attend. The family organised a live-stream of the service which is still available if anyone would like to view it. https://vimeo.com/559748846/db28d36354
CHURCH GIVING AND THE PARISH FINANCES
Owing to the Covid protocols, the Sunday 10am Service attendance has been slow to recover despite being permitted to have 30 people at worship. As a result the collections have been reduced and the parish finances suffering. Can I encourage our parishioners to contribute on a regular basis by using the banking details below. Apart from the Op Shop, all of our fundraising efforts have been suspended, so the need is considerable. Noel
