MU Focus for the week: Servanthood  

Jesus did something that no Jewish man would do, washing his friends’ feet –far too grotty & far too up close & personal. This was meant to be an identifying witness action for his followers! Are we expected to go against convention to follow his example? We all know people who put themselves out of their comfort zone to help at the drop in centre, visit the prison. MU members in Papua New Guinea are seeking to turn the tide on the negative effects of gender-based violence. They work on projects to educate men on shared responsibility and mutual respect in the hope of lowering domestic

violence levels. 2/3 of women are affected. We thank God for their commitment to follow Jesus’

example of servanthood.

Thank you for your support.  Everyone really appreciates the food you are donating for emergency bags and

Lunch Box Angels  
Please donate suitable snacks and boxed drinks or cash.


Please let Gail know if you would like a visit, or for someone you know at home or in hospital for prayer, communion or anointing or simply a chat over a cup of tea.

Gail is not available Tuesday  unless it is an emergency but otherwise is happy to come when available. 


Several parishioners have met with Gail to choose the hymns and readings for their funerals and other liturgy requests for such a service. The information is then kept on file to assist family members with their planning when the time comes. Please consider doing this whatever your age or state of health, it is important that your wishes are communicated. Planning forms are available from the office.


Please consider helping as a reader, sidesperson, morning tea server or provider, MC, LA or projector operator as there are some spaces to be filled on the rosters at either service. Let Gail know if you are interested. Job descriptions are available.



If you are not in the Parish directory and would like to be included please give your details to the office.


If you would like to provide morning tea after the 9am service but do not want to cook, please give a donation of $20 in an envelope marked morning tea and give to office or put in the collection.
