Our Ken Recognised for Community Work
Ken Flavell, editor of the weekly newsheet, church council member, regular worship assistant and ready volunteer for just about anything needing attention, was recognised recently for his work in the community with a Regional Achievement & Community Award.
In particular, the work that led to the award was Ken’s work, with three of his mates from the Leopold Men’s Shed, with the students of Moolap Primary School.
Plant Sale Blossoms Despite the Wind
It waa a warm, very windy day, so all the items for sale had to be moved into the church building, but it did not stop the shoppers, and the day was hugely successful, thanks to a hard-working group of volunteers. Plants left-over at the end of the day were donated to the Anglican Church, which is having its garden sale next weekend. If you missed out, be sure to put it in your 2019 diary on Nov 1st.

Saints, the Lot of ’em
All Saints Day observance was used to recognise the myriad of volunteers who make the congregation and the Op Shop so successful. This special worship service was followed by the usual special feast. (Click here or on the photo (left) to see more.)
The weekly Wednesday afternoon Bible study is now available online to those who have missed out. (See link on the left side menu, or click here) The style of study used is pretty unique, and designed to appeal to both religious and non-religious people alike. Pioneered by the Guild for Psychological Studies in San Francisco, it was brought to Australia by the Uniting Church’s Division of Field Services in the 90s and run as the ‘Nexus’ program. Rev. Bob was one of only a handful of people who went through the extensive training to be a facilitator, and he brings a sample to you here.
