Thank you to you all, whether as members of the church family or neighbours in our community at North Ryde and beyond, who have supported these projects and request for help.
You have given hope to people and improved the lives of many in ways that are not calculable in dollars and cents.
There are so many ways that you can be involved in hospitality, service and giving within our congregation and community! The only step to get involved is asking or being asked. So, please let our minister know if you want to do more (or less), drop james an email and he will make sure that it lands on the right persons inbox!
