What a fantastic job church family! On Sunday we had 361 boxes with a promise of another 35 to come and even more keep being dropped off. We have well and truly reached our goal of 400 boxes. That's 400 children and their families that will be blesses and also have the opportunity to hear the gospel. Continue to pray for all those that will received these shoebox gifts.

The Alliance Week of Prayer is an opportunity to pray for the work of C&MA Australia together with our Alliance family across the country.
Everyday you will receive an email or push notification of the day's prayer points. Please take the time to lift our Alliance family before the Lord in prayer.
There is currently a major upgrade of play areas in the Waramanga area. The principal landscape architect from Indesco loved seeing the kids build a fort in the open space on Sunday, (see pictured), and would like further suggestions for play spaces in the area. If you have any ideas please add them to the form and return it to the office ASAP. There may be an opportunity to place some large logs and rocks there in amongst the trees to expand its nature play potential.
Congratulations to Ps Suanu Ikoro, who was presented his Pastors Licence by C&MA President Rev Ken Graham on Sunday 16th June 2019

Identity. Who am I? Where do I fit in? Why am I here? These are questions that mankind has wrestled with since the dawn of time, and that DRASTIC will be facing head on as part of an incredible week long camp experience for high-schoolers.
Prepare yourself for an awakening of a lifetime, with incredible worship, challenging sessions, transformative experiences, friends, and wild adventures.
Would you dare to be Loved, Known and Called?
DRASTIC Camp is designed and run by Freshhope Youth, and all leaders on camp have been appropriately screened and checked. The Tops is a first class conference centre with staff who are always willing and helpful with any needs including special diets - please let us know what they are when filling out the camp registration. Campers will stay in comfortable rooms and will have plenty of opportunities to build lasting friendships with other young people - whether it be with those they’re sharing a room with or those they meet in the sessions and activities.
For year 12 students they have a specialised study camp running alongside the full camp. They designate study times each day and have a handful of teaching assistants and tutors to help with studying.

The Deacons are proposing to air condition (heat and cool) the church hall and you are invited to prayerfully consider making a contribution to the Fund for this purpose.
Please mark your contribution accordingly on an offering envelope or note it on your electronic funds transfer.
