Not wanting to emulate the shops, however given the slower delivery rates of letters through Australia Post these days, those of you who still like to send Christmas cards may be interested in the charity cards we have available.
Val Grills, our Leprosy Mission “champion”, is ordering cards through the mission to sell to our regular church supporters this year. If you would like to place an order through the church, please send an email to the office and we will let you know what is available once Val’s order has arrived. You can also support the Leprosy Mission through their online shop here:
They have some beautiful and useful items available which would make great gifts for the people you’re missing. Our friends at the Leprosy Mission have called to let us know that they are praying for us and to offer their support – some of you may remember the visit of Tim and Amar last year to share the good news of the work they are doing to help people with Leprosy overcome discrimination and have a good quality of life.
Uniting Christmas cards are available in packs of 10 for $10 from the office on Tuesdays and Fridays. Cards can be dropped off to you in the 3216 postcode.
Uniting World is working with our church partners in other countries to try to limit the impacts of COVID-19 as well as other work of poverty mitigation and peace building. You can support their work through purchasing gift cards which represent things like health care or school packs, or goats and chickens!
If you’d like to place an order, you can check the online “Everything in Common” gift catalogue here:
and email the office to place your order and organise payment – or simply shop online! We do have gift cards left over from last year here at the church.
