Lent Soup Suppers – Tuesdays in Lent

Soup Suppers will be held at the Parish Hall, Crafers, on Tuesday March 7 and Tuesday 14 March, until building commences on the Hall project. Then they will move to Bridgewater.

Into the Desert combines Australian history and literature with the centuries old wisdom of Desert monasticism. It is written by ABM’s Reconciliation Coordinator Celia Kemp, who draws on her own experience of living in the Australian desert to create a truly special publication.

Saturday September 17th at 3.00pm The Kapelle Singers will be presenting an Afternoon of Music at the Church of the Epiphany followed by food and drink in the hall. A gold coin donation would be welcome.
