advent 1Tomorrow morning at 10.00am, we join with the Knox Presbyterian Congregation to celebrate the first Sunday in Advent and the launch of the 70th CWS Christmas Appeal.  We will also share in a Service of Holy Communion.  Then, after all that, we will have morning tea in the lounge.

And – this morning we received a letter of gratitude from Loreen McDonald, Principal at John Wesley School, Eshowe, South Africa, thanking us for our donation to their Bursary Fund, which “was put in place to help learners who might not have the financial means to continue with their education at John Wesley School. Many of our beneficiaries are orphans, or come from families that have been impacted by the harsh economic times we find ourselves in.”

She included this recent photos of some of their Grade 4 boys on an overnight outing to the Mtunzini “Twinstreams” Forest, the oldest environmental education centre in KwaZula-Natal –
