Rebuilding Maniava
The KAC Missions Committee has decided to support the rebuilding of the village of Maniava in northeast Viti Levu, Fiji.  They lost 35 out of 37 homes in Tropical Cyclone WINSTON early 2016 and are doing the rebuild as money becomes available.  We have a sum of $684 was being held in the event of another cyclone before the end of this year but it has been decided to send this money now to Fiji to support the buying of building materials for Maniava.

Meals Needed!
The pastoral freezer has had a real work-out over the past few months, providing meals for those in need in our community. Why not get together with your home group, huddle, friends or family and cook a few meals to re-stock the freezer? Contact Zoё in the Parish Office for containers and stickers.

Opportunities to Help
We need someone to change the altar hangings as the church calendar changes.  Another person to oversee the gathering area kitchen.  You will need tact, the ability to organise, willingness to clean and you will get the last word on how the space runs!  Contact Zoё for more information.
