Angel Tree
We are supporting Angel Tree again this year.  Angel Tree Christmas nurtures the precious link between a prisoner and their children by providing nearly 4,000 Christmas Gifts to children every year from their incarcerated parent.  

If you would like to purchase a $25 Warehouse Voucher on behalf of a prisoner for their child, please select a name off the board at the side of the church.  Warehouse vouchers can be purchased through Countdown or The Warehouse.  Please return the voucher together with the Angel Tree tab in an envelope on Sunday, 27 November.  For the child receiving the gift voucher it shows that their Mum or Dad hasn't forgotten them and still cares about them.  For more information contact Maree ph 938 7864.
