Thank you Gwen
A small group of the Community Breakfast team met at the RSL last Wednesday for a cuppa and a chat with Gwen Woods. A gift was presented to Gwen by Denise Collins as a show of our appreciation for Gwen's inestimable efforts during the passage of Community Breakfast from it's inception in 2016 through to it's Covid-forced suspension earlier this year.
Gwen's "can do" approach to whatever comes her way and her amazing ability to connect with love and compassion with folk from all backgrounds has endeared her to many and has provided the tenacity that ensured the Community Breakfasts gave many folks a safe harbour for a couple of hours each week.
Later this year Gwen will be relocating to Victoria to live closer to other members of her family and our love and blessings go with her as she takes on this new adventure... Gwen will indeed be truly missed.
Florence Drury turns 100
The celebration planned for our centenarian, Florence Drury, had to be cancelled as all church activities were suspended due to the pandemic. However, as can be seen in the article below, Florence fortunately was able to celebrate her 100th birthday with family and friends just prior to the restrictions being introduced. Florence certainly is an amazing lady who has lived an amazing life, we honour her and her many achievements.
Congratulations to our oldest member Florence Drury on reaching 100!

Our Uniting Teens Easter Project has gone well.
The bags include beanies made by 4C's Craft, home made cards, crosses, poems, sayings, chocolate eggs, smarties, comics and a fun egg that grows in water all in decorative bags. The cards include Easter traditions and messages from our Congregation as well as a laminated copy of the poem Cross in my pocket.
