REAL    help needed Urgently !!!

Chaplaincy funding is now for ONE day a week only.

The need and desire in the schools is for this ministry to continue to grow.

We have indicated to our Teacher/Chaplains we may need to cut one a day a week from each at the end of Term 2.

Additional local funding can avert this; so we make this appeal now.

Your prayers, promotion and support is appreciated.

4000 Mouths to Feed

Can you help?

Did you know that for over 10 years, a committed team [including people from Lismore Anglican Parish and other local churches] has been feeding about 4000 hungry people a year at the Lismore Soup Kitchen (Winsome) on a Sunday? That’s a miracle!

The aim is to feed about 80 patrons for Sunday lunch, giving the regular Soupie cooks a day off. As one of 3 rostered cooks, you would prepare a meal for about 25 people in your own home using sausages provided by the Soup Kitchen, then adding vegetables, rice, pasta etc. according to your personal recipe (aluminium trays are best).

You would ensure the meal is delivered to the Soup Kitchen by 10.30am Sunday morning in time for Sunday lunch. Sausages may be collected from Alan and Sue’s home in Girard’s Hill after 8am Fridays. Currently your roster commitment would be roughly once every 4-5 weeks.

If you would like to be involved in this rewarding ministry to the interior please talk to Alan or Sue 66213200.

Congregation Response to the Two Great Commandments:

Lord, have mercy on us: and write your law in our hearts by your Holy Spirit.



We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.


Gracious God,

you sent Jesus, the good shepherd,

to gather us together:

may we not wander from his flock,

but follow wherever he leads us,

listening for his voice and staying near him,

until we are safely in your fold,

to live with you for ever;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen


A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
