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.

Donations to REAL Inc. P.O. Box 7021, Lismore Heights 2480.

Information: Chairperson: Ph 02 6624 2924

Welcome to all as we gather to honour and worship the one true God. Please join us for a cuppa in the hall next door after the services

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


Almighty God,

whose blessed Son before his passion prayed for his disciples

that they might be one, as you and he are one:

grant that your Church,

being bound together in love and obedience to you,

may be united in one body by the one Spirit,

that the world may believe in him whom you have sent,

your Son Jesus Christ our Lord;

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of 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
