Westchurch Camp 2010

..
5 - 7 March 2010
at Woodend Camp
124 Beach Road Woodend

This is a great chance for our community to spend
a relaxed weekend together having fun, learning
together and being challenged about our lives and
practices. Whether you come as a day visitor or
immerse yourself fully in the experience by staying
at the camp we hope you will find some time to join
us in this opportunity for fellowship and growth.

Our speaker: Graeme Reid

Graeme was employed at Spreydon Baptist Church for 24 years,
ten of those were on the pastoral team. His main role was
establishing and managing Community Ministries.
Graeme established a community fellowship for people with
special needs, pastoring the fellowship from 1987 to 2004.
In 2005 he visited Cambodia, Manila and Calcutta as a Chaplain
for Servants Mission.
Currently he is working for the Baptist Union as a Community
Ministries consultant and managing a service supporting young people
7yrs to 15yrs who live in a home where a parent has a mental illness.

Highly recommended. Come and be inspired!

Setup

Two notices re Setup.

1. Communion plastic cups – as agreed at the last church meeting, these are to be rinsed and sent to recycling after each service

2. Set up and Keys – if you have the keys and blue book, please contact and pass them on to the next person on the set-up list. This is particularly important if you have swapped with someone else and your name and date of set-up no longer match. Taking this action will be of huge service to those next on the list.
