Around the Parish

Next Sunday morning, June 14 there will be a Food and Plant Stall. So it’s not too congested in the foyer, everything will be displayed outside on the northern side of the building. This is a regular event with cakes, biscuits, jams, confectionery etc. as well as plants and produce for sale. All cooking is to be labelled with the ingredients. Proceeds go to the building fund. You may also have seen a green A4 sized sheet of paper in the foyer with the heading “get involved”. Last week in Adam’s sermon we heard of the fruits of the Spirit but also touched on the gifts we are all given in various degrees. We are always looking for volunteers, and sometimes our gifts aren’t utilised as they should be. If you think you may like to become more involved in serving at St Barts, pick up a form, pray about what God is asking of you and follow through. That’s where the Holy Spirit may just be giving you a nudge. You can also view and complete the volunteer form on our website: http://stbarts.com.au/teams/

Last Sunday, our mission partner was the Warrego and Maranoa Anglican District in the west. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Rev’d Ron was heading to Cunnamulla to perform a baptism. Ron is looking forward to meeting with Steffan van Munster who looks after this vast region, but is limited in what he can do. So Ron and his able assistant John Newport saddled up on Saturday morning at dawn to ride west. We will hear more of the adventure no doubt on Ron’s return. We hope that this is just the start of our involvement with the west.
