Volunteer Driver Needed

We are still searching for someone willing to collect a shower van from Puddle Jumpers in Kilkenny, drive it to St Andrew’s in Glenelg and return it to Kilkenny following the shower service.

No special licence is needed, just a desire to help others maintain healthy hygiene and feel their best.

We can work around the day that is best for the volunteer driver(s) but we need the day to be consistent, especially during the three-month trial period.

If you are willing and able to help, please ring us on 8295 1771 to discuss.

Thank you!

Easing of COVID-19 restrictions from Good Friday

Hello all,

On 13 April 2022 we received an update from the Uniting Church in response to the South Australian government announcement of further easing of some COVID restrictions which take effect on Good Friday 15 April 2022. Acting General Secretary Sue Page and Moderator Bronte Wilson wrote:

The restrictions that relate to churches are as follows:

Mask requirements in all indoor public places have been removed––but strongly recommended in crowded spaces. An individual’s choice to wear a mask should be supported for those who wish to maintain this practice.

QR codes and contact tracing records are no longer required.

…Pending further information, the following requirements continue to apply to church activities until further notice:

·         COVID Safe Plans

·         COVID Marshals

·         Hand sanitising and frequent cleaning

So, while masks are no longer required, we are encouraged to support one another as many of us may choose to continue the practice for the time being.

In Peace,

Christine

Newsletter Issue 2 of 2022

Hello all,

Thirty-nine were present for the St. Andrew’s gathering last night––another great mixture of people from across the community.

(L-R) Rev. Chelsea Size, Rev. Christine Gilbert, Ben Williams

Guest speaker Chelsea’s offering focused on curiosity and self-awareness. She drew our attention to the cultural expectations we might carry and encouraged us to become curious about them and aware of how they are at play in us as individuals and in our communities. Using the image of composting, Chelsea gave examples from her life of times she became aware of stories that inhibit love and community and how she let go of them and allowed them to be composted into useful fertiliser for the future.

A more complete report of the input from the community will be available in the future. 

A reminder that the clocks will “fall back” on Sunday morning as daylight savings time ends this weekend. 

Attached is a soft copy of the newsletter. Printed copies are available at St. Andrew’s.

Peace,

Christine
