Programme for April 2015



This illustrated article traces the courage and sacrifice of so many during 115 Years of the Greek Australian Alliance.

"1915, 4th March
– The first Anzacs landed on Lemnos island, in Moudros Harbour and were part of the largest armada ever assembled at that time. The island served as the main base of operations for the Gallipoli Campaign, including hospitals. In the waters around Lemnos and the island’s soil now rest over 220 Anzacs. The most famous Lemnian on Gallipoli was the donkey used by Simpson to rescue wounded Anzacs."

Scripture Teachers
Teaching the word of God is a great blessing for us all. We need parents who are prepared to dedicate an hour a week to teaching our children.

Car Parking
Parishioners are requested to be mindful of neighbours, and respectful of nature strips when parking in and around the church grounds. Those vehicles that are illegally parked will be fined by the local council.
