Coming events

Res Working Bee: It’s that time of year again! Yes, time to get the Res all ready and spruced up for the new year. Challenges include vanquishing spiders, searching for left over treasure in drawers and under beds, furniture construction (or at least putting it together/fixing it), tearing apart old mattresses and salvaging scrap metal, as well as a bunch of other general, more mundane but very helpful cleaning, sorting and fixing jobs. Date: Saturday 8 February. Time: From 8.30am – 12.00pm (come when you can, stay for as long as you can). 10am Morning Tea provided. Hope to see you there!

Guys’ Maintenance Crew: The maintenance crew is meeting for the first time on Saturday 15 February from 8.30am until about 2pm (or whenever we finish the work). We will be putting up some shelving in the back room of the hall. Lots of drilling and woodwork, climbing and moving heavy things. Free BBQ lunch. Come along and hang out with some top blokes. Let off some steam with a hammer and drill!

Church Gathering & Lunch: On Sunday 16 February after the 10am service we will gather together to hear about the plans for the year, finance updates, and prayer together. Jono Davenport has been nominated to become a Deacon, which is good news. One thing as a main item could be imagining how we can best use our quarterly gatherings to further the mission and ministry of KBC. And we will also share lunch together – donations welcome!

Welcome To My Place: June 15-21 this year is Refugee Week, and World Vision is running a program to help church communities host asylum seekers for lunch/dinner. There is a training night at NewHope in Blackburn in March – Nicholas will be going and is keen for our church to have a dinner or lunch during that week to host asylum seekers. If you are interested in being involved, sign up and let Nicholas know. Training event: Thursday 6 March 2014, 6.30–9pm, NewHope Baptist Church (3 Springfield Rd, Blackburn North).  Sign up online: http://welcometomyplace.org.au.
