- MOVED small groups: There is still time to join a small group for this four week series. Groups this week are using material prepared by Nicholas, and then next week begin the three weeks of the MOVED booklet. If you know a group you would like to join, call the leader and ask to participate. If you don’t know a group, email Grace Munro on firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sarah Trebilcock. Nicholas will start the sermon series on Sunday – morning and evening services –followed by Andy Mitchell and Susan Campbell the following weeks. More info on Moved, see www.globalinteraction.org.au.
One option from Laura Holley (and there are other options available): “Hi guys!! So I’m hoping to start a MOVED small group either this Thursday or next. It’ll be at 7.30 in Kew and the focus is on mission. If you’re looking for a small group for the 3 or 4 weeks (with the potential to continue longer) please let me know. All welcome!! Thanks! Laura!”

OPPORTUNITY TO HELP: A year 11 student at Carey has a serious medical condition, but is able to attend sometimes. The hospital will fund an adult helper to help her with mobility – push her wheelchair, open doors, help with her bags, have a coffee with her, etc. It would be a bonus if they could pick her up/drop her off at home (still paid), but this is not essential. The helper would need to be flexible, and the school would do their best to book ahead. If you are interested, ask Grace Munro (email@example.com) for a copy of the email sent by Gerry Reviere, the Chaplain.
OPPORTUNITY TO BE HELPED: Kate Steel writes: “I thought I would share some information about the low-cost psychology clinic at Cairnmillar Institute where I am currently studying. Cairnmillar has a low-cost psychology clinic run by provisional psychologists finishing up their clinical training in masters or internship degrees.
The clinic offers 50 minutes psychology consultations for $20 and really cheap assessments such as vocational, personality, intelligence, etc. The provisional psychologists that run the clinic are all supervised by fully registered psychologists and your confidentiality and privacy is assured.
