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 (you can sign up online: http://welcometomyplace.org.au). 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, 6:30pm–9:00pm, NewHope Baptist Church (3 Springfield Rd, Blackburn North).

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Felicia Prior is putting together some photos for a mental illness awareness project. She needs some volunteers who are willing to be photographed for artistic purposes, to portray those who have been diagnosed with mental illness. She would like anyone who is willing, from a variety of age groups and backgrounds. The sessions will be early Feb, either Sat 8th or Sat 15th. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Felicia.

PRAYER: There is prayer at the back of the church at 5pm every Sunday. We’d love you to join with us in this important ministry!
