THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: We have the Kew Community Carols at Petrie Square (cnr Cotham Rd & Charles St, opposite Kew Library). There will be a community market from 6pm with stalls providing ethical options for Christmas gifts, as well as food stalls, a sausage sizzle and kids’ activities. The carols program will commence at 7.30pm. Please note that there will be no NightChurch service on this evening. Come to the carols instead! We would love you to help in any way you can – general setup, running the sausage sizzle, face-painting and kids’ activities, etc. Please talk to Nick or Laura about how you can get involved!

VIETNAM MISSION FUNDRAISING: Thanks to all those who have contributed to the fundraising for the 2014 Vietnam Mission Trip. $700 was raised at the trivia event last week, plus another $100 from the pizza night on Sunday – on top of the $1500 raised last Sunday at our church gathering and dinner. That’s $2300 in one week! Praise God for our generous church.
