When: 10am-4pm Saturday, 7 November 2021

Rev Alister Hendery will take a reflective practical workshop on grieving.  It is for anyone who wishes to reflect on their own experiences of loss, and for people who want to support others who grieve.  It will cover:
• We all lose and grieve – far more than we realise.
• What do we make of our grief?
• The way you grieve is utterly unique to you.
• What can we offer someone who is in the midst of grief?
• Where does God fit into the pain of grief?
Wendy will be taking a car over if anyone would like transport. Email

Girls Zone is hosting their very own WOW show using recyclable materials.
We are committed to the church’s drive of “Caring for Creation”. We are raising awareness amongst our children, showing how we can make a difference and learning new ways of reducing waste. 
Our theme is All of God’s Creation – and our show is going to be spectacular! 
Looking forward to having you with us!  We would love to have some volunteers to serve food and drink at the event and connect with the SMASH families!
