Collection envelopes for the 2016 Christmas Bowl Appeal, supporting the work of Act for Peace, the International Aid Agency of The National Council of Churches in Australia, are still available from the stewards.
This year, the Appeal will focus on farmers in Zimbabwe who are struggling to produce enough food for their families after years of catastrophic drought. Season after season the rains have failed and many families are now on the brink of starvation. If you would like to contribute to the Christmas Bowl Appeal, please place the envelope containing your donation in the offering bag on any Sunday up to and including 8 January 2017. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and a receipt can be provided.
