Blacktown Council Elections: September 10

This forthcoming election gives our Church another opportunity to fund raise. Of course this cannot be achieved without calling once again for volunteers to show off their cooking skills on our “Old Faithful” barbecue.

You will find the volunteer form on a clip board in the foyer. Please record your name next to your preferred duty.
