The Operations Team and the Connect for Craft Team are hosting this event as we thought it important and useful for the women of the church to come together as we are moving out of the Place of Worship COVID restrictions and before the Christmas season and the end of the year. We realise that, compared with similar events pre-pandemic, the structure is minimalist in many ways to suit the times we are in and the resources available. We want everyone to be able to attend and enjoy the day.
As we come out of the hibernation of the pandemic, it is timely to remember that God, who has been in ultimate control throughout, has purpose for our lives, so our theme is Here to Serve is based on
It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others. Eph 2:10 [TLB]
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do Eph 2:10 [NIV]
We will explore the two parts of this verse:
- God himself has made us who we are - presentations and discussion of content from the Safer Spaces toolkit prepared by Australian Baptists on the topic of Redeeming (bible) passage that have been used against women.
- To do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do – guests from organisations that partner with the Connect for Craft group members and a mini expo of displays and demonstrations including representatives from:
Where: The Seminar and Board rooms and the Community Room. Weather permitting, we may be able to eat our picnic lunch out of doors.
When: 9:30 am for 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Catering: Bring your own packed lunch and snacks or shop at the Wanniassa shops.. As the cost of living is rising, we do not want you to have any extra expense so we are not asking women to bring a plate to share instead bring your own packed lunch. This will also mean that everyone can participate in the activities of the day.
Refreshments: Coffee and a variety of teas and milks will be provided.
