Thanks to everyone who came to Church at the Beach

MCC Summer Church at the Beach has been a success!

Thanks to all who came to Angus Neill Reserve and Henley Square over the past couple of Sunday afternoons – it was a great time of just catching up outside of church and allowing time for conversations, connecting and just catching up for those who were there.

We had some who road on their bikes from Hallett Cove to Brighton.

Some purchased hot chips and icecreams. Picnic baskets were brought along.

Some dipped their feet in the water and walked along the jetty at Henley Square.

All the kids enjoyed the sunshine, playgrounds, sand, water and munching on snacks.

There is no “beach church” gathering planned for this Sunday but you might like to use the opportunity to organise a catch up and gathering.

Main Roster and Flower Power Roster - Availability and Unavailability

Hello and thank you for making yourselves available in the various ministries and services that aid in our worship of God and connection with our church family and community. You are all incredibly valued and appreciated. Thank you!

It is imperative that anyone feeling ill or unwell, does not attend, but rather arrange for a replacement and/or contact the church office.

It would be a huge help if you could advise the times that you are not available for your regular role/s so that we can plan ahead. If you are willing and able to offer to be contacted at short notice as a fill in person, we would love to hear from you as well.

As the last format seemed to work well, and generally easy and user friendly we are using the same platform- this will work on your apple and android laptops/computers and phones.

If you would prefer a paper copy, please let me know and I will pop one in your pigeon hole to collect or mail out if needed.

Thank you all so very much for your service and choosing MCC to offer your time and talents.

Please RSVP ASAP or by February 10th by the latest, thank you!

Kind regards
