Jesus is the ‘thrill’ of hope, that continues to energize and inspire the team at Australian Christian Resources. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share this hope with you through their 2021 Christmas gift guide catalogue.
There's some lovely new products, including cocosoy candles, jewellery and children's wooden toys - all perfect for your loved ones. Some new again favourites like the popular Time Out devotion book and Australian Christian Diary are also available, plus much more!
Each product in the catalogue links back to ACR's website, so simply click the item you're interested in to place an order. Alternatively, you can call the team at ACR on 1300 36 75 75.
Last year North Epping Carols decided to do things a little differently. It was such a great success that we have decided to do it again for 2021!
Instead of gathering at Epping Oval, invite your family, friends and neighbours to your home for a CAROLS WATCH PARTY on Saturday 11th December at 7pm. Join with hundreds of others from our community ONLINE to get into the real spirit of Christmas.
Register as a host by 3rd December and you will be in the lucky draw to WIN 1 of 6 Christmas food hampers! But you can still register up until Wednesday 8th December.
Winners will be announced during the carols event on Saturday 11th December.
The Together for Ryde churches are looking to show God’s love in Ryde this Christmas. Here are two ways you could help do that:
- CREATE A FOOD BAG FOR SOMEONE IN NEED: Donate a bag of food and the Salvation Army will make sure it gets to those who need it most this Christmas. We’re looking to give 300 food bags away this year and we believe that the church of Ryde can make that happen. Attached here is a checklist on what your food bag could contain, but feel free to be creative. Imagine the joy you’ll bring to someone this year! Bag drop off is at Ryde Baptist Church, or ask your pastor if your church can collect them. Please do this by Sunday 12th December. Please ensure hampers contain only food items that are in date and nonperishable. If you have any questions please contact: [email protected]
- YOU COULD COLLECT MONEY FOR THOSE IN NEED: You could also be involved by collecting financial donations with the Salvos which go towards serving the city. We need volunteers to sit and collect donations at Top Ryde and Macquarie Shopping Centre for 2.5 hours at least once between the 8th and 22nd December. If you could volunteer for a slot that would go a long way in helping others. To serve email your name and interest in serving a collection station to Nora at [email protected] .
Thank you for sharing God’s love this Christmas.
