Starting time 8:30 am
Needed: Books, clothes, garage sale items and bric-a-brac for various stalls. Gardeners, we need plants to sell: cooks we need jams, cakes and other baked goods and those from who are crafty we need craft items.
Please NO ELECTRICAL ITEMS as we are unable to carry out the necessary safety checks.
More helpers are needed on the day. Even an hour or two of your time will help if you cannot come for the whole morning.
Also we need people to pack up chairs and set up the MPC. Generally this is done Thursday evening leaving Friday available for stall holders to set up.
Please fill in the roster at the back of the church so I have some idea who is doing what.
Note that as last year the starting time is 8:30. Stall holders need to have stalls fully staffed from 8:00 am.

Spurred to action by the recent War on Waste program on the ABC, eight of us got together on 28th June to talk about why we are interested in our responsibility for the environment as Christians and as concerned individuals. We know that we reflect a wider concern within our congregation. Our church life profile from the recent survey tells us that there is not one of us who thinks that, as Christians, we do not have a responsibility to care for the environment. While 74% of us said we are active, 26% said that they were not.
Our conversation was wide ranging and lively. We have so many ideas. Each of us has taken away one thing to research for the next meeting. The aim is to help each member of the congregation find ways that we can act to lessen the impact our lifestyle has on the environment. We will also be looking at ways that Campbelltown Uniting can take steps to recycle and make well informed purchases.
