North Coast Weekender - - News -

AN af­ter­noon tea with pur­ple food, quizzes and games was re­cently held at Bethanie Kings­ley to cel­e­brate Pur­ple Week.

The theme for this year’s Pur­ple Week was ‘We take own­er­ship for all our ac­tions and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties’.

The event in­cluded seven days of ac­tiv­i­ties to in­spire res­i­dents, staff and vol­un­teers to re­con­nect spir­i­tu­ally, en­cour­age greater com­pas­sion and re­spect, and im­prove well­be­ing.

Bethanie sites across Western Aus­tralia took part in var­i­ous pur­ple-themed ac­tiv­i­ties, with War­wick host­ing a morn­ing tea with ther­apy ac­tiv­i­ties and a bar­be­cue, while Yanchep hosted a Pur­ple Ser­vice and morn­ing tea.

Bethanie chap­lains co-or­di­na­tor David Van Leen said Pur­ple Week was about ac­knowl­edg­ing Bethanie’s Chris­tian her­itage.
