Churches combine for special service
The Finley Christian churches are changing things up this Sunday, as they close their doors to come together at Finley High School.
On the back of two successful combined church services in 2018, this will be the first of three combined services for the year.
The churches involved are: Community, Anglican, River of Life Church, Catholic, Presbyterian and Uniting.
Anglican church reverend Stephen Davis said it’s a good time to bring people together for a morning of unity and fellowship.
‘‘We do this on the fifth Sunday of the month. Last year we had 180 people to the first service and 130 to the second, which is pretty good considering it was AFL Grand Final weekend and school holidays.
‘‘It’s a free flowing casual service. People should attend because it’s an outreach from the churches to tell the public we’re good people and doing this service in spite of recent negative publicity.
‘‘All are welcome and not just Finley people, this is open for everybody across the Southern Riverina.
‘‘It’s good to see the churches working together, we might have a different ethos but still the same core values and principals,’’ Rev Davis said.
It will also be a special moment for Leeola Davis who is being commissioned as the High School chaplain.
The combined church services starts at 10am in the Finley High School auditorium. Morning tea will be provided. For more enquiries contact John Everingham on 0407 830 030 or Stephen Renn 0419 244 019.
