Churches com­bine for spe­cial ser­vice

Southern Riverina news - - BULLETIN BOARD -

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.
