School House café

The café is presently closed. Kim and Mark have sold their business to new operators who will take over when the liquor licence is transferred which is likely to be towards the end of August. The Churchwardens have agreed a new lease with the buyers and we anticipate they will greatly improve all aspects of the café when they reopen. Watch this space!


Keble Mass

Last night the annual Keble Mass organised by the Australian Church Union was held at St Agnes' Glen Huntly. The preacher was Fr Peter Richard, Warden of St Agnes' House, a new Anglican seminary for the formation of priests. My thanks to Arnold and Johnson Xu, Xev and Tim Renouf for assisting in the sanctuary of the beautiful church.
