Next Sunday we will be blessed with a visit by David Spitteler of The Asylum Centre fame. David is well own in church circles and when not speaking elsewhere (which is hardly ever) he worships at Glen Waverley Anglican Church. We look forward to welcoming David to both our 8am and 10am services next Sunday.
