Vicar's News - 26 September 2021

Updated: Sep 26, 2021

(available Sunday morning)

There is a bird atop the stone cross above the belfry of the Pioneer Chapel, but of course, I missed it. You don't want to miss the music and the sermon in Sunday morning's recorded Holy Eucharist service. Link here.



Heather Cross, wife of Tony, died in Adelaide. Her funeral was held there on Wednesday.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory.


Roadmap out of COVID restrictions

No, that's Church Street. its a bit easier to understand than the 'roadmap' but Angela Alomes and I will be on a Zoom meeting with Bishop Paul Barker this week to discuss how best to ensure the safety of our parishioners, many of whom have underlying health issues, the ease for sides people, and less of a headache for all concerned when the church finally reopens. Once these issues are firmed up with the government, Parish Council will determine the appropriate methods we will use to check on vaccinations on re-opening.



There is time to get fully vaccinated prior to our re-opening so please ensure that you do so you will be able to attend church and we can keep our congregation safe.

Bishop Paul has asked that the following be included in our newsletter to make sure our non-English speaking community understand the need for double vaccination.





Organ Restoration

Stage 1 of the organ restoration project will be undertaken by St Andrew's Music Foundation as soon as pledged funds are received as our capable Organ Restoration Committee have now reached their target for that stage - $170,000.

Thank you to all those who contributed so generously.


Our morning prayer service commences at 9am on Sunday morning - please join us for worship, prayer and music - join here @ 9am
