January 2022 Issue 1

“Always be joyful;

pray continually;

and for all things give thanks: this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.”

(1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18)

We mourn with the world the death of an outstanding person of faith and courage, a champion of truth and reconciliation, who took seriously the radical challenge of the good news of Jesus.

Proposed date: Sunday 6 March 2022, St James’ Anglican Church, King Street Sydney. More details to be provided at a later date.
