International Pot Luck Supper – Saturday, November 21st We are a wonderful multicultural community celebrating our common faith in Christ and each year we celebrate the anniversary of the turning of the sod, laying of the foundation, consecration of the land for our church of St. Helen on the Reign of Christ Sunday. This year we will have a potluck on the Saturday evening. It’s a great time of fellowship and fun. A splendid time to invite your friends and parishioners we haven’t seen for a while. Do think up your most revered dish to bring along and share with us all. Would you like to help with some entertainment? If so, please speak with our rector, Steve.

Bazaar WORKBEE: Tuesday, November 17 at 10:00 a.m. in the upper hall - if you are working on something, do bring it along. Please make sure that the table leaders have any and all of your donations at least one week before the bazaar, this is necessary so that they know what they have and can prepare accordingly. The exception to this is of course the pantry and baking tables.
