About 120 people gathered for the annual Top of The Valley event at Birdwood Lutheran Church in October. The theme was ‘Looking Forward Looking Back’ and the event was open to everyone in the local community, which continues to rebuild after the 2019 drought, the Cudlee Creek fire and COVID-19.
Last month, the District’s admin team held a craft day, where they made a card with a message for the wife of every pastor in SA and NT. It’s been a challenging year for many in the Church and we wanted these women to know that they are appreciated and cared about.
It has been wonderful to see people gathered together in our church buildings again following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. Here is a collection of photos from congregations across the District documenting their first worship services in person for several months.
Volunteering is simply a way of life for Carmel Wuttke. Her love for people is evident in the numerous volunteer activities she undertakes within the local Waikerie community, where she is a very well-known and much-loved figure.
During this time of not being able to meet in person, it is important we continue to steward our buildings well. We encourage congregations to safely undertake a walk-around of their properties weekly to ensure they are kept in good condition.
This Easter will be very different for all of us. Thankfully technology is helping us through these tough times and we thought we would share some ways that will help you stay connected this Holy Week.
