AWF Project

A project started before Covid-19 has been resurrected by the AWF in the region – the support of Greyville Primary School. An appeal is being made for “previously loved books” suitable for those in Grades 1-7. Books may be left in the church or in the church office. They will be handed over on 14 April. Let us support them! Another action will be the adoption of 10 impoverished children at the school. The intention is to purchase full school uniforms for them.

Organ Recital/Concert
The organists of St Pauls and St Cyprians (the parishes that have responsibility for Kerr House) will offer a combined organ recital for Kerr House on Saturday 2 April at 3.00pm. The recital will include a few popular hymns. There will be refreshments in the hall afterwards. Booking through St Cyprians.
