Dear People of God

Anglican Communion Sunday this Sunday

Reflecting our continent’s rich diversity of language we will ask people to offer the peace in different languages. You are also invited to dress in a way that reflects the part of the Anglican Communion on this continent you come from.

Easter Offering

Thank you very much for the generous Easter offering which I received this week. Alison joins me in thanking you for your love and support.

The following have been nominated for DEXCO from the Ethekwini Region:
