Children’s Christmas Program at Hakea Prison

Many children’s lives are impacted by a parent entering prison. ReSet hope to provide a donated gift for all children who attend the Prison Christmas parties. If you would like to donate a gift (unwrapped), they can be delivered in November or the first week in December to the Hakea ReSet Family Support Centre, located at Hakea Prison, Nicholson Road, Canning Vale. Alternatively collection can be arranged by contacting them in November on 9366 6461 or email awalley@reset.org.au


Hakea are also constantly on the look out for donations of Backpacks for the men once they are released; cars, books, toys, pencils, textas and art materials for the visiting children. Please see Catherine Berger or Frances David for more info.

Alpha

If you would like to be part of our next Alpha course, please contact Anneliis at admin@thebillabong.org.au. Alpha is a 10 week course exploring the basics of the Christian faith, perfect for anyone with big questions about life and faith.

Billabong Photos

Do you have any great photos of the Billabong over the years? Anneliis would love a copy (including the date if you know!) so that she can create an archive gallery, and share some on our website.

Meal Train for the Sampsons

You can still join the Meal Train for the Sampson Family and bless them through this tricky time. Please visit https://mealtrain.com/glodo3 to find a date that suits you.

Contact Database

We are starting to update our church contact database. If your details have changed or you aren't sure whether your details are correct, please see Anneliis or one of the welcome team on Sunday morning. There will be a print out on Sunday for people to check if needed, or forms that can be filled out with correct details.

If you are happy for your details to be shared in a church database available to members and friends of the Billabong, please let Anneliis know, or if you would just like them to be viewed by Pastoral and Ministry Leaders only. We value your privacy and will not share your information unless you give us permission to do so.

Details are used by staff to contact you and send out information.

Rosters

We would love some more help on Sunday mornings! If you would like to assist us in set up/pack up (mainly the chairs/tables), Morning Tea (you don't need to provide food), AV/Sound (we'll provide some training!) or Billabong Kids (they're all lovely) we would love to hear from you! If you're able to be on a monthly roster then that's great. We also need people to be available as a back up if someone is away. Simply head to thebillabong.org.au/serve
