Uniting – Winter Share Appeal This annual Appeal is on this month.  It’s a great way to support local families and children who are homeless or in crisis.  Donations help people who urgently need emergency relief – our gifts will make real difference and go towards things such as food, clothing, medical help and crisis housing.  As a church community we can provide a safety net for people who are struggling to provide for their families.  We are the answer to their prayers, helping people to move from crisis to stability.  Appeal brochures and envelopes are in the porch.  You can send your donation in the envelope provided to Uniting Winter Share Appeal, Reply Paid 85995; Online at vt.uniting.org/winterappeal; Call 1800 668 426.

Organ Completion FundFrom Church Council
Almost thirty years ago, when the organ was installed at Deepdene, there was not quite enough money to complete it.
The organ has been an important part of our worship at Deepdene over those thirty years.  In addition, in the last three years, we have had the pleasure of hearing the organ played, in concert, by some very talented organists.  They have helped us appreciate the quality of the instrument.
Recently, we have been offered $7,000 by two members of the congregation who are very keen to see the work completed.
We have confirmed that the materials required for the work to be completed are, remarkably, available.  A craftsman from the South Island Organ Company could undertake the work as soon as we are ready.
The Church Council has decided that this work should be done and allocated $3,500 in this year’s budget for this purpose – a good part of these from the proceeds of Sunday afternoon concerts, arranged and led by Stuart Shearman, our current organist.
Members of the congregation are invited to contribute to what we are calling the ‘Organ Completion Fund’.  Organ Completion Fund envelopes are available at the rear of the church.  $4,000 more is required. 
We are keen to proceed with this work as soon as possible.

Sammy Stamp The following is an excerpt from the July edition of Network.
“Winter is now upon us but despite this, Sammy Stamp’s work goes on.  Up to and including 31 May 2018, sales had reached about $16,382 (same week last year, $12,982).  Thank you to all out there for your continue support with stamps, etc which are continuing to flow in.  Please keep it up.  I understand that the lack of free transport of stamps from the bush is close to resolution.  A notice will appear in Network when the service resumes.  Since our last report the following grants have been approved:
Landsborough (Vic) UC                          School Holiday Programmes                              $1,500
Forest Street, Bendigo UC,                    Community lunch and activities              $3,000
Mercy Works (Sisters of Mercy) Work with women prisoners and
                                                                                                            youth with educational programs             $1,000

This brings to $24,500 the grants approved so far this year.”
So you can see what good works your used stamps are doing!!

The congregation offering received last week was $1618.50 (incl direct debit ave.).  The budgeted amount is $1614.45.
