Making Connections - Sunday Lunch in Homes – 28 October
In October the West Boroondara Network of Uniting Churches is hosting Sunday lunch in homes.  There is no better way to get to know each other than to share a meal together in small groups.  Would you like to share a simple lunch with others in the network with the aim of making connections between the people of the network?

How will it work?                        Each church will find two to four hosts who are willing to have the lunch in their home.  The host will provide soup and tea and coffee for the guests and a table to seat them.  Numbers would be set by each host but would expect to be between 4 and 8 people.
Who will attend?                        Members of each congregation will indicate their willingness to go to lunch in advance.  Our hope is that each table will be made up of members of different congregations.  Each person or couple would be asked to provide either sandwiches, breadstick or a cake/slice as their contribution.  The time for the lunch would also be determined by the host but would be from12:30pm to about 2:30pm.
Who is organizing this social event?                   The Community Life Network of Habitat Uniting Church will organize this with members of the Joint Church Council.  
People willing to host a lunch should contact their local member of the Joint Church Council by Sunday 23 September.  Our rep is Joan Taylor - 0410 588 236.

The congregation offering received last week was $2250.30 (incl direct debit ave.).  The budgeted amount is $1614.45.
