TUC ANZAC Centenary
Sincere thanks to Pamela Wilson and her team for creating such a meaningful ANZAC service last week. For those who have not seen it, the Commemorative Booklet is available after the service in the Faichney Room. The research that has gone into its creation is astonishingly detailed. Particular thanks also to Kimberly Hobbs.
Catherine Charles has been doing an outstanding job on bookkeeping for TUC over the last two years. Unfortunately, her business has been growing and she cannot afford to spend as much time with us as she has been doing.
This role of bookkeeper will be under the general guidance from Catherine Charles. Essential requirements are: some knowledge of accounting systems; expertise in MYOB Account Right Live software or the demonstrated ability to acquire it quickly; familiarity with TUCs mission, including outreach, and areas or activity.
The position will be 2 - 5 hours per week. Expressions of interest are invited. Please contact Christopher Page 0417 506 338.
Please uphold in prayer our Bible League ministry brothers and sisters in Nepal as they care for and support so many of their fellow citizens who have had their lives shattered. Pray too that they will be able to witness about Christ as they assist with some of the more practical needs amongst those affected.
Yours in Christ,
CEO, Bible League Australia and New Zealand
