St Margaret's News July 2015

St. Margaret’s News July 2015 St Margaret’s Uniting Church Hackett is an inclusive, welcoming and caring Christian community which highly values engagement with the wider inner north community of Canberra. News from Church Council At the congregational meeting on the 21st of June, we gave the go-ahead for the conversion of the TV Room at Ross Walker Lodge into another bed-sitter for a resident with disability. It is hoped that construction work will be done in a 3 to 4 week period some time in August to October, with completion by the end of October at the latest. UnitingCare Disability will no longer be using 210 Antill Street for Stepping Stones for Life purposes from 1 July. Alison Cooper-Stanbury will continue working with UnitingCare Disability, but will be working from the offices of Capital Community Housing at Weston. Alison’s role there will be focussed on finding suitable accommodation options for people with disability. Church Council is examining options for renting 210 Antill Street for other purposes. Minor repairs and maintenance will be carried out at 210 Antill Street over the next month in preparation for renting. Please pray for Church Council as we consider the various options, that we may choose an option which enhances the mission of our church community. If you have any thoughts as to how 210 Antill Street could be used, please talk to me or other members of Church Council. - John Goss Chair, St Margaret’s Church Council Contact Us Mail: PO Box 7036, Watson, ACT, 2602 Phone: 02 6248 0282 Email: st_marg_uc_act@bigpond.com
