St Thomas' Weekend Away at Philip Island Adventure Resort, Cowes was a great time of fellowship and learning for the 80 or so people who attended. Tim Foster from Ridley Melbourne and Ben Wong from Holy Trinity Doncaster were our speakers for the weekend. If you would like to hear a sample you'll find Tim's talk 1 and talk 2 in our podcast.
It was a particularly good time for the way the English and Cantonese congregations mixed with each other. The cabaret on Saturday night over dinner was great fun and everyone enjoyed the acts and the jokes (even the terrible ones).
Here are some photos - others are on our photo album page
The Alpha Course has commenced with a bang with almost 50 in attendance. More information and blog may be found at www.alphaburwood.net.
These are some photos from the first few nights:
Thanks to everyone who contributed to our Plaster Painting Stall at Wattle Day!
Two years after merging our two Parishes our Broughton Rd site was closed on Advent Sunday, November 29th 2009. The church, which was originally St Theodore's Wattle Park, was closed with a large congregation present including some of those who were involved in the first discussion about planting a new Church of England Parish here in 1949. Although the Church building has closed, the ministry that was established then will continue in its new guise of St Thomas' Burwood.
If you would like to see the powerpoint of photos from the past 60 years you'll find them here (but please note this is a 13MB file)
See our Photo Album for photos of the event.
All of our services will be held at 44 Station St from now on.
