Our Christmas Services again included our regular children's Christmas musical, this year "The Perfect Christmas Gift" and our Christmas Eve Family Service, "Packed to the Rafters of the Stable".
Here are some photos but there are more to be found in our Photo a Album in the Chifam and the Worship albums respectively.
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.

Our Garage Sale on Oct 17 was a great success with lots of people coming through to pick up a bargain - and there were a few bargains to be had!
The St Thomas' team worked very well before, during and after the event to raise a good sum towards our annual budget. Here are a few photos from the day.
