The people of Oxley Vale Anglican Community Church enjoyed a great evening together last Friday, eating together and thinking about the good things happening in the church and hearing plans for how those good things might be shared with their community.

The Vicar, Simon Carter, encouraged those present to think about change, whether good or bad, and contrasted the inevitability of change in the world we live in with the unchangeableness of Jesus. Chaplain Tom Magill presented some demographic research on the Oxley Vale area and encouraged the church to think how best it can serve the people in that area. Year 13 Gap Year Student Matt Smith gave an outline of his involvement in this year with young people, conferences and training.

A big ‘Thank You’ to all who helped set-up, cook, clean or otherwise contribute on the night!
