The inaugural Fun, Food and Faith Arvo was held at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Coopernook on March 19.
The various games and activities were conducted by Manning Valley Anglican School (MVAC) teachers Greg Anderson, Tamara Bean and Anne Randall.
Following the activities and a hearty country hospitality style afternoon tea the MVAC families joined other parishioners for the regular 5pm Eucharist with the students assisting in various parts of the service.

Harrington/Coopernook parish priest Father Steve Niland said that he appreciated the co-operation of MVAC in seeking to expand and re-energise children’s and youth ministry in the parish.
