This Week Around the Diocese
Scone Grammar School
What a spectacle! Congratulations to the winning Scone & Upper Hunter Horse Festival Parade Float for 2017 – Scone Grammar School. The costumes and the overall float design embraced the theme of Star Wars spectacularly. Congratulations also to The Yellow Cottage on their very creative and beautifully decorated float and for achieving a Highly Commended. ‘May the Horse be with you!’
There are 9 churches /congregations in Singleton, not including Messy Church, and when there is a 5th Sunday in the month, we are gathering and worshipping in different centres for 9.30 Eucharist. (The 8.00am service at All Saints’ is still held.) So far we have been to Warkworth, Reedy Creek and Broke. This month we travelled to St. Columba, Goorangoola which is 32 kms out of town. It is a great time of worship, fellowship and coming together as a parish.

A busy afternoon at Barney’s Club on May 4. They made their own playdoh, created with duplo, played checkers and discussed how we can be a part of the ‘light side’ by being helpful and kind. They also decorated light sabers and finished off with “light saber” battles using foam pool noodles.

Gorgeous pics from Fun with Kids Church over the last couple of weeks – Emmaus cookies & “Good Shepherd” sheep.

They kicked off the celebrations at Booragul with a fabulous turn out of our local Hunter/ Central Coast volunteers whom were showered in the most delectable cakes, tarts, scones and tea served by our incredible auxiliary. Chairperson, John Kilpatrick was there to sincerely thank these generous people for what invaluable work they do and continue to do.
