“It’s like a Care Conference – only better!”

Each Sunday throughout the month of May we will having an emphasis on how we, the Christian Community, can care – for each other, for our families, for our friends, for our neighbourhoods, and our city – for those we know, and those we don’t. Each Sunday we will invite you to respond with an act of care which will culminate when the C.E.O. of the Launceston City Mission will present his heart for how we can care for those in our Valley who are less fortunate than us.
