Can you drink nothing but water for one month to transform lives through safe water?
Safe Water September is a challenge to drink nothing but water for the entire month of September, to raise funds for safe water projects in rural Zimbabwe and Vanuatu. Yes, you can still eat food, but no coffee, tea, soft drink or milkshakes! For every $20 you raise, one person gains access to life-changing safe water. This means kids will go to school, child and maternal deaths will drop, and communities will be transformed!
Globally, 1 in 10 people don't have clean water close to home – we want to change this.
Gather a team and join us! Sign up to take the challenge now at www.safewaterseptember.org.au You’ll also find some great resources online to help you get started, including a video clip, blog and simulation game.
When you participate in the challenge, donate, or even spread the word, you are helping to make a difference in the lives of people living in Zimbabwe and Vanuatu. Thank you!
The first meeting at Point Sturt was in the tent home of William Crawford in 1855. A Church was then built, opening in 1861, free of debt. David Mann supervised the construction of the building and also built the cedar seats. The slate roof which still remains was the work of James Crabb Verco. An organ was purchased in 1925.
Baptisms were performed in the lake. In 1868 there were 53 scholars in the Sunday School.
In 1900 it was considered acceptable for a wage of 104 pounds per year for a married man and 80 pounds per year for a single man.
There will be a service at this well maintained building on August 22nd at 2.00pm. Grant Simpson will be the speaker and Daryll Telfer is leading the service. Although not in regular use for many years, we are still celebrating 160 years of the faithful witness of this Church.
Enquiries and registrations for attendance can be made to Carolyn Yelland 0412 499 302.
