hands & feet distribution

We are still operating our food distribution for those in need with most weeks having bread and bakery items, fresh fruit and vegetables. If you normally, or would like to, donate non-perishable items that would be greatly appreciated. Items can be dropped off during church office hours. 

Did you know that you are able to donate funds to support this community outreach? Did you know that Sunday School kids offering supports this? Sunday School offering collected has raised $112.80 so far this year, well done kids.

As you'll have already read you are able to make non-perishable, toiletries, cleaning product donations, but what if you find it hard to do shopping? You can donate directly to this ministry and funds are used to purchase food items that may be in short supply or provide Coles vouchers for families etc. To donate simply pop in an envelope marked Hands & Feet Craigmore and put in the offering if cash. Otherwise via internet banking to Craigmore Christian Church Inc  BSB: 065137 A/C: 00900862 Reference: Hands and Feet Craigmore

Do you need help?

Maybe you have lost your job or have reduced hours or due to health reasons are not getting to the shops as you normally would. We can make up a care package of food for you & your family from the Hands & Feet donations. Just contact Shayne Higgins on 0414 691 960 and let us know how we can help you!

Prayer Morning

This coming Saturday, 5th September, we will be meeting in the church cafe from 9am-10am to pray. We will be praying specifically for our church, church ministries, for our leadership, our school, and for our positive impact on this community. 

Your prayer, our prayers together, will be absolutely vital to the life and ministry of our church!

We honestly believe that prayer changes things! It changes hearts, it changes situations, it changes circumstances, it invites God into the situation. So, if you’re part of our family at Craigmore, if you’re committed to the life and work of the Lord here at Craigmore, we invite you to come and pray with us on Saturday morning. Hope to see you there!

More From 'Bulletin'

Bulletin l November 2021

[2 Peter 1 :3 -7]

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises,  so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

Christmas Services

Can you believe it’s 7 weeks till Christmas!?

 As a staff we have been looking at the Christmas season and the opportunities we will have to celebrate the birth of our Saviour. The challenges of COVID and the impact upon all families is another factor that we need to consider as we look to a Christmas with open borders, and many families already planning to travel interstate or have interstate family here.

 With COVID restrictions having to wear a mask whilst singing we do not feel that Christmas Eve service would be enjoyable, therefore this year will be a Christmas Day service at 9.30am.

Carols event

 This year we will not be having a public carols event due to Covid restrictions however we will be having an evening carols service and sausage sizzle for our congregation the weekend before Christmas where Phil Emery will be sharing a Christmas message with us.
