NewS Highlight

Message from Rev Stephen van Shalkwyk

Bay Life’s community outreach offers some very exciting opportunities to care for people and bring dignity in practical ways. The Mission and Outreach Committee (M&O) were very excited about an opportunity to partner with Rose Harrington who has funded the design and construction of a portable laundry trailer. It contains two washing machines and tumble dryers, and the idea is to provide facilities to wash and dry clothes for people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it.

In February, M&O brought a proposal to Church Council, who approved a pilot project to run the trailer on Thursdays at the Bay Life Cafe.  We will monitor its usage and work out the logistics of setting up and packing away.  Most importantly, we will work out how best to extend the Christian hospitality for which Bay Life and our Cafe strive so passionately.

 What a joy to work with gifted teams who are making a genuine difference in our town; how exciting to see such innovative support and care!  If you would like to be part of that care, support and difference, then please speak to Erica at the Cafe, to Ray Toia (Chair of M&O) or to me.

 I’d also like to say a big “thank you” to Rose and to Bay Life: I can’t wait to see what the Creator will do with this project!

Wishing you God’s blessing this Easter, Stephen
