To share a practical expression of God’s love we are once again preparing hampers to be given to people in our local community. We are so looking forward to sharing these gifts to tenants at our local caravan park, along with those nominated within our Bridgey community, Bridgecare, G’Day Saturday, local chaplaincy, dhiiyaan, wider network connections and refugee communities… This means we will again be creating 750 hampers to bless others.
It’s a huge task, but also a huge opportunity that we can all take part in! For a small investment, we get to pass on incredible blessing!
So how can you be involved? Check out below…
SPONSOR A HAMPER: Cash donations are being taken now…
- Each hamper has an approximate value of $40, perhaps you might like to sponsor a hamper or two…
- We know time is a premium for many people, so we are happy to do the shopping for you!!
- If you would like to make a financial contribution towards the hampers, you are able to do so at any time – from now right up to Thanksgiving Sunday 24 November. Simply label any gifts “Christmas Hampers”
DONATIONS OF FOOD
On Thanksgiving Sunday 24th November, it would be great if everyone could bring along items of food or donations of money (toward the purchase of food) that can be included in a hamper. Please ensure food items are non-perishable and that the expiry date extends past January 2020.
SORTING & PACKING
Thanksgiving Sunday also provides us with a fantastic opportunity to join together following the 6:30pm service (8pm) to sort the goods donated. We encourage you to come along and participate in this exciting time!
We are awaiting the delivery of some bulk ordered stock on Monday 25th November and would love some help with the collection and unpacking of these goods. Please meet the team at 10am at the Main Auditorium for instructions.
Tuesday 26th November is the day you do not want to miss as we pack all 750 hampers ready for delivery. Meet at 9am within the Main Auditorium
BRISBANE NORTH RENTAL VILLAGE HAMPER DELIVERY
As a church we have an awesome opportunity to bless the residents at the Brisbane North Rental Village (formerly Aspley Acres Caravan Park) with Christmas hampers this year. We are meeting here at Bridgeman at 3pm on Thursday 28th November before transporting and hand delivering these hampers to the residents. We would love your help in spreading the love of Jesus into this community yet do request that this delivery be for Teenagers and Adults rather than young children as this activity involves carrying and walking longer distances.
