6.  ELDERS’ MEETING.  On Sunday 12th February at 11am, there will be meeting for all the elders of the Church.  If you were ordained in another parish you are also welcome.  The purpose of the meeting is two-fold: to talk about pastoral care, and receive your feedback about any aspect of our parish life.

7.  INTER-FAITH DISCUSSION.  On Sunday March 5th at 11am, there will be a discussion for anyone interested on our inter-faith activities at St Luke's.  Currently we have two pilgrimages.   The question is 'could we do more?' and 'what are other like-minded groups doing?'   In regard to the latter question Glynn has invited Jocelyn Armstrong from the Religious Diversity Trust to be present.

9.  KINDNESS MATTERS.  Tired of being constantly stressed and hard on yourself?  You are not alone, and there IS something you can do about it.  Might be time to learn about mindfulness and self-compassion.  Many scientific studies now show that learning to be more mindful and self-compassionate helps increase wellbeing and resilience, improves your relationships, and has powerful and lasting effects on mental health.  Health Psychologist Anna Friis is offering two new eight-week courses in Mindful Self-Compassion training this year.  The first is being held on Monday mornings (starting Monday February 20), with the second on Tuesday evenings (starting February 21). See for more course details or  Email to to enrol.  Course costs are $400 all inclusive.
