CWS has launched the Tonga Emergency Appeal to assist those affected.  Donations will be distributed to local Tongans so they can address the most immediate needs and then used as part of the longer term recovery. Your prayers, consideration and support of those affected by the eruptions, tsunami and their aftermath are so important and we thank you for showing your compassion to the people of Tonga at this time. If you can, please make a donation here.

A new Sunday roster is available today – please check to see if there is a copy for you in the foyer.
