So how can people help?
Like every new venture our Community needs support. Especially as we have a new Church Building to pay for!
There are a number of ways;
*If you live locally, then come and join us for Liturgy. We’d be glad to get to know you and have you be a part of our Orthodox Community.
*If that’s not possible, then please pray for us. Whilst we have the prayers of the Theotokos and St Ignatius of Antioch and the Saints in heaven, every prayer from people here and now is of great benefit.
* By offering to help out with some aspect of our Community with Morning Tea after Liturgy, assisting with our ongoing maintenance and building work, paying for advertising or any number of things.
*Financially. Yes, it is a sad fact of life that we need money to pay the bills. We now have a mortgage (doesn’t everyone?), Public Liability Insurance, Church supplies, limited advertising. We have already established a Bank Account so that there is financial transparency as to where any money received is going. We are using
Wallan & District Community Bank (a Bendigo Bank)
because we believe in supporting our local community.
