Special Prayers Please

Please pray for the senior boys from Lesmurdie High School involved in Wednesday evenings fatal car accident on the Zig Zag.

We pray particularly for their families, the school community, and those who responded to the accident.

The school community is in shock and many are grieving deeply.

Following the combined service last Sunday a parishioner asked about the provision of a reserved disabled parking bay at St Barnabas.

While there is no designated reserved parking for people with disabilities attending services at St Barnabas, parishioners with mobility difficulties have previously parked in the paved courtyard at the front of the Hall (entrance off Railway Rd).
