This week:

Thurs Apr 26, 6:30pm - Olinda-Ruthven Stewards & Trustees Meeting.

Sat Apr 28, 7pm - Special Memorial Service at Trinity.
         In Memory of those who gave their lives,
         in Honour of those who have served and
         in Support of those now serving the cause
         of peace and freedom.

         One hundred years ago during the
         Great War, people from the community
         gathered at Trinity Methodist Church
         to remember those who had fallen,
         to sustain those still serving as the
         battles raged on and to pray for an end
         to all hostilities.

                  You are invited
                  to gather again to Remember, Honour
                  and Support not only those of the
                  Great War but all who have fallen,
                  served and serve in the last one
                  hundred years.
