Pantry Donations

A sincere thank you to all who donate so generously to the TUC pantry. Recently, the pantry has been able to support a number of people from the community. We are currently in need of the following items: rice, coffee, tuna, microwave meals, soap & shampoo. If you’re able to add an extra item to your weekly shop, that would be much appreciated. Pantry donations may be left in the marked box in the church foyer.

Sunday Twilight: Christmas Break

Final Sunday Twilight for 2017: Sunday 24 December
We’ll meet again in early 2018

Please join us then for a lovely celebration of Christmas. We will resume in 2018 and will let you know the exact date when it gets a bit closer.

International Missions Task Group

TUC is calling all interested people to form an International Missions Task Group to seek out ideas on how we can best support and engage with meaningful, life-transforming international Christian missions. The aim of the Task Group will be to discuss and discern how we might better partner with and promote global missions at TUC. If you have an interest in international missions/outreach and would like to join the Task Group, please get in touch with Steve: tucglobalmissions@gmail.com
