Some of our members participated in the "Ryde Got Talent" on Saturday afternoon at North Ryde Uniting Church. It was a gathering for Uniting Church congregations within City of Ryde Zone of Sydney Central Coast Presbytery. We sang a song "In Christ Alone" in 3 languages: English, Cantonese, and Korean. These 3 languages represent the 3 main language groups in our church. We hope more people can join us next time.
教會的部份會友參與了星期六下午在 North Ryde Uniting Church 舉行的 Ryde Got Talent 節目，這個節目是讓 Sydney Central Coast 區委會的 City of Ryde 區域內各聯合教會會眾有一個聯誼機會，使大家能夠互相認識。
我們教會會友用三種語言：英文，廣東話，韓文去獻唱一首詩歌 In Christ Alone，這三種語言正好代表了教會內三個主要語言群體。我個期望下次聯誼可以有更多會友參加。
Funeral service of the late Phyllis Chow
Dear Pastoral Friends,
I am very saddened to hear from Rev. Tennyson Chan and Alex (Phyllis’ nephew) that she passed on last week after suffering from a stroke. I have passed deep condolence to Alex and then asked him to pass it to the rest of funeral family. The funeral service will be held at Macquarie Park Cemetery’s one of chapels, Friday 24 November at 2pm. And The service will be officiated by Rev’d David Reichardt in request of Ivan, Phyllis’ son. I plan to attend the service on behalf of EUC. Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers.

The ‘Everything in Common’ stall sells cards to support UnitingWorld projects. The stall will be held at Eastwood UC on Sundays in December, starting 3rd December, with the final stall on 24th December.
The cards are life-changing gifts that help fight poverty and injustice in our world.
Please support the stall!
At Ravenswood, for many years, we have run a special day for Year 10 girls called 'Wisdom of the Elders'. On this day we invite ladies to come to the school and be hosted by a group of students. Each lady will meet with a group of up to 10 students and over a cup of tea and something to eat, they just share their wisdom, particularly about how they came to faith and how it has resourced and sustained them.
This year the Wisdom of the Elders Day will be held on Tuesday 21st November at Ravenswood School for Girls, Henry Street Gordon.
We run it over three sessions across the whole school day. Each of the sessions is approximately 90 minutes long.
During the session ladies will be paired together to join in conversation with a group of 10 -15 x Yr 10 students.
The approximate timing is :
SESSION 1: 8.30am - 10am (followed by Morning tea break)
SESSION 2: 10.30am - 12pm (followed by lunch)
SESSION 3: 1.45pm - 3.15pm
You are more than welcome to join us for lunch which we will provide.
We are now at the stage of firming up our numbers and would love it if this information could be passed on to members of your congregation.
If anyone is able to assist could they please reply to Catherine Leal firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating:
a)whether you are able to join us
b) your preferred session times/s
c) whether you will join us for lunch
d) if you have any specific needs/requirements
The girls love seeing photos or mementos from your life if you have any small pieces of 'show and tell' to bring in, that would be most welcome.
Blessings, The RE Department – Ravenswood School for Girls
