Our Annual Assembly papers have now been distributed.  Contact Karen if you need to receive them: karen@riverlands.org.au.

Prayer for activities in our Tasmanian Communities

Since 21 September, series 2 of Evenings With Ann, has been running on the Citywide Baptist Church Hobart YouTube channel.  Evenings With Ann goes to air every weeknight at 8pm. Presented by Citywide’s Ann Herbert, the current series reflects on endings and beginnings and seasons and rhythms in life.

Prayer for an understanding of the impact of Gambling in Tasmania

Every 3 years the Tasmanian Government funds an independent Social & Economic Impact Study into gambling in Tasmania (SEIS). The 2020 SEIS is currently being conducted and there is an opportunity for community input. Your input can be valuable. You do not need to be an expert. Just express your concerns and thoughts. There is an easy online submission form that can be used HERE.

Or if you prefer to make your own written submission, it can be emailed directly to saces@adelaide.edu.au. Public submissions are being accepted by the researchers through to 2 November 2020.

Please note: this is beyond the original date specified, but this time extension has been confirmed.  More info about the SEIS and submissions can be found HERE.  Take 10 minutes today.

Reflect: Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.

Hebrews 7: 22
