Court House Ministry

Volunteers of the Court House Ministry provide refreshments for those attending the court, which sits twice monthly on a Wednesday.
Tea, coffee, chocolate drink (for kids) and biscuits are served on the covered paved area outside the court. For some, appearing before a magistrate can be a daunting, if not frightening, experience. Often those appearing may bring along a large support group of family and friends. Refreshments and a chat can often help to relieve the stress.

If you are interested in joining this ministry, please contact the Parish office on (02) 5543 7683.
