Soup and song to help in celebration
THIS year Warwick's Uniting Church marks 150 years of worshipping in town.
Pastor Jenny Potter said the church had been worshipping since 1859.
“One of the things Warwick Churches Together are doing on Sunday afternoon (4.30pm) at the Uniting Church Hall is the Soup and Song event to help children in underprivileged countries have a better Christmas,” Mrs Potter said.
“We are asking everyone to fill a shoe size box with gifts themed something for play, for schools, for hygiene and for love - basically fill a box with gifts for people that don't get gifts during Christmas.
“Soup and Song is for everyone in the community and across all the churches in town.”
Mrs Potter said she was proud to have been a church representative from Warwick at the recently concluded national assembly in Sydney.
“Every three years our church has a national assembly ... this year we had it from July 15 to July 21.
“It brings together 260 people from all across Australia within the Uniting Church,” she said.
“We had discussions connected with the church and we had representatives within our sister churches from Pacific and Asian countries.
“It's been a long time since someone from Warwick had the opportunity to go as a voting member.”
She said the enthusiastic church members had also been involved in the community spirit by decorating tree jumpers for the Jumpers and Jazz in July Festival.
