THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD, AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD:
AGE SHALL NOT WEARY THEM, NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN.
AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN,
AND IN THE MORNING,
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
Anzac Day is a day for commemoration, for thanking the veterans, those who gave their lives and those still serving - it's also part of our national story.
This year is different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however Australian communities can still take part in the Anzac Day service - just not in the usual way. Balconies, driveways, porches and front yards will become places of reflection at 6am on Anzac Day for a minute’s silence to honour our veterans and active service people.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
Praise to the God of All Comfort
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

MarionLIFE is still operating as an essential service and we’re working hard to continue being a source of enrichment and hope for the community.
MarionLIFE Emergency Relief Service is continuing to operate, with a management plan in place. We welcome donations of non-perishable in-date food & hygiene items for our Emergency Pantry.
All of our other Services are suspended or postponed and this is likely to remain the case for a number of months however we have launched THE STAYING TOGETHER PROJECT to bring people together, connecting volunteers with those in our neighbourhood who want someone to check in with them through the coming months.
Register your interest here https://marionlife.org.au/thestayingconnectedproject
We invite you to contact us any me, by phone 82770304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d value hearing how you’re going.

Thank you to everyone who is working behind the scenes in these new spaces to bring you MCC online services and connect with you.
Autumn is here and it's the end of Daylight Savings this weekend.
When local daylight time is about to reach
Sunday, 5 April 2020, 3:00:00 am clocks are turned backward 1 hour to
Sunday, 5 April 2020, 2:00:00 am local standard time instead.
Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on 5 Apr 2020 than the day before. There will be more light in the morning.
Last week we had many wonderful, encouraging comments about our first steps into doing our church services online during this challenging period of time.
This week we are continuing this new style of MCC church services online at 10am and 6pm with WORSHIP, COMMUNION REFLECTION and SERMON - and the ability to utilise the chat area to connect with one another by praising God and uplifting those who have participated behind the scenes.
