The lovely people at West End Uniting Church – a wonderful venue for our G20 peoples summit – are holding an ethical xmas market this Sunday and have invited us to have a stall – info and/or goods.
They have lost their roof in the storm but are persisting. I think it would be wonderful to have a stall with our info/bags/tshirsts – even like a jumble stall to raise awareness about what we are doing and to donate some money for their roof… It starts at 3 and ends with carols.
I can commit to being there, helping out and coordinating… I am planning to go early to set up and help draw some chalk pattern/mandala/design outside for people to colour in/elaborate upon.. All help welcome!

Raising the roof for Christmas
Rev Susan Pickering
On Sunday 7th December, the West End Uniting Church on the corner of Sussex and Vulture Streets, West End, will be opening the doors at 3pm for a bit of Christmas shopping.
Minister the Rev Suzie Pickering has organized fair trade stalls selling their wares, Amnesty International and Oxfam sharing information, and a small pre-loved stall to have a browse through.
At 6pm the doors will remain open for Christmas Carols, led by the Brisbane Symphonic Band.
“We will be hoping to raise the roof with Christmas cheer,” says Rev Pickering, “as we sing along to our favourite Christmas Carols.”
The event is free and open to all. Tea and coffee will be available throughout for a gold coin donation.
It’s a great opportunity to get together as a community to celebrate and sing.
Celebrating 129 years of service since the official opening on 15 November, 1885
