    Thursday mornings are a highlight of my week. At 10am each Thursday (during school terms) around 30 people meet for church.

  • Gong Men’s Day

    Here are some of the Jannali Anglican men who went to the Gong Mens’ Day last Saturday (17th June). The other half were talking outside when the photo was taken. What made the morning valuable? It was a bargain and well organised.$25/$35 for a half day conference including a roast
