As life-long disciples and followers of Jesus, we’re always learning and growing in our faith.
We grow in faith as the good news of Christ transforms us and we trust God more and more (the word “faith” just means “trust”). Our parish provides a number of opportunities to grow:
We grow as we pray together. You’re invited to join us as we pray for each other, our community and the world. We meet on the fourth Thursday of every month at Walla Lutheran church hall from 8.00pm. Contact Pastor Dan for more details.
Ladies Coffee & Chat
All women are invited to gather on the third Tuesday of every month at Walla church hall for coffee and chat. Coffee at 10am, followed by devotion and Bible study, then other business.
