Friday Friends

st-gs-shoebox-packing-sun-22-92

Friday Friends is a craft group who enjoy meeting together to prepare items for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes that are then sent as Christmas gifts to poor children in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Fiji or New Guinea.They meet on Friday mornings, during school terms, from 10am to noon from February to October. All are welcome to come and join us!

The group undertakes a wide variety of tasks to suit all interests and abilities – for example, machine sewing clothes, picture books and soft toys; hands sewing such as buttons on dresses and pencil cases; knitting simple toys and beanies; and covering and packing boxes.

We sell these items at reasonable prices to fill the boxes. The money raised from the sales help us with the transport costs required.

Friday Friends enjoy developing friendships with others who share an interest in craft and a passion for the work of Operation Christmas Child.

Please contact Jenny Martensz through the church office if you would like to know more.
