Murbko Ladies Guild

Murbko Ladies Guild continue to meet on the third Tuesday afternoon of each month. Bible Study from the Lutheran Womenis led by Pastor Peter Traeger and is the highlight of our meetings.

In April 2018, three members joined the Swan Reach Christian Women’s Group on a trip to Adelaide. …

Lifeway Women’s Fellowship – Epping, NSW

The Lifeway Women’s Fellowship at Epping consists of those who are able to meet during the week and members who cannot, for one reason or another, attend daytime meetings, but who like to keep up with the excellent articles and news in Lutheran Women. Some time ago, we tried three Saturday afternoon meetings at the suggestion of a member who worked fulltime. Unfortunately, it wasn’t successful, as those who work have many commitments and found it difficult to slot another weekend activity into their busy schedule. The trial was abandoned as …

Service with a smile

As the age of the population increases, so does the need for more aged care villages. More recently, greater diversity in the aged care sector has seen a greater offer of independent living, hostel or semi-dependent living, general nursing home care and secure nursing home facilities. The variety and scope provided is as varied as the number of operators providing these facilities. Our readers are sure to be aware of the many aged care facilities that the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand operate, providing not only attention to …
