# Announcement Details/Script
1 Welcome Shabbat Shalom and welcome to the Beit HaMashiach community announcements. Thank you for joining us in person and online. If you have any questions or prayer requests, please contact us at connect@beithamashiach.com or call 9572 5792. And if you’re a visitor, please introduce yourself to any of our pastoral care team wearing name lanyards, so they can get to know you and give you a voucher for a free barista coffee. Here are the announcements for this week, which are also at beithamashiach.com and you’re welcome to take photos of the slides on the screen.
2 Paul Cohen speaking at both services today, and 10: 30am service 19th Aug We are excited to have Paul Cohen, a lecturer at Celebrate Messiah’s Messianic Training Centre, with us today. In this 10: 30am service he is sharing a message titled “Pinchas’ Battles” and in our 2pm Mayim Chayim Living Waters service, he will be sharing a message titled “Pondering a Psalm”. So we encourage you to stay for that even if you don’t usually. It’s in person only and we will also spend time worshipping God and praying. Paul will also be with us next Shabbat 19th of August, at our 10:30am service only, sharing a message titled “Our Battles”.

And don’t forget our Simcha conference in November, here in our Caulfield Messianic Centre, commencing with a Shabbat dinner Friday night 24th of November and finishing before lunch on Sunday 26th of November. There will be a Youth Camp running at the same time for students in Years 7 to 12. You’ll be able to bring your Youth here Friday afternoon before the conference starts, then they’ll be taken to the campsite in Anglesea, and brought back here Sunday morning.

4 Parking As mentioned last Shabbat, the local council have added more 2-hour parking areas on Saturdays in Bambra Road and side streets near our building. If you can’t find parking without these restrictions, please remember to go out and move your car at the end of the 2-hour period, to avoid fines.
