# 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 are new here, we’d love you to introduce yourself to any of our leaders.
2 No Mayim Chayim until late Jan/early Feb We’d like to remind you that our 2pm Mayim Chayim service is not running until late January or early February.
3 Zoom prayer meetings for Israel The weekly 8pm Zoom prayer meetings for Israel are still running, every Thursday, with the same Zoom details as always, which can be requested by emailing
4 Australia Day weekend – ZulaRoo dedication. Giving financially or various items for ZulaRoo. We are holding a Dedication service on the grounds of the ZulaRoo house in Apollo Bay on Australia Day, Friday 26th of January, from 2pm to 4pm, but you’re welcome to arrive earlier. If you’re wanting to attend but the only way you would be able to come would be if we hire a bus, please see me today or email connect@beithamashiach. com today. We need to know numbers to work out what size bus to hire, and therefore how much you would need to pay. Also, Sarah Bolton is putting together a GoogleSheet list of items needed for ZulaRoo. Please email if you would like the link when it’s available, as you’ll be able to insert your name next to items you can provide, and will be able to see what items others have said they’ll provide. Items like sheets, towels, etc. must be bought new. You can then bring the items down on Australia Day, or post them – you can request the address at our connect email. If at any time you are wishing to financially support ZulaRoo, you can give at or using the ZulaRoo envelopes on the offfering table.
5 Invitation from Paul & Nicole to Australia Day weekend event at ‘Steadfast Overflow’ There is also another event happening on the Australia Day weekend – Friday 26th to Sunday 28th January, which was emailed recently to those of you who are Shomrim HaBrit, but is now open to everyone from Beit HaMashiach who lives in Melbourne. Paul and Nicole invite you to their ‘Steadfast Overflow’ property in Rheola, for fellowship with a variety of activities on offer. There’ll be a meal on the Friday night, a healthy high tea on the Saturday, a bush retreat on Sunday morning and other opportunities to bush walk, do some gardening if you fancy and even get some target practice. Some accommodation will be available but you’ll otherwise need to bring your own tent or caravan. You can join in for 1, 2 or 3 days. Please email Nicole our connect address if you have questions, or if you would like to attend, so she can discuss the details with you.
6 Please look at ‘Lost and Found’ items There are lots of items in the ‘Lost and Found’ tub which is on the pew outside the Babies room. This photo shows the larger items, but there are many smaller items including jewellery. Please have a look to see if anything is yours. Anything not collected by the end of January will be given away.
