FREE Lunch - with interactive cooking demo!

july food lunch.png

Join us for our July Lunch & Learn, hosted by Cancer Council WA. All welcome!

Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in Australia. However when caught early, up to 90% of those diagnosed with bowel cancer will beat it! Screening is the best way to reduce deaths from bowel cancer through early detection, but participation rates are too low.

Join us to find out how you can reduce your risk of bowel cancer and participate in an easy healthy cooking demonstration which we all get to feast on at the end.

Please RSVP with the link provided so we know numbers for catering.

RSVP at - https://memberlunch-w-interactivecooking.eventbrite.com.au

2 Fri 15 November - we sing at Seniors Week lunch, 12-1?

We now have Silent Night in Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian and German, the top French carol and a pile of Polish carols. Please keep looking for Christmas carols in other languages.

And, of course please email me any song you like in any language. And invite family and friends to join our friendly, fun-loving, adventurous choir. Kids welcome.

Creation Ministries International

Dr Don Batten.jpg

Answers to the Big Questions in Life.
Presented by: Dr Don Batten

Dr Batten is a respected specialist in tropical fruit research (plant biology). Prior to working with Creation Ministries International, he conducted a number of nationally-funded research projects, publishing his results in science journals. As an experienced research scientist he is well qualified to show that evolutionary theory has nothing to do with how the real world works. Don’s knowledge and passion for the Bible will help you and others understand how well the Bible fits the evidence we see around us.

Don communicates effectively with young and old and is able to equip and help Christians defend their faith in a so–called ‘age of science’. After one of his presentations, one pastor wrote:

“Professional, Christian, Bible–based, scientifically sound, a pleasure to hear, confirming of faith in the Word….”

SHAUN KIRK amazing 1 man Blues/Roots @ Cutler & Smith

shaun-kirk.jpg

Youngish Melbourne Bluesman Shaun Kirk returns to Geraldton after a stellar performance at last years Nukara Music Festival to play an intimate gig at The Backroom.

Hailing from the music filled streets of Melbourne, Australia; award winning blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk is a born entertainer who’s world class live show is pushing the boundaries and taking audiences by storm.

Kirk’s gritty vocal abilities come from a place beyond his years and has seen him labelled as “one of the finest blues voices Australia has ever heard” (Buzz Mag); whilst his vintage guitar tones and raw grooves pay homage to his influences of both yesteryear and today to create a sound of his own.

Following the release of ‘Howlin at the Moon’ in early 2018, Kirk’s subsequent launch tour achieved some 10 sold out shows across Australia & New Zealand, as well as another appearance at the world famous Bluesfest, Byron Bay. His latest single ‘Save My Soul’ co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Mick Turner) is out now.

Tickets only $20 from www.musicglue.com (only 100 tix)
