If you, like a lot of people, are disgusted and disappointed by the way asylum seekers and refugees and being treated by the government, then consider coming along to this meeting. This gathering will discuss ways that concerned Bendigonians can publicly express support for asylum seekers and refugees and call the government to a better way.
It won’t be planning direct assistance to refugees – there are bunch of organisations in Central Victoria who do this very well. But what is possibly lacking is a public and visible voice of the average Australian who wants our government’s policies to change.
Come along to plan something that will communicate our support for asylum seekers and refugees.
Date: Wednesday 26th February
Place: St Matthew’s, 153 Eaglehawk Rd, Long Gully

At St Matthew’s we do a bunch of stuff that anyone can be involved, not matter what take you have on religion and spirituality – there is the garden, toy library, playgroup etc.
But we are also pretty passionate about following Jesus – if that’s something that interests you, provokes you, intrigues you… then come along this Sunday 10am to Gully Gathering.
Gully Gathering is a down to earth and simple church service. You can expect some songs, discussion about Jesus, prayers for our world and people in need, and a kid-friendly environment.
You can also expect pancakes.
