“In Deed and in Truth”

1 John 3 v18

Following on from the 2022 theme,

“Come and You Will See”  John 1 v35-39

we have moved on to

“In Deed and In Truth” 1John 3 v18
At our CWLSA State Conference in 2022,

we heard from many guest speakers

and learnt how we could

put our objects into action.

This year we have moved into action and we are

supporting Centacare with a Statewide CWLSA Project

to provide essential items for women and children

escaping Domestic Violence situations
