Highlights from the Blessing Day and AGM
  • Welcome to Ben Norman as a newly appointed Board member, and continuing thanks to Alex Safran as he commences his second term on the Board.
  • Thanks were offered to retired Board member, Fiona Hill, for her work on the Board last year.
  • The final Celtic-style Worship Service was held last November. Keryn Tolé, Coby Brown and Marg Donald were thanked for preparing and leading these services over the years, and presented with a book of the Celtic-style Worship Services they led from 2007-2015 (a copy can be downloaded here).
  • Follow these links to read the blessings and songs which were offered during the service:

Richard Fay returns to Melbourne (Sunday 20 March, 7pm)
  • Following on from his popular talk on the Male Spiritual Journey in 2015, WellSpring welcomes back Richard Fay from the Centre for Men to talk about The Demise of the White Male System. Everyone is welcome (not just men)!
  • Richard Fay comes from a corporate and ministry background and is now the CEO of Centre for Men and Families. Richard and CFM provide counselling for men and also run the annual Men’s Rights of Passage event, a week-long intensive for men seeking a deeper connection with life. Richard’s passion is to be alongside other broken men on the path to transformation.
  • No cost; please let us know if you are coming.

Keep the Doors Open!

We want Wellspring to be open every weekday! It is so disappointing to find a locked door when you were expecting a friendly welcome.
Currently we do not have enough Reception volunteers to have WellSpring open every weekday between 9.30am and 4pm. This is not good!

If you are interested, or know of someone else who might be, please contact Ann. Volunteers could come in for half a day weekly, fortnightly or even monthly. It is also helpful to have people who can fill in occasionally when regular volunteers are unavailable.
