Increase and warm welcome of  new members
We have enjoying  new people choosing St Hilda’s, and we have been happy to learn that  they  have felt warmly welcomed and are enjoying  worshipping with us.

9 metre ‘Mobile’ art work:  a pillar of flames over the font
Pentecost mission flames painted by  members over the weeks since Whitsunday have been assembled into a  very attractive  9 meter high mobile. Each flame represents in colour  each person’s commitment to offer their gifts to St Hilda’s to  enable new Christians to be made and  new members  to find a home and an purpose in our congregation
