~HIGHLIGHTS~  

The Christmas Spirit is alive and well at the Echuca Moama Uniting Church

Echuca Moama Uniting Church is opening its Santa’s Workshop and Toy Distribution following the easing of COVID19 restrictions.

Santa’s Workshop is a volunteer run initiative selling cards, decorations and small gifts for family, friends, stocking fillers, Kris Kringle and thank you for kindness these past months.  There is a $10 fee to submit items for sale but all proceeds go to the makers.

The Toy Distribution is traditionally run by Echuca Moama Projects in the Chapel at the Uniting Church.  This is available to families who have struggled this past year with many challenges along the journey.  This will be held on the three Wednesdays before Christmas.  December 9th, 16th and 23rd.  Time is 10am-1pm.  This will be staffed by volunteers who give generously of their time.

If any individuals, groups, schools or organisations would like to use their creative skills and display a Christmas Tree in the Hall they will be accepted on Friday, December 11th in the afternoon.

Santa’s Workshop will be open from Saturday, December 12 through to Saturday, December 19 from 10am-2pm each day except for Sunday.

The entrance to the Church, Chapel and Hall is on Hare Street, corner of Pakenham Street in the centre of town.
