The Rev Liellie McLaughlin, who was the guest speaker at the State Mission Fellowship in April, has sent us some details about her topic on that day. As you read this you may think of someone who is new to Adelaide and perhaps feeling unsure about life in a new environment whom you might like to tell about this group.
RANDOM ACTS OF WELCOME! A community group to randomly create friendships, family and fun. We are a multicultural, faith friendly, child-happy group of random friendly people ... wanting to create friendship and a sense of belonging for people new in Adelaide.
Liellie writes: Being new in a place can be daunting, time-consuming and stressful. It can also be a lonely time as you do not know other people going through the same problems/situations as you do. It can be expensive as you may not know about health cover, ambulance cover, op-shops or markets. Come and share your questions and maybe someone will be able to give advice or help you. You never know until you ask! Welcome All!
