Combined effort for our chaplains

Laidley Christian denominations will combine forces to raise funds towards a good cause.

The Laidley Combined Churches will continue a long standing tradition to host their annual chaplaincy dinner next Friday, May 13.

The chaplaincy dinner will consist of four courses dished out at the Laidley Cultural Centre and will raise money for school chaplaincy in the Lockyer Valley.

Laidley Combined Churches committee member Sandy Green said the event used to be a progressive dinner which travelled from church to church.

But, in recent years, had shifted to the Laidley Cultural Centre for convenience.

“The main focus for this is a get together for fellowship time with all the other churches with the funds raised going towards chaplains,” Mrs Green said.

“Chaplains are there to support staff and students and are there as mentors and do programs with the kids.”

She said the night was themed ‘Children are our Future’ and would include humorous skits, singing and other entertainment.

Elizabeth Torres-Russell, from Vision Media, will be the guest speaker on the night.

The chaplaincy dinner raised more than $3000 last year and Mrs Green hoped to once again have a nice turnout.
