FRESH HOPE COMMUNITY CHURCH
Cnr Norton and Poppet Roads, Wamboin NSW 2620
The St Andrew’s church was built with donations for construction costs, furniture and fittings and land from early residents in Wamboin, and is sustained from gifts from Christians living in Wamboin. St Andrew’s congregation is small enough to enable all members to know each other and to enjoy each other’s company. Subject to Diocesan and Parish practice, decisions for the church are made by the whole congregation at annual and quarterly meetings, rather than through a representative council. People from all Christian backgrounds are actively welcome to join in services conducted at St Andrew’s. St Andrew’s also has a strong association, and intends to deepen the relationship, with St Peter’s Sutton. Church services alternate between the two, and there are currently a number of people who attend both services and participate in joint Lenten Studies. New members and visitors are always most welcome.

St Mary’s was opened in 1862 and comprises a small but growing community located about 80 km to the east of Canberra - the national capital city of Australia. Members of St Mary’s Bungendore come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Being within an hour’s drive of Canberra and Queanbeyan many residents live in Bungendore and work in those nearby centres. There are many rural parishioners such as the Darmody and Reardon families being descendants of the original settlers. The new estate of Elmslea is adjacent to the town and is home to parishioners with young families. Mass is celebrated on Sunday mornings commencing at 8.30 am and visitors are most welcome. Mass is also celebrated at various times at other churches in the Parish – details can be found under the pages for each of the outlying churches.
Once a month, morning tea is served after mass on Sunday morning. It provides a great opportunity for parishioners to further bond the already obvious good spirit of our church community. Please come and join us.

March and Commemorative Service: Robert Munday 02 6238 1342, Keith Gascoine 02 6238 1122 and Jack Towell 02 4842 1593
ANZAC Day is probably Australia's most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand Army Corps during the Great War.
It is an occasion of national remembrance, which takes two forms. Commemorative services are held at dawn, the time of the original landing, across the Nation. Later in the day, ex-servicemen and women meet to take part in marches through the major cities and in many smaller centres. Commemorative ceremonies are more formal and are held at war memorials that honour people, not war. In Bungendore, the March usually includes serving and ex-serving personnel, children from the Bungendore Public School, the Light Horse re-enactment unit, a contingent of Australian Federal Police including its Ceremonial Horse Unit and the Canberra Pipes and Drums.
