funding for the uk trip

We’ve realised over the years that we’ve been running the UK trip that sources of funding for trips like this are biased towards ministers and church employees – in fact, we haven’t been able to find any grants that lay people who aren’t employed by the church are able to apply for… While we don’t have a long term solution to that quite yet, we have been able to locate a source of money that we can use to help a couple of people a little this year… If you’re a lay person from Victoria and Tasmania, and you’re interested in coming on the UK trip, but money is a problem, then we hope that you’ll get in touch with us. We have up to three grants of up to $2000. Email me and I’ll let you know what we need to know.

The inevitable weather comment… it was still 40 degrees Celsius at 9pm last night when I got home after the commute from hell. I was rescued by a friend when i was 1 1/2 hours into a journey that normally takes 15 minutes total, with the promise of it taking at least another 1 1/2 hours to get home by train / bus / walk … The train tracks on my line had buckled in the heat – Melbourne is literally melting. It’s predicted to reach 43 today, 3 more days of this to go… and yet again i’m so very glad I don’t live in Adelaide where it’s going to be hot for much, much longer than that…
