The Parish Council and I would like to thank all the co-leaders and their team members, for all their hard work and dedication to God's church here in Roleystone.  With God's help they have put in countless hours behind the scenes.  Thank you Merrily, Barbara, Geoff, Wendy, Bi, Jill, Jane Flacks, Pat Bestow, Trudie, Janice and Jacky. 

Special acknowledgements for my family, Nathan and Jessica, and Armadale Society of Art, who over the years have helped and supported us in many ways including transporting goods, setting up equipment, helping with technology and much more.

Thank you to the very talented artist, artisans and musicians who give their talents, time and their support to this occasion in sharing their experiences and visions of Hope, Peace, Joy, Love, and faith.   2023 we encourage artist to reflect on Community, who, where and what is your community, what does community mean to you?

To our sponsors through the years "Second Chance, Recycling" "Emporium Gifts" "NationWest Aviation, members of our church community. Thank you for trusting in the event's vision and trusting us to hold and present it to the community of Roleystone and beyond.  Thank you for supporting that vision in very practical ways.

We could not have known that the world and our communities would be in so much need of the Joy that comes from God, through us.  We could not have known how much a moment of Joy in difficult years could mean to people, sharing hope for the future, peace in our being and joy and love in community.  

We could, and did, only trust in the path that God had set before us.  We will continue to trust that path.


Rev's Susan Ann Thorpe-Gudgeon
