Swan Hill Pledge Night 2014

Seven young men and women demonstrated their intention to grow as disciples of Jesus at Swan Hill Cornerstone Community on February 22nd. Witnessed by 100 family, friends, Cornerstone members and local Christians, each young student made a personal statement declaring why they want to be discipled before declaring their willingness to seek first the Kingdom of God during the course of their discipleship training at Cornerstone Community. It was a blessing to have local Christian leaders pray for individual students before they symbolically lit their own candle from “the light of the world”, and place them together at the foot of the cross. Community leader, Jono Dickinson explained that these young Christians were following the example of Jesus and his twelve disciples when he provoked them to take the necessary step from “Come follow me, watch what I do” to “Come follow me, do what I do” (Luke 9:18-27).

Folk@canowindra will gather again at taste Canowindra (Ferguson St) next Sunday Feb 23, from 4-6:15pm.  This is a monthly showcase of accoustic music and poetry from across the region; with open mic performers as well as a feature act.  Performers and listeners are all very welcome, the venue is family friendly, and entry is by donation. 

This month we are very pleased to be welcoming back Joe Wythes from Orange, who has a very strong musical heritage linked with Canowindra.  His influences are from near & far, and include John Wythes, Nerida Cuddy, Ben Nash, Rob Pearce, Bob Dylan, Neil Young.  Joe learnt to play guitar at Canowindra High, then played in a pub band in the inner west of Sydney for 2 years, then played in the John Wythes band based in Canowindra for a number of years.  Now Joe calls himself an “arm chair player”; however his occasional pub solo gigs, as well as his performances at folk@canowindra, along with the Womindra Festival in 2011, have been very well received.

All enquiries: Nerida (0429 048 603).
