Groups and Activities

Anglican Women of Australia (AWA)

This active group has raised over $60,000 in the past five years for many different types of items needed by the Church. It does this through various activities such as examination invigilation and providing lunches for groups visiting Orange. In addition, there is a regular morning tea ($5 donation) at 10:00am on the second Friday of each month which provides a warm welcome and great fellowship. The Ladies also meet at 2:00pm on the first Friday of each month to plan their future activities. For information call president Lyn Atkins on 6362 4018.
