Disaster Relief Training with the Warehouse

Let’s be ready to know how best to help when flood or fire strike our communities!

You are warmly invited to a Disaster Relief Training Morning on 4 March 2017. The Warehouse will be explaining and teaching on how churches can get ready ahead of time in order to be prepared to help in times of disaster, whether small numbers or large numbers of people are affected.  We will talk about what is helpful, what is not helpful, and how to go about helping in a sensitive and well-coordinated way. Come and learn from those who have had hands-on experience and have researched the best ways for a church to get stuck in and serve those affected by disasters.

Venue: The Warehouse.

Time: 8.30 for 9am until 12.30 pm.

No cost. RSVP:
