Evangelismos Youth: A 'Bowl-tastic' Evening

Last Friday, being the last time that we would meet up as a group for the year, we thought something special was in order. So, what did we do? We went bowling!

What a great turnout we had! It was great to see everyone again, with so many new faces joining us also.
Having arrived at the bowling centre on Greek time, we selected our groups, traded in our shoes, and put on our game faces. Let the games begin! The balls started flying. It was quite funny watching the different bowling styles and techniques. We had the infamous speed bowlers, sliding bowlers, and those that felt the pins were just taunting them. After we had finished bowling, or for some, performing, we sat down and enjoyed some hot chips and friendly conversation. We shared a few laughs, made some friends, and got a good workout. It was definitely a successful night.

Above all of that, what we most loved about the night was the enthusiasm from those who came to support us and what we're about. Those who appreciate the work that we do behind the scenes to make these events possible. Those who are eager to see what next year will bring.

For those of you that weren't able to make it, we've uploaded some photos to our gallery here. Be sure to subscribe to our website, if you haven't already done so, for information on future events.

Technical Update

A couple of weeks ago, as you may know, our website was down while we looked into an issue. We would just like to report that all services have been restored and our website is fully functional again. A huge thank you goes out to our hosting provider, Zain Digital, who worked behind the scenes to rectify the issue. They are a Melbourne-based company, and helped us to launch version two of our website, about a year ago. We would also like to thank everyone for their support during this past couple of weeks. Our site serves as a means by which we can keep you informed on all matters of our Church and Faith, regardless of location, and we hope to continue this, only growing stronger with time.

The Foreign Factories (c. 1965)
In foreign factories
I work night and day
With the hope in my heart
To see a better (white) day

Black Night, White Day, a 45 year study telling the stories of 78 single Greek women who left their homelands to settle in Australia. Selected and trained in domestic work and English before arriving, it was hoped their settlement would reduce the gender imbalance created by many single Greek males living in Australia. Interviews with the girls prior to their departure and again in 1965, 1976, 1990 and 2006, together with photographs, provide an insightful and inspirational experience for the reader. Black Night, White Day shows migrant women are strong, resilient and central to the
processes of migration and adaptation. RRP$45; No credit card/eftpos facilities.
