The Claremont Junior Football Club will be holding a Cancer Council fundraiser on the 7th of July. As

Many of us know someone who has been through, maybe going through, or sadly lost someone due to
this cruel disease.
This is our chance to help out and we would love to ask for you to join and help fight Cancer.
Our Canteen at our club operates on a Friday night whilst our boys and girls train and Sunday game

Mid Year Conference: The Cross of Christ – 10th-13th July—


During the last week of the mid year holidays, Mid Year Conference explores a major biblical theme through sermons, small groups, personal study and theological seminars.
