    This event is open to all the community; men and women, young and old, Muslim and people of other/no faith background - all welcome!

    Hope to see you there!

    Peace & Blessings to you and your family,

    Another year is upon us and we pray that it is filled with Divine Mercy and Love to all.

    Benevolence ended 2011 with a very successful fundraiser dinner where all the proceeds raised have gone towards purchasing Benevolence House.
     
    This year apart from our weekly programs and monthly events, we are very excited about introducing two new programs: Bene Kids will be launching 'Teen' - a class for young teenagers aged 12-16. Convert Care will also be introducing a fortnightly educational/social program for converts and Muslims reconnecting. Please take a look at our website for full information about all our events and initiatives www.BenevolenceAustralia.org.
     
    We look forward to working with you in creating a positive and uplifting space in our community.
     
    Peace and prayers
    Saara Sabbagh

    Pack a picnic rug and invite your family and friends to a night of storytelling under the stars with international guests Usama Canon, Micah Anderson, and Mustafa Davis on Christmas Eve!

    Join us for a special evening where stories from the Islamic tradition drift through the fading summer evening light. Interwoven within each line are thousands of meanings and lessons for those who see with other than sight. If a picture tells a thousand words, then a story gives a thousand teachings. Settle in for a night of light-hearted entertainment and deep reflections.

    FREE event, refreshments provided.
