Reverend Michael and Chloe Pailthorpe were recently featured in Regional Lifestyle Magazine – Queanbeyan-Palerang Feature.
The piece highlights their ministry in Bungendore and the thriving Phil’s Emporium Op Shop which they operate in partnership with Anglicare.
In addition to Mike’s ministry, they coordinate a team 40 volunteers at Phil’s Emporium Op Shop, run a community food hub and an Anglicare disaster recovery team!
We love seeing Mike and Chloe putting so much heart into connecting and caring for the wonderful community in Bungendore.
Wonderful reading about Chloe & Mike who are 2 of the most amazing people we’ve ever been fortunate enough to meet
We were unexpectedly stranded in Bungendore when Covid changed the world…our 6 week visit to my daughter turned into a 6 month stay
We were so grateful for their help & support during this time especially as your winter meant our summer clothes were packed away..the Op shop was amazing & as things slowly reopened our Saturday morning visits became part of our lives
Back in the Uk now we really miss them & the other volunteers we met
A big thanks to Chloe & Mike
