Note from Evelyn – The Ceilidh Mission trip went very well, we all came back exhilarated after being in the drought area and hearing from the people who are going through such a very difficult time and have done for several years. Their commitment to keeping the churches open, teaching SRE and trusting in the Lord for guidance was so evident everywhere we went. Rev. Peter Tamsett and his wife are certainly being strengthened by the Lord as they care for the three congregations. We were able to give a donation to assist everywhere we went. The hospitality was fantastic.
Next Meeting will be on Wednesday 19th June 2019 at 10.15 am
Evelyn Mill – Home Mission Convenor

Home mission gives a Uniform Allowance to the children of Graduating Students. Home Mission supports church planting situations , revitalised churches and churches in need, Home Mission supports Cross Cultural Ministry, churches in NSW from non-English-speaking backgrounds.
