As we move into this new school year we focus on HOPE.
Given the devastating bushfires and the drought we ask God to keep us hopeful and send much needed rain to our parched country. We give thanks for the men and women who courageously fought the fires and will continue to do so. Keep them safe and the lives of those populating the areas on fire. We continue to keep in our prayers the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives in the tragic fires.
PRAYER OF HOPE 2020
A New Year's Prayer Lord,
You make all things new.
You bring hope alive in our hearts And cause our Spirits to be born again.
Thank you for this new year For all the potential it holds.
Come and kindle in us A mighty flame so that in our time, many will see the wonders of God and live forever to praise Your glorious name.Amen
Congratulations to Angus and Mel Westaway on the birth of Mia, a gorgeous baby sister for Toby and Ky.
