Prayer for our Annual Assembly and State Council

Our Assembly last weekend was a great time of fellowship, inspiration and learning and prayer. Stephen Baxter, Mary Dickins (Fostering Hope) and Jenna Blackwell each provided fresh insight into the times in which we live and the gospel opportunities that are before us. Four workshops were well attended. It was great to hear diverse stories of how God is at work in and through our churches.

Our state Council meets next Saturday. Assembly elected five new Councillors.

Reflect: No longer will a man teach his neighbour or a man his brother, saying, “Know the Lord,” because they will all know me.
