reflections

Two churches worship usually at the same time in the various buildings. Today they combined for worship. Next door is the church school. We know that Hurstville has had a marked growth in Asian population over the past two decades. But it’s banner for Christ stands tall....

We found the church at a new address from our last visit. Yes, were aware that this church family is in the process of building a new church. There are all the headaches of dealing with the local Council, pacifying neighbours’ concerns, the stress of funding and keeping...

Our visit to Stanmore certainly took our minds back to the Adventist pioneer days. The church building is 120 years old, the pulpit is one used by Ellen White, the pipe organ was built and installed just 4 years after being built. A wonderful painting (provide pic) by...

We have visited this unique church before and we knew a little of their challenges. But now they have a new pastor with energy, talent and passion for his church family, providing the environment for mission. We experienced authentic gut reaction to worship, innocent, willing child involvement, and...

This was our second program of encouragement to patients, initiated by the hospital Chaplains.

Here is our “home church”. We feel so supported and encouraged by this church’s leadership. We wanted to give back a little. So we tried to ensure we created a worshipful but joyous atmosphere. You have helped us over the years with a place to practice,...

This was MOH s first visit. Hopefully we can be invited back. We loved the enthusiasm of your pastor, the soaring steeple, from inside it’s as though we need to reach heavenward for help. Two churches combined for the day. Your friendship is infectious. WE sincerely...

Many in the group have not visited Fairfield before. A unique church with cramped property, hemmed in by low rise unit blocks, being close to the railway station. This community has changed dramatically over the years with high immigration numbers, the highest per capita pokie machines in the...

Our visit was to the Plus One church, but we first made a quick stop over at the Avondale Memorial church for the first part of Sabbath school. A more traditional church service is held here and we recognized many members who have served the church with distinction for...

We are encouraged by the support of the church pastor and the expertise of the A/V team. We have added pressure to do our best seeing the service is televised. There is a strong vibe to grow the impact of this church in its...
