Our Journey So Far
Last update: 13 December 2019
24th of May – Illawarra Prayer Breakfast (Shellharbour Civic Centre)
At the Illawarra Prayer Breakfast, we called church leaders and pastors to embark on a consultative & collaborative approach with these 3 questions.
Does the community you live, work & worship in belong to God?
Is it important for the Local Church to accept responsibility for the stubborn facts that affect human flourishing in our community?
Do you want to connect with other local churches & Christian leaders to develop gospel-inspired solutions to local issues.
1st of August – First Consultation Workshop (Lighthouse Church)
62 church leaders & pastors came together to hear from one another, discuss and workshop on what we can do together for the Illawarra in 3 areas: Community Engagement, Evangelism & Prayer. At the end of the workshop, three task forces are formed to discover, explore and propose what we can do together.
