South Rockhampton churches cut off by floods

Our congregation consists of three worship centres; South Rockhampton Uniting Church, and Bushley Uniting Church and Mount Morgan Uniting Church (both out of town).

Bushley is completely cut off from Rockhampton due to the Neerkol Bridge receiving extensive damage in the flash flooding.

The congregation will likely not gather for worship for several weeks until the bridge is repaired.

Mt Morgan is now accessible, but has been cut off previously.

Several of our out-of-town members have been isolated for up to a week due to flood water and loss of communications.

Only one congregation member has been displaced by the flood.

She is a mum of a young child – her street flooded in both the initial flash flooding and the follow-on flooding.
