Inspired by intense feeling at the March presbytery meeting, many North Queenslanders have responded to the needs of Australia’s northern most congregation on Thursday Island.
The most eastern congregation, Magnetic Island, donated over $1000 towards materials. Bruce and Rosemary Chamberlain (members of the Bowen Congregation) volunteered to help paint the church.
The presbytery provided airfares. More volunteers will follow to fix windows, repair the manse and upgrade the electrical system.
