For faithful teaching as Kara teaches to women around the diocese.
For Sydney as they continue to stand firm in God’s Word.
Southside Anglican, Brisbane, Australia
Peter Judge-Mears is the pastor of Southside Anglican, one of five churches in the Diocese of the Southern Cross. In this next video, Peter explains how Southside has come to be, and why this new Diocese is needed.
Give thanks to God for his generosity to Southside Anglican during this time, in provision of material and people.
Pray for Southside as they strive to contend for the gospel with limited resources.
Pray that Southside would reach out beyond themselves, that the time of grieve and mourning will give way to a yearning to see the gospel go forward.
