PCA Vanuatu Appeal

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Australia writes:

Dear Friends,

I have been shocked as we all have to see the desperate affects of Tropical Cyclone Pam on the islands of Vanuatu.

There has been widespread damage and at this stage it is feared high loss of life.

The Presbyterian Church of Australia has a unique relationship with the Church in Vanuatu, we have a long history of Ni Vanuatuan students training for ministry in Australia, and have had a strong connection with the Bible Training College in Talua.

At this stage we dont know of about loss at Talua, the worst impact of the cyclone was in the south, whereas Talua is in the north.

Please pray for Vanuatu, pray for relief to be provided, pray that there will be selfless rescue and generous love shown both from those on the ground in Vanuatu and neighbouring nations.

The Australian Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop has said that our nation is responding along with New Zealand with immediate aid.

Here is an opportunity for the church to be in the vanguard of the relief effort, I therefore urge all Ministers and Sessions to bring this need before your congregations both for prayer and financial gifts.

Cheques should be made payable to

The Presbyterian Church of Australia is a part of the Christian Church throughout the world. The Church’s name comes from the Greek word presbuteros, which is the word for an elder or a mature Christian leader in the New Testament. The use of the name Presbyterian reflects the Church’s aim to be faithful to the Bible’s teaching on the Church, even in the 21st Century. In its wider use, the name Presbyterian has also come to include the distinctive doctrine, discipline, worship, laws and practice of the churches which returned to Biblical standards in Europe at the time known as the Reformation.

 

Date of Next Meeting of the General Assembly of Australia.
