A change in format in 2019 + an opportunity to give!
This year we're excited to be holding OneLove in the central location of the beautiful Sydney Town Hall. We can’t wait to enjoy the character and convenience that this historic site holds. This iconic building does however provide us with some logistical challenges. Unfortunately, our traditionally held afternoon high tea simply won’t work in the space available. While disappointing, this does provide OneLove delegates with some new and exciting opportunities for fellowship and giving.
With the money previously allocated to providing the afternoon tea, we have the opportunity to bless some of our rural sisters in Christ at a time of particular hardship in country NSW.
We are currently in discussions with regional churches in some drought-stricken communities of NSW – the devastations of the drought have left these brothers and sisters in desperate need. The money that we can give them will be used to buy vouchers from local small businesses for necessities like groceries, fuel, and repair services, that the church can then distribute to needy families within their local communities who are currently suffering from economic hardship.
We hope that you will pray with us that in making this change to the OneLove format this year, it will enable a real and concrete blessing to those in need and provide an opportunity for these churches to reach out to their communities for Christ.
