Leaving a Living Legacy
As a result of the impact of the COVID-19 virus and resulting effects on all gatherings, I wish to advise you, of the cancellation of the planned 2020 National Grandparent Conference which was set down for the 29th and 30th May 2020.
Whilst many of us will be disappointed, it is paramount that this decision is taken in order to abide by the directives and guidelines issued by both our Government and the Health Authorities. It is my intention to run this conference once again in 2021 and we will keep you all informed regarding any future dates.
I am incredibly thankful for all those who have already registered and for our sponsors, Anglicare, Bible Society, Koorong and the Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort Center. Over the coming weeks refunds will be provided to all those who have registered.
A word to all Grandparents and Ministry leaders — While we are all in the most vulnerable age range, we are also in the most fortunate position to be able to live out our hope and trust in the Lord in the face of such uncertainty. If there was ever a time for Grandparents to be praying and to be living out their faith, now is that time. May God continue to watch over us all.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth… the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore”.
— Psalm 121
