Corner of Church St and Market St Wollongong 8am, 9:30am, 11am, 5pm & 7pm each Sunday
In August, Mission of the Month giving is directed towards WCCEB – the Wollongong Combined Churches Education Board.
This interdenominational Board, with representatives from many local churches, has been operating for many years supporting the employment and placement of paid SRE (Special Religious Education, a.k.a. ‘Scripture’) teachers in local high schools. It is funded entirely by donations from local churches, businesses and individuals.
In 2019, WCCEB provides ministry via teachers in 4 schools as follows:
• Samar Mikhael at Smiths Hill High School.
• Heather Grant at Illawarra Sports High School, Berkeley.
• Georgia Clements at Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts.
• Jonny Hann at Keira Technology High School.
As well as teaching SRE classes to potentially close to 1500 students, they also help run Christian lunch-time groups – sometimes featuring “toasties and chats”.
Please pray that teachers will build good relationships with students and others school staff and that they will be bold when teaching the gospel of Jesus. Give thanks to God for Christian staff in these schools and pray for their wisdom in Christian witness. Also pray that enemies of appropriate Christian ministry in schools will not have their way, and that God would keep doors of opportunity open for Christian ministry in public schools as part of appropriate expression of freedom of religion in our multi-cultural society.
