This afternoon the Anglican Church of Noosa (Rector, The Rev’d Mark Calder) had the great delight of hosting the annual Commissioning Service of SU Chaplains and RE Teachers. It was a great opportunity for the churches of Noosa to come together in support and prayer for these vital ministries. Pastor Mark Nitschke (Good Shepherd, Lutheran) led us in the commissioning, whilst we also had the opportunity to hear of the joys and challenges of RE Teaching and Chaplaincy by the Rev’d Simon Keith (Children’s Ministry Leader, Anglican Church of Noosa), Warren Evans (Secretary, Local Chaplaincy Committee, SU), and Shane Briggs (Chaplain, Noosaville District High School). Pastor Paul Holden (Noosa Baptist) led us in prayer and the Rev’d Simon Keith preached from Philippians 2:1-11 (you can listen to the sermon here). Please continue to pray for the RE Teachers and Chaplains in our region and consider supporting them financially.
