My ministry idea—Bray Park Community Craft group
The Bray Park Community Craft group meets each Tuesday morning at the Bray Park Seventh-day Adventist church (North NSW). They have been busy learning to make cards, flower arranging, and some of the ladies do their own things such as knitting, crochet, embroidery and tapestry.
There is an average of 20-30 non-Adventists attending each week, and they love the fellowship with one another, as many live on their own and it is their only outlet.
At 9.30 each morning we pause for a worship time of 10 minutes and they enjoy the story or talk that is presented and will ask if we could pray for family or friends who are sick or have other problems.
Each year the Sydney Adventist Hospital sends a medical team to Fiji and other places to do open heart surgery on those less fortunate, and so some of the craft group have been making trauma teddies, rugs, beanies, socks, pillows and jumpers to send to Fiji to give to the patients.
It’s been amazing the response this project has had on the community, as there are people making things who don’t even come to craft group—but know someone who does—and we are very grateful for their commitment.
Please pray for this group.
