Ecumenical Service for Parliament 2017

On Tuesday 7th February 2017 at St Christopher’s Cathedral, Forrest there will be an Ecumenical Service to commemorate the commencement of the Australian Parliament for 2017. The event will commence at 7.30am and conclude at approximately 8.15am.

The Parliamentary Christian Fellowship has issued an invitation to all Churches reminding us that this service is an opportunity to remember our privileges and responsibilities before God and to ask for His blessing on our nation.

The Sermon will be delivered by the Rev David Campbell, Senior Minister of the Presbyterian Church of St Andrew, Forrest.
