Prayer in a time of bushfire

Bishop Kate Prowd has called parishes in the Oodthenong Episcopate to pray for all those who have been affected by this summer’s fires, on Sunday 2 February at 5pm. This service is one of many taking place at the same time, as we join in prayer for comfort, healing and renewal.
Everyone is welcome.
