NSW & ACT Baptist Churches Drought Response

On behalf of the NSW & ACT Baptist Churches…

Dear Friends,

With alarm we continue to see the deepening impacts of the drought in many parts of NSW and beyond. It’s clear that farmers and rural communities throughout the state are experiencing conditions not endured for many years. Reports from leaders of our churches across these regions aligns with media reporting of the very significant pressure many rural communities are under, and the impacts of this on economic, social, physical and mental health. I had the opportunity to spend time with a number of our pastors and leaders in the west and north of NSW in recent weeks. Our churches in these regions are seeking to minister with the resources they have into their local communities, while at the same time often having people within their own congregations who are severely impacted.

In response to this ongoing situation and the growing desire from churches and individuals across our movement to assist, a NSW & ACT Baptist Drought Response is being initiated.

If you would like to contribute towards supporting farmers and people in regional communities in difficult circumstances due to the drought, you can do this by accessing the below:
