On the second Sunday of Advent, 8 December 2019, we welcomed Volunteers from Compassion Australia. This is an organisation that helps improve the lives of children around the world e.g. Africa, South America and the Middle East, by directing donor funds through local churches to cover recipients’ educational, medical and other needs. It is an example of the Love of God in action through the work of God’s people and God’s church.
Nigel and Cherie Cooper and their family have sponsored children for many years and the couple now volunteers for the organisation.
