Dorrigo Missions Trip

May 27 @ 8:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

Dorrigo is a small town serving a regional plateau area inland from Coffs Harbour.  It lies at the top of a mountain pass on the road between Coffs Harbour and Armidale.   There are about 1100 people in the town and about 3,000 in the district.  It has five small church congregations:  Anglican, Catholic, Uniting, Seventh Day Adventist and Pentecostal.  The combined church attending total is not more than 100 people.

As many of you would already know, we have been involved with the churches of Dorrigo for a couple of years.  In February of this year two separate teams of intercessors/ministry people visited Dorrigo for the launch of a new kingdom of God outreach enterprise involving all of the churches, but specifically a team of people who were willing to be commissioned to pray and engage in deliberate gospel proclamation and disciple-making ministry.  In February the each team went for four days.  One came from Adelaide and the second from a few places – Port Macquarie, Newcastle and the Gold Coast.  it was a wonderful team effort and God’s presence stirred the hearts of the people to a new level of unity and hope.

The work there is being owned by the churches but resources are being made available by Crosslink churches from various places around the country. Pastors Graham and Dianne Hore have been working there for extended periods of time and have been doing a terrific job of encouraging and facilitating the work.

We plan to go again for the week beginning Monday May 27th through till the following Saturday June 1st (inclusive of travel).

I would love to be able to invite members of Grace Canberra to join us for this next ministry time.

The idea would be to travel either Sunday afternoon with a stopover somewhere and arrive Monday  OR for those who are hardy, we could travel up in one long 8 hour drive.  The idea would be to arrive by the evening of Monday 27th.

Each day we will be involved in prayer, worship and ministry sessions with local people and we will also be going out to do some prayer assignments around the town and the district.

Each evening we will have some different meetings and gatherings with the people from the churches – both teaching, worship and ministry.  We will hear reports about the  work and pray specifically for the work itself.

The idea would be to head for home on Friday.  I, myself will be staying till Sunday and if all the members of our team were able, we could all stay and be involved in the weekend church meetings and a final combined gathering on Sunday evening.

Accommodation will be provided at no cost by the church people from the various churches.

As you can see, some of the details are yet to be finalised depending on people’s availability, so we will talk together and work out what is possible.
