What The Blazes?

Home » News » What The Blazes?

You can find out all about BlazeAid from Oz if you come to this week's Tuesday Fellowship at 2.30pm. The speakers, specially flown in from Melbourne Australia are Tony and Tricia Wheeler. OK, so they also came to see family over here, Tricia having been christened at Buckingham Street.

BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, their volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.

Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.

BlazeAid volunteers have come from all parts of Australia, as well as New Zealand, Switzerland, England, Afghanistan, Canada, Germany, Austria, America and France. Their philosophy is not just rebuilding fences, but helping rebuild lives. So come and hear all about it. It's free, with a cup of tea and friendly company.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and...

Pete Honeyball: Thu 10 Jun 5:00am

Love is Pete's theme with this beautiful chapter of 1 Corinthians 13.Love Is Indispensable1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all...
