Despite the fact that it was a cold , wet winter’s evening 45 people gathered at St Matthew’s Anglican Church, Wingham for the regular 4pm Contemporary Service on June 19.
26 members of the congregation came from Manning Valley Anglican College (MVAC) including two members of the music team; Mrs Lauren Baker and Mr Todd Saunders who are teachers at MVAC.
A number of MVAC primary and secondary school students assisted in the service which was lead by the Rector of Wingham Parish, the Rev’d Brian Ford. The theme of the service was God’s amazing grace and generosity as shown in the atoning death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
MVAC chaplain Greg Anderson said that the college is keen to keep building Gospel partnerships with local Anglican parishes and that the Rector and people of Saint Matthew’s, Wingham have a real gift of Christian hospitality and have been actively reaching out with God’s love to college families.
