The Tin Can Bay Anglican congregation, led by Lay Preacher, Mrs Lillian Lochel, is convening this year’s World Day of Prayer Service, which has been prepared by Christian women in Taiwan.

Our Cooloola Coast WDoP Service will be at 10am on Friday 3 March 2023 in the Cooloola Cove Veterans & Community Hall, corner of Nautilus Drive and Santa Maria Court, behind the Cooloola Cove Shopping Centre.

How topical that the country in focus for 2023 is Taiwan. We wonder if there is anyone here who is from Taiwan or has visited Taiwan? Last year’s focus was upon England, Wales and Northern Ireland, so it was easy to organise displays of memorabilia and other items of interest.  Particular thanks to our Guest Speaker, Jacquie Cross.

The Theme chosen is ‘I have heard about your faith’ from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Christians in Ephesus. The Bible Reading is Ephesians 1:15 – 20.

We are indebted to the Cooloola Wesleyan Methodist congregation and to Reverend Gary McClintock in particular, for taking charge of music, sound and electronics, including the powerpoint presentation about Taiwan.

I know it’s going to be a very interesting, joyful morning, with scrumptious shared morning tea following the Service.

I love this annual opportunity for the various Christian congregations to gather, pray, and socialise together, sometimes in Rainbow Beach, occasionally in Tin Can Bay, and once again in Cooloola Cove.

With lots of people new-ish to the Cooloola Coast, we are looking forward to welcoming you on Friday 3 March.

Queries? Please contact Lillian 0428 718 786 or myself, or 0400 756 615.
