The book of Revelation gives us an amazing glimpse of the future that God has in store, and towards which everything is heading. The Apostle John is shown the gathering of God’s cleansed and protected people:
After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands. Revelation 7.9 (HCSB)
At Northmead Anglican Churches we are convinced that the world – people from every nation, tribe, and language – need to hear the news about the lordship and saving work of the Lamb, Jesus Christ. We are convinced of the truth that “there is no other name under heaven given to people and we must be saved by it” (Acts 4:12)
Because of this glorious future and our powerful God, we keep seeking to send out and support Christian witnesses to speak about Jesus from within our own communities, around Australia, and throughout the whole world.

Valencia is located on the east coast of Spain and is the country’s third largest city. Like many other areas of Spain, Valencia has a strong cultural identity and autonomy.
Mike and Tania both work alongside the Lovells to support their local church ministry. They are involved with university and high school aged students in Valencia through the local ministries of GBU (university) and GBE (high school).
Tony and Susan Wright
Tony and Susie, Hannah, Ethan and Sophie arrived in Fiji in early 2013 to be involved in student work with Pacific Students for Christ. PSFC has a vision to see tertiary students reached and equipped for Jesus Christ in Fiji and the Pacific.
The Fijian university environment creates a number of opportunities for gospel work. Firstly, university is a time for many students to considering the claims of Jesus – often for the first time as an independent adult. Secondly, students have the opportunity to be taught and trained from the Scriptures to know and share Christ. This is vital as they leave university to become leaders in the church, the workplace and in wider society. Thirdly, there exists the opportunity to reach people from many nations. Fijian universities attract large numbers of students from throughout the entire South Pacific region.
Tony has been invited to be the first full-time worker for PSFC. Susie will support him in that work while taking care of the family.
