At the recent local Healing from Heaven conference hundreds of Christians learnt about, and had a chance to put into practice, the Biblical ministry of healing.

The experience and testimonies of healing flowed freely, it seemed almost too simple.

At one session around 175 people testified to some level of divine healing, many amazing. The organisers asked folk to write down their stories, however only some responded. Follow link to just a few of these which we are able to share on line.

There were over 250 registrations for the day conference and 300 plus at the evening sessions. This included folk from many different churches in our region and beyond.

Contact Shellharbour Community Church or Shellharbour City Baptist Church for inquiries.

24th August 2014, Wanderlust Productions, the producers of Finger of God, Furious Love and Father of Lights have produced a fourth film ‘Holy Ghost. The movie features many well known Christian leaders including the eminent theologian R.T. Kendall. Bishop Joseph Garlington and Bill Johnson.  

These movies dramatically portray what God is doing worldwide today.   

Shellharbour Community Church is one of the few places in the world where there is a pre-release showing of ‘Holy Ghost’ (See on Facebook the Australian trailer which includes the Australian tour of just 5 cities). The director of the movie will be present. Admission is free, but an offering will be taken to cover costs. This is major coup for the region.  


11th September 2014– Ark Van Tour. Rod Walsh (the ‘Ark Man’) from Creation Ministries will be at the Albion Park Presbyterian Church. He has a van with models of Noah’s Ark. He takes a controversial stand on a literal interpretation of the Genesis account of creation. I include this event after alerting the sponsor (Don Burgess) that most Christians would probably not share all his views, and for some it’s a divisive topic. All are invited to be either stretched, affirmed or just think a bit.       


Coming in Sept 2014. Launch of City Women Illawarra. (follow link). Connecting women with vision for the needs of he community, making a difference and impacting the region. .
