National Day of Thanksgiving – Saturday 27th May 2017


National Day of Thanks next Saturday 27th May


Saturday 27th May is Australia’s National Day of Thanks.  What are you doing to celebrate thanking God and thanking those who have made a difference in your life or your community? 

This year we are focusing on people in the Trades, have a look at the focus page on our website Then there is the Personal Focus where you can seek out and thank the Unsung Heroes in your life. 

Throughout the year we have endeavoured to encourage you to build a life of gratitude.  Our National Day of Thanks is the ideal opportunity for us as a Christian Nation to express gratitude first to God, and then to those around us who make such a difference in our lives and the lives of others.
