The Videos linked below were recorded VERY informally at a Fairfield Prayer night. In between sessions of small group prayer, I recounted stories from the history of the Gospel in Fairfield – from the establishment of the Colony of NSW through to the present. Much, much more could be said – for example about the work done through other denominations.
During a time of big change for the Parish, it was hoped these stories might remind us that the proclamation of the gospel in Fairfield, by no means began, nor will it end with us.
Attached here is also the prayer sheet we used – each of the 4 sections on the prayer sheet corresponds to one of the 4 Story sessions.
The 5th video is some super8 footage of the parish back in 1971!
