The North New South Wales (NNSW) Conference has created a brand new documentary entitled Until He Comes to celebrate their centenary this year.

Produced by a dedicated production team and premiered as part of the Conference’s “Celebrating the Centenary” online program, the documentary explores the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in NNSW and how people engaged in Adventist mission with innovation and adaptability.

“Celebrating the Centenary” was live-streamed to Facebook and YouTube on Friday evening and Sabbath morning, October 16 to 17. It was put together by the NNSW communications department to replace the Conference’s family camp—which the NNSW Executive Committee were forced to cancel due to COVID-19—where its centenary celebrations were scheduled to take place.

“The program was designed with the idea of ‘from our home to yours’ as we couldn’t meet together face to face or have a celebration together,” explains NNSW president Pastor Adrian Raethel.

To conclude the centenary celebrations, the 40-minute documentary was premiered on Sabbath afternoon.

“‘Celebrating The Centenary’ and Until He Comes were produced for families and individuals to be reminded that they are part of a bigger family in the NNSW Conference and that we all have one mission and that is to see the name of Jesus uplifted in our Conference,” said NNSW general secretary Pastor Abel Iorgulescu.

“We weren’t going to allow COVID-19 to stop us from celebrating what God has done, so we moved our program online because we wanted to remind everyone both young and old about the way God has led us in the past,” he concluded.
