More than 130 delegates from churches across the North New South Wales Conference (NNSW) gathered at Stuarts Point Convention Centre from February 25 to 27 for a weekend of prayer.
Gathering church members of all ages, Prayer Conference is an initiative that, according to NNSW prayer coordinator Charissa Torossian, is designed to encourage spiritual revival and renewal, inspiring a closer walk with Jesus.
In its seventh year, the event was themed Acts Again, focusing on what can be learned about prayer from the early church’s experience in the book of Acts.
Delegates put into practice what they learned by praying for timely issues. “After the challenges COVID-19 brought us last year, it was timely that we could intercede together for the unfolding crisis in Ukraine and for the flood crisis that was developing here in Australia too,” said Mrs Torossian.
“We were tremendously blessed to hear Spirit-filled messages from all our speakers. Moments of united prayer and powerful testimonies of answers to prayer were so inspiring,” she added.
Guest speakers at the event were Hamilton church pastor Justin Torossian, Bible worker Hana Nakagawa, NNSW secretary Pastor Abel Iorgulescu and former Bible worker Tom Kent. A children’s program run by Hillview church member Celia Moncrieff was a new addition to this year’s event.
First-time attendee to the event Make Movono enjoyed the experience. “It was amazing. More than I ever imagined,” she said.
