The Rev Gloria Shipp recently shared with ABM all the activities and ministries she has been involved with over the past year.

It has indeed been a fruitful and blessed time, as Rev Gloria continues to serve faithfully in the communities she loves.

Here are several snippets from her latest update;

"The Reconciliation Luncheon held on the 19th September was attended by 70 guests. We were fortunate to have Bishop Chris McLeod as our guest speaker and have received many favourable comments on his talk...

The Women of the Bible afternoon was held in November. The women looked at were: Mary & Martha, Rahab, Naomi & Ruth, Queen of Sheba, we ran out of time and didn’t get to look at Song of Solomon. The afternoon invoked a lot of sharing and personal stories amongst the ladies.

We asked the ladies for feedback at the end of the day and they all expressed a desire to have at least two of these afternoons next year as there was so much content and discussion that we could easily fill two days. We have already organised our first one for May 2018.

Eddie (my husband) and I had a workshop with the JJ’s boys in May painting boomerangs for NAIDOC week. In June this year I resigned my position as Chaplain at the Orana Juvenile Justice Centre, due to ongoing health issues, the boys presented me with a painting and flowers in appreciation for the time I had spent with them. I had been working in the center 2 days a week as well as holding Sunday service out there once a month with Fay Jorgensen assisting me and significant days’ services.

I continue to be thankful for all the support given to this ministry from ABM which enables these programs to continue."
