God was on Both Sides of the Beach

On the 1st of July 1871, the London Missionary Society boats arrived in the Torres Strait and, in an amazing act of reciprocal kindness and courage, were welcomed by the local people. 150 years on, the Gospel has taken root in the Torres Strait and a powerful local church exists, largely unknown to the rest of the Anglican community.

This 5-part video study presented by the Reverend Canon Steve Daughtry introduces the Anglican Church in the Torres Strait and the Coming of the Light.
