The future and hope of every Church and Nation is said to be it’s Youth. This is a logically accepted and important concept for the survival of a nation. The Church in Australia has continuously endeavoured to implement new strategies for the attraction of its youth, involving them in fields such as, religion, education and social activities. By this, our entire community has and will continue achieving successful results.
Jesus calls us to follow, “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest”. Mathew 11:28.
