Finke River Mission
At Hermannsburg the song ‘Kumbayah’ was sung in fifteen different languages at the same time. Eleven of those languages came from the hearts of the multi-Grammy award winning Soweto Gospel Choir.
Over forty interstate visitors with connections to Finke River Mission joined locals to celebrate over 75 years of God’s work on the Alice Springs Mission Block.
In 2009 Lutheran Community Care was invited to work with Finke River Mission to respond to the needs of the local community. They set up on ‘the Block’ in Alice Springs five years ago.
Pastor Simon Dixon ministers to residents of the town camps, scattered in and around Alice Springs. He prays for the sick in hospital, renal, aged care and alcohol rehabilitation centres.
Ten staff from Lutheran Community Care (LCC) have graduated with nationally recognised qualifications from Swinburne University on Thursday 15 May 2014.
The past and continuing ministry of the Mission Block was celebrated by the unveiling and dedication of an interpretive sign created by the Old Lutheran Church Living History Team.
