Broken Hill- Flying Padre

Broken Hill Patrol Ministry - "Flying Padre"

How can the Uniting Church support people in the far north west of NSW, who may be hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest church (actually nearest anywhere)? Well the Flying Padre, now a part of Frontier Services, has taken on that challenge.

The Flying Patrol is based at Broken Hill.

Equipped with a single engine plane, stations and towns such as Ivanhoe, Wilcannia, Tilpa, Tibooburra and Menindee are visited to provide pastoral care to isolated people.

We support this role and hope to support this ministry through prayer, financial support and hopefully another visit.
We have contributed donations, but have also organised trips out to Western NSW.

We painted the church at Tibooburra in 2004! We also painted and renovated a number of community buildings in various towns in Western NSW during that visit. The visit in 2008 was to provide practical assistance to finish off work on the new hangar prior to its opening in April 2008.
