Karratha is the residential, education and service centre for the West Pilbara region. Located about 850 kilometres south-west of Broome, 25 per cent of the people in Karratha work in the resources sector. As a result, a culture of extreme materialism exists in the town. The local economy is supported by tourists, who visit during the cooler months.

July Prayer Points for Karratha
Many congregation members serve as volunteers with the Dampier Mission to Seafarers. Pray for them and ask that God will work through the ministry to bless workers from across the world.
