Newman is a mining town in the heart of the Pilbara, located inland about 450 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland. It has a population of around 3000 people and an additional fly-in fly-out workforce of around 800. It is a very young and multicultural town of high salaries and long working hours. There is also a high turnover of locals and FIFO workers. As Newman is quite isolated from surrounding towns, there is a real sense of community in town. There are lots of children in town but few teenagers, as high-schoolers usually go to boarding school elsewhere.
We are excited to announce that the Kyngdon family will move here in December. Roger will be the Minister of Newman Anglican Church.
November Prayer Points for Newman
Give thanks that the Kyngdon family will arrive in Newman next month. Roger will be the new minister. Pray for the congregation as we make plans for our Christmas services and outreach in the community. May we present the true meaning of Christmas to those who don’t yet know Jesus.
