As we edge closer towards 100 years of BCA on 26 May 2019, we remember the people who have gone before us and those who shared the vision of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ across our nation.
BCA’s role over the years grew and developed as different needs arose. Over the last century BCA has enjoyed responsibility for ministries ranging from flying padres, church services, Scripture in schools and family counselling, to welfare and medical services. Mission vans, hostels, hospitals, the Flying Medical Service, Mail Bag Sunday School, clergy, nurses and others played their part in taking the love of Christ to all corners of our vast continent. Men and women took the good news of Jesus and shared His love in practical ways. BCA worked hard to meet people’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs in locations that were starved of services and support systems. A number of our original ministries remain today in addition to new ministries that have been added over the years.
The basic characteristics of the men and women who serve Bush Church Aid – their great love of God, their unwavering determination and perseverance – have not changed in nearly 100 years.
All at BCA look forward to celebrating the men and women of God who have gone before us in the name of Christ. We want you to join in our celebrations. There will be special services at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney and we have invited churches across the country to take part in BCA Sunday. We are in the process of putting together resources that you can use in your church, Sunday School or Bible study group.
