Congratulations to Rev Andrew Broadbent!

During the last two weeks I was part of the team that had planned and hosted the Deacon Intensive (a core component of formation for Deacon candidates) and the 2015 National Deacons Conference for Deacons in the Uniting Church in Australia. A busy but enriching time.
Congratulations to newly ordained Rev Andrew Broadbent

One of the candidates, Andrew Broadbent, was ordained on February 22nd in Perth, Western Australia. Many blessings for your ministry, Andrew!
Andrew worked for many years with TEAR Australia*. His ministry placement is at Busselton, Western Australia.
Rev Dr Ian Robinson preached the ordination sermon, Come stand with me:the clear lens, which you can read at this link. 

*TEAR Australia is a movement of Christians responding to the needs of poor communities around the world. Their activity is shaped by a belief that God loves all people, and in Christ offers them the opportunity of a new life. A core belief is that God is just, and has particular care for the poor and those who suffer as victims of injustice.
