beginnings - the Vision

In 1993 a local Pastor came to the Homebush Bay area
and had a vision, a dreeam
that if Sydney was awarded the 2000 Olympics there could be a local on site ministry.

later that year at about 4,20am he stood with a crowd on site to hear "Sydney"
by Sunday night he was being interviewed on radio sharing his dream.

this began seven years preparation.

  Good friday night and New Year's Eve

Tower 20   is all about shining the light of Christ
                                  and  prayer

a confidence that Jesus Christ is Lord
even in the face of adversity

that faith in Christ prevails even where there is unbelief

that God restores, saves, heals our lives.


Enduring Faith carries the torch until this day.

eternity

On Friday 19th September the world watched the Opening of the  2000 Games at Homebush Bay, Sydney.
During the ceremony a team presented the theme
"Eternity"

In his recorded message, Pastor Graham took up this theme.

the organisers acknowledges the work of Arthur Stace who after being saved, was captivated one Sunday night by the preacher at the Burton St Baptist Church

"Eternity!  Eternity!

oh that I could write the word ""Eternity" on the streets of Sydney.

Arthur could hardly write

but he went out after church and took out a piece of chalk from his pocket and in perfect copperplate handwriting wrote the word
"ETERNITY" on the footpath.
this he did for the rest of his life.

It was written by the authorities on the Sydney Harbor Bridge on new years eve 2000.

Now the organisers of the 2000 Games wrote up "Eternity"

(more details and references later - draft stage)

ongoing ministrty

by 2007 I made the comment to a Manager of Sydney Olympic Park Authority:

  we spent 7 years preparing for the 2000 Games
  and it took (those of us at the centre)  on site 7 years to come down"

each subsequent Olympics I have gone to SOP  to pray for  the Olympics of the day.

at the moment developing links with Ministries in London for 2012.
