The Parish of Yeronga: centenary address

“There have been many amazing priests who have served as caretakers of our Lord’s home here at Christ Church, Yeronga. I think one should be remembered for his ability to serve our Lord with a significant disability. The Rev’d AW Gilbert had only one arm, but this did not deter him from any of his duties, including riding his bicycle around the parish back in 1923,” said Christ Church, Yeronga parishioner Mary Neeve in her recent centenary address

“Other than God’s call to serve in Goondiwindi, one other thing especially attracted me to this parish – the parishioners’ dedication to wider community life. Everyone counts in rural communities. People engage, make things happen, and see needs and action them. Community involvement is central to the local culture and often critical to its survival,” says The Rev’d Dr John Rolley
