Adelaide Hills bushfires - Donate to Red Cross

The bushfires have swept over Sampson Flat and surrounding areas this week, rendering many people homeless. Red Cross has registered more than 800 people affected by the fires and will help them reconnect with their loved ones and provide psychological first aid.

If you are able to donate any money towards their relief efforts, Red Cross would be grateful to take your call.

Call: 1800 811 700
Mail: Send a cheque or money order to: Australian Red Cross Supporter Service, GPO Box 2957, Melbourne VIC 8060

And please pray for those affected by, and fighting, the fires.

Holy God, creator and sustainer,
we pray for those affected by bushfire.
For those who fight the fires, bring strength.
For those reporting the news, bring compassion.
For those hurt, bring healing.
For those mourning, bring comfort.
Loving God, encourage our generosity to those who suffer loss.
Bless us, and let the light of your countenance shine upon us.
We ask this through your son, our Lord, Jesus Christ,
who came that we might have life and have it abundantly.
