On the 13th October, over 700 elders from the greater Melbourne area gathered at the Melbourne Assembly Hall for a motivating and encouraging meeting. Representatives of the Australasia branch office, along with both the Convention and Hospitality Committees were present to provide an update on how congregations can be involved in showing hospitality for international delegates attending the 2019 Melbourne International Convention. 

Information was also given on the process publishers can follow in volunteering for hospitality, and for convention departments such as cleaning and attendants. Several department overseers provided an update on the progress that had already taken place in making the necessary preparations for the convention.

All left the meeting with a sense of appreciation for the enormous effort being made to ensure that the 2019 Melbourne International Convention takes place decently, by arrangement, and above all, brings glory to Jehovah’s name. The congregations to which they returned were infused with the same excitement that the elders carried with them.

Some wonderful trips,events are being planned as we speak.

 

The Otways region is around 3 hours from Melbourne, but varies depending on what part of the region you are visiting.

Renowned for waterfalls, the striking cool temperate rainforest of the Great Otway National Park boasts one of the highest rainfalls in the state. Whether chilling-out or cooling-off, a waterfall makes for a stunning natural backdrop. On cooler days, especially after rain, watch the falls transform into a roaring curtain of water. And on a hot summer’s day, enjoy some shady respite through the sheltered forest to the water’s edge.

Boasting a mind-blowing collection of walking tracks and trails across amazingly diverse terrain, choose your landscape – cliff top, coastal, rainforest or bush trail or all four at once!

The Californian Redwoods

Located along the picturesque Aire Valley Road, close to the quaint town of Beech Forest, this is a delightful place to stop and enjoy a picnic or just a short stroll into the forest. The awe-inspiring Californian Redwoods (Sequoia trees), were planted alongside the river in 1939.

This unique forest is enchanting and is an experience that you will not forget.

TIP: You are only a few minutes drive to Hopetoun Falls, so try and allow time to check it out too!
