Working Together Towards Belief

Seven local churches across four denominations, representing more than 1000 people in the Northern Illawarra are working together to present a series of public events that tackle some of the big questions that people commonly have about the Christian faith. 
The ten part series called ‘Towards Belief’ has been created in response to research conducted across Australia by McCrindle, one of the country’s leading market research companies.
Producers, Olive Tree Media, analysed that research and set about talking with over 30 of the world’s leading Christian scientists, academics and philosophers, to grapple with the 10 most common issues Australians have regarding faith, including suffering, its relationship with science, and abuse within the church.
From this, they created the series of videos called ‘Towards Belief”.
Olive Tree media spokesman and presenter Karl Faase says Towards Belief deals with ‘belief blockers’. “We talk with some of the best Christian minds / thinkers across the globe,” says Karl, “to give those with serious philosophical questions responses that have both academic rigour and accessible information.”

Don't Hold Your Breath For Better Internet

As the NBN inches its way toward every home in Australia, don't go thinking all your internet problems may soon be over.

While our Facebook post last week prompted an outcry over the appallingly unreliable internet available to us on the Seacliff Coast, according to the NBN rollout, we are not even on their radar.

A spokesman for NBN Co has confirmed as yet, although the NBN will be rolled out to Australia's 8 million homes eventually, there is no plan for the northern Illawarra to even join the rollout map for at least the next 18 months, which means the National Broadband Network could potentially not reach this part of the world before 2020.

Crazy Seas Spice Up Paddle Against Poverty

The weekend's 15th annual Paddle Against Poverty has been hailed a huge success, with 100 paddlers hitting the water at Stanwell Park for the 14 km paddle to Thirroul.

Crazy surf meant it was challenging to get past the shore break, but with the help of jet skis and expert paddlers happy to lend a hand, all 100 made it out.

In what has been described as the worst conditions in at least 8 years, paddlers endured rain, large swell and wind, making it to Headlands, before calling it quits.

Organisers toyed with cancelling the event, however when they received such enormous support, decided to go ahead, and were glad they did, so far raising more than $15,000, with more to come.
