More Than Gold at Homebush Bay
In 1993 the 2000 Games were awarded to Sydney. the preparations for the bid and the concept design for Homebush Bay go back at least another 5 years.
From the morning - 4.30am - when I was out on a field at Homebush Bay it was time for work.
I rang 2WS by 5am. Sunday night I was interviewed on 2GB
there were submissions to write - to the planners of the site, transport needs and presenting the vision of local ministry
to supplement city wide ministry. I was on 3 - 5 commitees.
The city wide ministry adopted the name - Quest Australia More Than Gold
and I negotiated an agreement that I organise the local Homebush Bay More Than Gold Committee for local ministry.
following on from the 1993 briefing to local ministers at my Auburn Church
our 1996 More Than Gold Luncheons
and the Homebush Bay and Inner West Aussie Awakening Easter Prayer Vigils held on site
we were the only comittee to also hold New Years Eve Prayer Vigils.
from Homebush Bay to the world.
,In September 1999 I was given a new computer for internet ministry in 2000.
It was a steep learning curve with many late nights.
CRN and a collegue built www.pastornet.net.au/hb2000 to make local ministry available overseas
,I found a Christian Hosting site and set up and maintain a local ministry site originally based in Newington.
Newington precinct 1 and 2 were the Athletes Village during the Sydney Games..
