Mackay’s population is booming largely on the back of mining operations in the Bowen Basin. Miners have a huge impact on Mackay as a town, having high incomes, being transient and shift working. Yet, what are Mackay churches doing to reach out to miners with the gospel? If you know, I’d love to hear about it!
We’ve heard some churches starting play groups for mums with young kids and in this way seeking to provide for wives whose husbands spend days at a time in the mines. Awesome! We hope that as a new church we can think through how to structure our life together in such a way that we are accessible to miners and to think about how we can serve the mining community.
